  1. What about turning it into an open air public market like Pike Place in Seattle?
  2. I think it has potential to become retail focused, but agree super high end retail can't be supported by residents here alone - visitors/tourists help that type of retail survive. It could be like an outdoor Brookfield Place or Hudson Yards on a smaller scale. Having high end retail not found anywhere else in the region (outside of Atlanta or DC) plus all the existing dining/bars could make Uptown more of a destination not just for Charlotteans, but also visitors. On the flip side, while it is the largest metro b/w DC and Atlanta, Charlotte is not exactly known as a trend setting fashion hub so it's probably a long shot.
  3. They are actually going to do that? That is music to my ears. I hate the way this currently looks from Trade St. Not inviting at all.
  4. I don't want to be a pessimist but probably stick built 5 story apartments, lol. And they better not tear down that old building on the corner!
  5. Or they could give Graham Street a road diet with wider sidewalks, bike lanes, and street parking
  6. I honestly do not understand the aversion to masks. One reason surgeons wear masks is to prevent spreading any germs to the patient they are operating on. That same logic should apply here.
  7. You'd probably have to build a tall fence around the station and then along the tracks probably 25-50 feet on each side of the station. It wouldn't look pretty, but it would probably mitigate fare jumpers. Would hiring more fare inspectors be worth the cost as well? Unfortunately there's not a lot of good options.
  8. Are the train tracks that cut down the middle abandoned? If so, would be cool if they built some sort of "rail trail" to connect Camp North End to Uptown.
  9. It was working and then all of these states reopened too early and didn't require masks. Don't roll your eyes...
  10. You're completely missing the point. Nobody is saying to get rid of police officers completely. Bender went on to say she and the eight other council members that joined the rally are committed to ending the city’s relationship with the police force and “to end policing as we know it and recreate systems that actually keep us safe.”
  11. When is the second office tower supposed to start construction?
  12. It's working in New York metro area... maybe other states could learn a thing or two... https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/decreasing-new-york-curve-disguises-national-coronavirus-increase-83067461857?cid=sm_fb_maddow&fbclid=IwAR2X4FMfo8xxyOTOlhvL8I03EvmSp2v8yP_oA96uS3dkrJYkSylIAgfZnn0
  13. I wonder how people will feel about widening I-77 to three lanes north of 150 but south of 150 they have only two general purpose lanes and toll lanes... seems kind of odd honestly. I'm not against tolled express lanes, but you'd think they would have prioritized the extra lane where the population is. I still think they should have built an additional general purpose lane with the toll lanes north of 485.
  14. Anyone know when can we see some new/updated renderings?
