  1. I honestly don't think there is anything wrong with the vue i don't think anyone does, i think its an awesome project, but I think that 210 trade has a huge advantage over it. The reason why people have been hesitating on the vue, is because they wanted to see what was up with the 210 trade project, because as far as entertainment options amenities, and proximity to other things 210 trade kicks the vues butt in all respects. I think that once this building starts to sell out the market will switch to the next best thing, the vue. I think the speed at which 210 trade is apparently selling is showing us all, the potential of this market. I am going to be honest, I was doubting the market, now I'm wondering when our next 50 story building is going to get built.

  2. This is what I expected, 210 trade is kicking the vue's butt, this has to be discouraging for a building that has done nothing but mass advertising, and is only sold out 50%, but then again the Vue is way over there, and 210 trade is in the middle of everything. I think that once this building sells out we'll see the sales at the vue pick up, I am very suprised how the sales are going on this building, incredible.

  3. They have renderings of the back of Trademark, and I think the key difference is that it has condos facing out the back for much of its height. In Courtside, no unit faces out the back, so there are no large glass panels or balconies or anything.

    It still could turn out to be less than appealing. But my vote is that it will turn out much better than the back of Courtside.

    I know I have the renderings too, I also have the cad rendergings too, while there is definately glass on the back, it has no flow and I don't think many of us are going to be very happy with it.

  4. Unfortunately the view ESPN, Foxsports ABC, NBC, CBS, american public and the city of charlotte are going to have from Bank of America Stadium of Trademark isn't going to be much better, at least courtside is 17 floors and not as visible, don't get me wrong I love Courtside, its one of my favourite additions to the skyline, I don't mean to discount it, but Trademark might be more embarassing we'll see.

  5. So has anyone gotten a look at the brochure's yet, I have a pretty funny find that I wished to share. The find I have made is very unprofessional of a graphic artist. If you go to metterraces PDF brochure you can see a group of people toasting glasses, but somethings wrong with the image, there is a huge corbis watermark on the picture, I actually found the picture on corbis. For those who don't know corbis is a huge stock photo database,with hundreds of thousands of stock photos


    search for toast

    go to page 10 of 40

    it is picture AAHA001310

    I priced the image around $150-300, not that expensive for an advertising budget, especially if you compare this to the vue who's budget is obviously incredible.

    Does bad design and bad buiness practices by a designer make anyone else feel less about a project?

    hopefully other people find this funny because I did, there are also great pix of charlotte on this site, this picture came from corbis, enjoy


  6. am I actually seeing real hardwood floors???!?!?!? Looks like they have been doing a lot of work without any of us knowing about it, I still can't get over this place, where did you find the rendering at urbancharlotte?

  7. I'm am definately very interested to see how this is going to be done, I haven't seen much as far as the building of underground parking decks go, I'm curiously watching both in charlotte and city market savannah (they are building a W and a underground parking deck), i'm noticing that the retaining walls are at least 50-60 feet away from the street is more to be placed there? or is i just going to be filled in with dirt, I mean I remember my trip to ground zero (sorry to compare this to that) and there was no exposed ground anywere, it was all structure, is this eventually going to look like that? its going to be an entire block of foundation? or is there going to be some dirt areas?

  8. go to add replay then go to choose file which is right above the smileys, and after you find the photo (save it on your desktop, makes it easier to find) then press add this attachment, it helps a lot if you have photoshop or some photoedditing software and can resize it, hopefully that'll help

  9. yea I go to scad right now for undergrad, but I like the environment in Atlanta more than Savannah, I know I'm from charlotte and not an atlanta hater, but what can you do, my gf is not thrilled by the possible move to atlanta however.

  10. Okay I guess that makes sense, haha, I wish he would consider southpark, we'll see if they test novare towers or not in sp, but I don't think there'll be too much opposition as long as they keep far enough away from the affluent old money areas
