    Belk Place: Carolina Theater and Hotel Intercontinental

    I want to know more about how MJ broke somebody's leg in half then made fun of breast cancer.

    Belk Place: Carolina Theater and Hotel Intercontinental

    exactly. it's not like anybody is shocked they're cutting corners here. it's just that they ditched the part of the project that EVERYBODY actually loved. now it's just another one of those towers that they're are building all over the place at this moment. like that fnb tower or whatever with a completely random and useless glass rectangle on the side that will look absurd in five years. but at least this is sets up for the theater to be there for years i guess.

    update https://www.heraldsun.com/news/business/article224633435.html#storylink=latest_side interesting note they they aren't scared by the loop as some claim to be. groundbreaking in 2020 is what they're saying now.

    Legacy Union looks like it would fit in perfectly as part of the New York New York Casino Hotel on the Vegas strip. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York-New_York_Hotel_and_Casino#/media/File:Las_Vegas_NY_NY_Hotel.jpg

    Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    i love what they've done with this box of a building. sleek, modern, and not random geometry to distract, like the out of place rectangles that plague architecture of recent times (springhill smh). this one will stand the test of time and look great balanced against the big towers.

    LU will look good in silhouetted skyline shots and such. iow, the fewer details you will be able to see the better.

    cars too. adding a billion cars to a zone that wants to encourage pedestrian activity is a bit counterproductive. down the road though, it's really just a big waste of space and resources, not to mention being terrible for the planet (like anybody in charlotte cares!!!). in a few short years automated cars will not need to be parked below your building all day taking up prime space. something tells me that charlotte will be remembered for building the last giant parking deck. we'll have discussions here in the future like we do about the old new charlotte coliseum and convention centers being so short-sighted. is there any way for this giant deck to be converted to something else down the road? doubt it. too bad because that's how they're rolling elsewhere. interesting read on futureproofing parking garages: http://www.dreamit.com/journal/2018/1/31/developers-rethink-the-parking-garage-with-rise-of-autonomous-vehicles

    the world's biggest parking garage will ultimately be much worse for charlotte than any pedestrian bridge that might hang in the sky.

    Durham City Center Tower

    the developer did a nice job, but without the historical folks in durham's guiding vision, no telling what could have happened here.

    i complete disagree. the fact that this ins't set back all around like having a little hat on top is what saves this building from being a complete disaster, IMO.

    wow, gotta love how raleigh has killed great projects over time due to "aesthetics". then we get this monstrostity!!! it's like they decided to take as many of the worst elements in architecture in recent years (that needless square on the side, i'm looking at you), lump them together and call it good, but not before throwing the worlds ugliest parking garage in front of it.
