  1. all great pics of the VUE ! Why don't they have an OxBlue webcam again ?? Please, local photogs, keep posting the pictures you take for those of us who live outside of the state!
  2. Looks like the Charlotte Business Journal this week reported-- in the Mechanics Liens section: Mechanics' Lien by Shiel-Sexton for $471,424.00 against Ghazi just filed. Mechanics Lien by Southern Mechanical (HVAC for EpiCenter) - three more liens as well, for over $240,000.00 (listed against his Pacific Ave, LLC)
  3. Don't you think perhaps some of the "tough guidelines" should remain in place? Of dozens, scores of people I know own uptown condos in Charlotte, so so very many have openly sat around and chatted about their "piggyback loans." I was sitting around at a complex BBQ/pool party, and it was as though every single neighbor of mine had done that to obtain financing. Two or three fellas were bragging about how they "knew this great accountant who does mortgages on the side" and got them 103%, even 105% financing -- so that they didn't even need to come to the table with money for closing costs --
  4. Very excited myself about the G&C Club. I am good friends with some of the managers, and it's a good concept. Seaboard Street extension can't open too soon! Interestingly, the original Garden & Gun Club is here in Charleston, and we have a new magazine that P&C puts out called "Garden and Gun." Definitely for the very elite! Garden & Gun Magazine - an award winner! Click this link for their website.
  5. uptownliving, alas, if this were only the case. I, too, thought this would substantially reduce the train noise but it will not. The ADM plant with their silos operate what is known as a private grade crossing. This private series of tracks cuts directly down the middle of their plant property -- meaning that there is still a grade level set of tracks that will necessitate blowing their horns. In addition, there is a whistle post located just around 12th Street that won't be removed, either. When an engineer sees a whistle post, he/she must blow the horn in a specified sequence, (Long, L
  6. Pile driving is done. I awoke to it at my place a block away each morning for days ... I also witnessed it... they were just over there the other day placing in the wooden beams to fill between the H-beams that they drove. I don't know - I walk by 1-2 times every day, and I am seeing activity there daily. I know it appears slow going right now, but they seem to be moving along.
  7. As I am sitting in my condo right now with the balcony doors open, I am listening with glee to the loud ping-pinging as we speak !! Today when I was walking home to lunch, the site is on my way home and I stopped and talked to the foreman for a good ten minutes at the site ... the gate was open so I just walked in to take a look! He told me that these will go in quickly (as they are just to support the earth below-grade while they dig down) and not anywhere near as deep as, say, at the Avenue. It's so cool though!
  8. I don't know if this applies, however, this was the whole issue with the number of billboards Adams Outdoor, Gannett, etc., could convert to digital in the Charlotte metro area. I do not see why this wouldn't apply -- there are only so many "permits" for electronic ones, and if a company chooses to start a brand-new electronic one, they have to sacrifice a traditional one elsewhere. I know City Council was taking up this issue; it was deferred but I have not heard anything more on this... Here's the link to the council minutes: Charmeck.org City Council Minutes PDF
