  1. Jacksonville Landing was recently purchased by the city to be demolished. It struggled for 31 years.
  2. The City of Charlotte isn't taking a 30% cut for transacting the deal on their sidewalks. Ticketmaster and Stubhub take that for using their ticket exchange. I would argue that changes the market. If I'm looking to sell my tickets for 'face' then I need to mark them up in order to break even.
  3. What if someone has an old phone w/o NFC? I'm all for using technology to weed out fraud and make it easier to buy/sell tickets. But the15%-20% cut on each side of the transaction that they typically take is absurd.
  4. Wonder what the guys in Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, NE, etc all do with their practice facilities way out of downtown? Think those owner pay for shuttles?
  5. The facility will be too nice NOT to use it for summer camp as well. Other teams who have invested heavily in practice facilities have stopped traveling away to training camp.
  6. Did they ask him how many would be in India?
  7. You aren't building a dome for just one game. You are building it to go from the current ~12 ticketed events per year to something close to the 60 that Atlanta hosts in MBS.
  8. Not as bad as continuing to throw public funds at the current stadium. A dome can be used many more days a year and opens up the type of events you can host. Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta hosted 60 ticketed events its first year. BofA is lucky to host a dozen.
  9. The restaurant describes itself as a place “where foodies flock for authentic Mexican cuisine and cocktails.”
  10. Aside from paying Cintra, wouldn't they have to reengineer things for either of those options? If both lanes are free, won't they have to be upgraded to support tractor trailers and integrated into the current two lanes rather than as a separate road with places to get on/off? Same question for moving it to one free lane one toll lane - which seems like would be more expensive vs just making them both free lanes.
  11. Anyone else been following the “roofietop 210” story on reddit? https://reddit.app.link/qGbcWN2apN https://reddit.app.link/LC89WP5apN
  12. https://twitter.com/andrew_dunn/status/981935686612905984 D&D Uptown and Stonecrest are closing as well.
  13. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/food-drink/article207827659.html A spokesperson for Dean & Deluca's corporate office in Kansas City said the company had not expected the Phillips Place closing and that "it's becoming a legal action." Anyone know the scoop here? Seems like they would have to be pretty late/far behind on rent to have the doors locked.
  14. Wu's Cajun Seafood has closed...from the announcement it sounds like Bottle Cap Group will open something else in this spot. https://twitter.com/CharlotteFive/status/979777252106948609
  15. I think they were banned from r/Charlotte on reddit.
