    I would also add that construction prices are extremely high right now. Concrete and steel are both through the roof.

    And "Hello Sailor" would be your neighborhood bar.

    I'm not quite sure how to articulate this, but maybe "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" works. I finally took a minute to go inside the renovated lobby of First Citizens. It's awful. Like, this is clearly an instance where they made what was working fine much worse. The owner apparently wanted one of every trendiest material in existence, along with every trendiest light fixture possible, crammed all together. And for what should be celebrated as main entrances into the building, the doors in and out are now practically to the side and seem like back doors. As I was standing there, an older couple couldn't even figure out how they came in and where the doors were to get out. And they completely butchered what should have been a simple, naturally ADA accessible entrance off of Tryon Street. I can't fathom why they made something that worked and broke it. Based on the material selections alone, I see this lobby getting renovated again within 5 years. Hopefully with more competence.

    The Vue

    See and I'm thinking "well, the kerning between the V and A is terrible, and the secondary/primary hierarchy is reversed"

    Drinking Beer in Charlotte

    I think I know the answer to this already, but is there any brewery presence in the Ballantyne area yet?

    I wouldn't be surprised for Walgreens (or CVS) to open in another location at that end of Tryon. The Walgreens in the Omni is packed all of the time, it has to be one of there highest grossing locations in the Carolinas.

    Jonas Federal Courthouse Renovation

    The historic obelisk is being relocated out of the way. It will return to it's original home on the Trade Street side closer to the end of the project.
  9. Not over a block, a block. 450 ft. You can easily walk further than that going from the blue line CTC station to the bus bays on the far side of the CTC.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    fwiw, CATS is trying to restart the Mooresville Regional Express with the 77 express lane opening (when all the north express services will get new routes). That service would fall into the $4.40/$8.80 fare class.
  11. There are actually several mockups built, but hard to photograph. I took a closer look this morning, and every bit of it is EIFS. We might have the world's largest styrofoam Bohemian.

    History of Charlotte

    This story makes me feel much less bad about that block being bulldozed for BAC CC and Blumenthal.

    Drinking Beer in Charlotte

    I have to give Blue Blaze a shout-out. I recently got over there for the first time, and I was very impressed. The vibe felt very Birdsong-y, and all the beers I tried were excellent. And a wall of playable string instruments? That's just awesome. They've obviously been rocking for two years already, but I'm glad to finally add them to my very favorites
