    Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    Driving by this morning, I noticed that a demo crew was taking this one down.

    Charlotte Bike Sharing

    Sunday morning? We saw a kid joy riding up and down Tryon then. First noticed him around 3rd street, then again an hour later at 6th where he ignored a stoplight and got hit. The boy was lucky to walk away from it. Because the construction fencing by the Carolina Theatre blocked her view, the driver had half a second to react and slam the brakes.

    So maybe they did not work as closely with the city as they said. From Hawaii News Now: Police still holding dozens of company's scooters seized after botched rollout http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/38210117/police-still-holding-dozens-of-companys-scooters-seized-after-botched-rollout

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    You are on the right track. In 2017, CLT was #7 in the world based on the number of flights, #31 based on passengers. I cannot remember ever seeing Charlotte on a top cargo list, though, or at least not an international one.

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    That's an interesting thought. Any ideas about what we might find?

    Transit Ridership Declines in CLT

    If you cannot find exactly what you are looking for somewhere else, for a little DIY project you can find vote totals by precinct here: https://www.mecknc.gov/BOE/data/Pages/PreviousElectionResults.aspx Transit referendum was on the Nov 3 1998 general election ballot. Without really digging, you have to assume that the precincts have not moved around much, but I think that's a pretty safe assumption.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Today's American Airlines "Tell Me Why" internal podcast discussed Winter 2018 network changes announces this morning. A lot of it centered around changes in Miami and Chicago, but Charlotte picked up a couple of flights (weekly service to Eleuthera and Marsh Harbour in The Bahamas), which were addressed at 11:20: https://soundcloud.com/american-airlines-internal-news/17-may-2-2018-creating-long-term-profitability-vasu-raja Ron DeFeo, VP Global Communications: It seems like Charlotte and DFW are always getting the new routes. Is that right, and tell me why, if so. Vasu Raja, VP Network and Schedule Planning: ... as we see it, there are only three mega hubs on Earth. And what we call a mega hub is a hub that can earn profits that are abnormal to the industry, that are greater than what other hubs can earn across the business, but can also support 700 daily departures, all day, every day. We think there are three of those in the world. We have two of them. ... Fortunately, we have the capacity to grow Dallas and Charlotte as we get more gates next year. ... It is no surprise that those hubs tend to have our highest unit revenue performance. They tend to do really well when challenged by fuel prices or competition, whatever the case might be, so yes, we are big there, we will continue to be big there, and these route are a further sign of our commitment to grow there.

    Myers Park / Eastover Projects

    For the new $1,000,000+ condos, I agree with atlrvr that it's likely to be downsizing empty nesters. I am not at that stage of life yet -- which I think explains why I do not know anyone in a Myers Park condo at this time -- but I am close enough that I see the appeal. Now that we are in the area, I cannot see ever moving to another part of Charlotte. But I might one day want to give up the yardwork, and then hope to find one for a lot less than a million! I am not as familiar with the southern park of Myers Park, but I agree that Eastover / northern Myers Park is not very interesting. It's just nice. Insanely nice, quiet, safe, and very walkable (except for Providence, which is mostly avoidable). And, of course, it's really close to downtown and the airport. As far as better services in other neighborhoods, there's really a lot more here than I knew about before moving in. Most of my shopping is within 1 mile of the house. It does not have a bar or live music scene like a NoDa or Plaza Midwood, but I guess I outgrew that at some point. There are plenty of of nice restaurants and places where you can grab a beer or glass of wine. Last call is probably 9:45, but most of the neighborhood is asleep before then anyway. I was surprised to discover how diverse the housing stock is. There are 8,000 sq ft mansions, sure, but there are also plenty of much smaller homes (1,500 sq ft and up), and lots of apartments, townhomes, condos. In my little subdivision, slightly more than half of the housing units are multi-family, and that includes a lot of 1 and 2 bedrooms.

    Not sure I completely understand the question, but I might have some insight. Are you asking why would people pay those prices when they could buy something less expensive in another neighborhood?

    Yikes! Sorry about that!

    It looks like another 8 million dollar + condos are on the way for Myers Park at www.620queens.com. The old two story house on that site was demolished earlier this month.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    A Concourse it is. This just hit my news feed: https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2018/04/27/aa-continues-to-grow-presence-at-cl.html "These are the new gates that we will acquire once the other airlines move out of the old A concourse," an American Airlines Group Inc. spokeswoman in Charlotte told CBJ. "It will take about a year to renovate the old gates and then we will have access to them."

    They mentioned 7 (I think) new gates online in 2019. Was that the E expansion?
