  2. Charlotte Off Topic

    From the recent edition of Chief Executive Magazine. Charlotte is still a hot spot for the under 30 crowd. I typically like to see the positive stats from publications like this which is geared towards the decision makers in companies. Forbes, Times, and USA Today, you can that those stats with a grain of salt. https://chiefexecutive.net/new-opportunity-boomtowns/

  9. University City Projects/News

    Does anyone know what might be developed near the Mallard Wasterwater treatment center off of Highway 29? In the last couple of weeks, there have been earth movers, construction trucks and A LOT of trees cut down. There as been a TREVI VILLAGE sign there for about 2 years or so. I remember before the 2008 market downtown, there was discussion to build a golf community that would straddle the Charlotte/Harrisburg limits....of course that fell through when the recession was in full force.

    OPPPS....I actually thought I was in the AMAZON topic site when I posted this....sorry to have caused a "off the subject" moment!
  11. 509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    Me personally, the fact that Toronto is listed raises the prospect of a national tug of war. It is NO secret that our illustrious President Trump has no love for CEO Jeff Bezos. It would not surprise me that Amazon locates their secondary office in Canada. In terms of the fact that Charlotte was not on the final list, I am definitely not despairing or even second guessing why. A lot of cities such as Minneapolis, San Diego, Houston, Tamp-St Pete, Jacksonville FL, Kansas City MO, St Louis,,,,,were not listed either. I think Charlotte is still ranked and will continued to be ranked high on both headquarters and/or expansion lists!
