  1. Amazon HQ2

    Who cares if we get Amazon or not, I predict within 10 years they will be a thing of past once these "babies" start popping up in the house!!
  2. You are correct on Ms Leake!
  3. Eastern North Carolina Development

    More of NC's smaller cities need visionary people like Stephen Hill......kudos to people who are willing to plough their money back into the community. http://businessnc.com/stephen-hill-is-betting-art-will-transform-kinston/
  4. Municipalities around the Charlotte Region

    New development proposed around the Cabarrus Arena in Concord. http://www.independenttribune.com/news/hotel-development-coming-near-cabarrus-arena/article_f04c02b8-8cce-11e7-ac23-7fd97ee1bc26.html
  5. Learning from Other Places

    From a distance, it looks like a slum district from Mumbai!!
  6. A second commercial airport for Charlotte?

    One thing I would be curious to know are the percentage of charter flights that depart/arrive at Charlotte-Douglas each day. I could definitely see flights of that nature moved to Concord Regional. This would free up any spaced used by charters for regular commercial flights. I know personally, my parents take those types of flights to place to Biloxi, Memphis (Tunica MS casinos).
  7. The Good News Report

    I wonder if they are going to consolidate with current one that is located near the Concord Regional Airport. The two facilities would be like 4-5 miles from each other. http://www.wbtv.com/story/36134268/kannapolis-city-council-approves-amazon-distribution-center
  8. History of Charlotte

    I do see the old CityFair shopping complex just to the right of the Bank of America Corporate Center under construction!
  9. Durham City Center Tower

    Thanks for sharing. I was curious to know now along this project is. It will be a great addition to the Durham skyline!
  10. Charlotte area "ring cities"

    Phase 1 of downtown Kannapolis's transformation! http://www.independenttribune.com/news/phase-for-kannapolis-downtown-revitalization-approved/article_9f443d34-77b8-11e7-8d7a-d3f3084e6ed4.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share
  11. If NC we're to legalize gambling

    The Catawba Tribe who's reservation is based in York County, SC has a petition before the Bureau of Indian Affairs to build a casino/hotel complex in Kings Mountain NC right off of I-85. I have not heard anything more about the proposal or where the application is at in the federal approval process (think they submitted the information back in 2015 I believe). Apparently the tribe has a agreement with Hard Rock Cafe to operate the resort/casino if it is ever approved. Maybe someone on UrbanPlanet might be privy to this information!
  12. Charlotte Photo of the Day

    At the time of the photo, the names of the buildings from left to right was NCNB Tower, First Union Tower, and Wachovia Tower

  15. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    Looks like the Charlotte "SOUTH Carolina" picture was taken prior to 1982.
