  1. It'ts so awful it lived through two bankruptcies, yet PIT didn't. CLT is still here as a very profitable hub at AA because it's cheap. PIT was shuttered because Allegheny County would't reduce costs for US back when it began to bleed money, CLT on the other hand, asked the airline what it needed and made good on every request.I might think Jerry Orr did our airport a disservice by deferring much needed maintenance, but he did do a phenomenally good job at keeping it a major hub airport. I travel every week. I'll take connecting at CLT over DFW, PHX, ATL or ORD ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. As a matter of fact, I dread my trip home from Albuquerque next week because I have to change terminals at DFW.
  2. I spoke to the folks at JLL. The lighting is still being worked on. All terraces should be lit up by late May.
  3. I'd be happy with the new Northwestern Mutual Life tower in Milwaukee. Simple and elegant.
  4. I'll give you WaMu, but Comerica is just awful beyond words. And everything Michael Graves touched has aged badly.
  5. I still hate it. The eight pane windows below each cornice reek of bad postmodern towers of the 1980s (see WaMu in Seattle, Comerica Tower in Dallas, or Humana in Louisville). When will Charlotte EVER get a a really good modern tower? My guess is never. My hope now is that the future development surrounding Johnny's Erection will hide it from view.
  6. I thought the hotel turned out to be schlock? No?
  7. I have a feeling this is going to be one ugly-ass project at completion. Charlotte: city of blank walls.
  8. Really? What is that, like the biggest parking garage uptown? Jeez! Where's the amenity deck, then?
  9. Even on the same floor? The tower portion floors match up with the stick-built part on the lower floors.
  10. Do y'all think the stick-built apartments fronting Stonewall will lease for the same amount as those in the steel and concrete portion (same floor level)? Seems the noise between units/floors would be wildly different in the two sections. It also just seems odd to me they didn't do it all concrete in the tower section.
  11. I walk to Harris Teeter and Pizza Peel all the time. I thought he just sounded like a whiny millennial. Besides, he works for the Town of Matthews, quite arguably one of the LEAST walkable places in the region.
  12. Downtown Austin is home to the government of the second most populous state in the union. It has a huge number of employees.
  13. Not really. Cargo operations are mainly overnight when passenger service is nearly zero.
  14. BCN will stay. AA does amazingly well with the city pair partially due to Mediterranean cruise traffic in summer. The only thing I can see changing is downgrading the aircraft type (330 to 767).
  15. What? No Risden McElroy twilight renderings available? I was hoping to see a vertical shaft of light bursting forth from the Illuminati beacon on top.
