    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    They're coming (much to my displeasure--I hate 3-3-3 configurations, not to mention sitting backwards in business). When the 330-300s are retired in 2020, the 787-900 will replace them. The 777-200 might rear its ugly head, but the 300ER is doubtful, as they have first class seats and are used primarily for premium markets that have people willing to spend $7000 for them (JFK-LHR, DFW-HKG).

    The new roadway lights are in test mode. More blue.

    CLT is gate constrained. When AA gains the 7 gates on A Concourse, it has said it plans to add up to 70 new mainline flights per day.

    Still a bad version of an also not great 1980s building.

    I should note that the AA gate and ops area remodels will take significantly more time to complete. They're actually relocating where jet bridges attach to the concourse. Last I heard was late Q2 2019.

    All DL flights have been moved to the south side of Concourse A, with temp interior walls up to completely remodel the north side at one time. The north side of the tarmac level has also been closed to traffic so that baggage make up and operations areas for DL can be remodeled. DL should be in its new space(s) by January. at which point the construction will move to the south side of A for AA's reconfigured gates and ops areas.

    So it got shorter?

    The Bad News Report

    Agreed, but the "unknown" label is bogus. At least it should be if your job is site analysis. My job is to help a large financial company make the right decisions about their brick and mortar locations in 38 states. I'm on an airplane or rental car every day I'm working. I find it difficult to believe no one knows we exist when 50 million people connect through the airport every year. I'm not arguing about educational attainment or number of tech workers. My point is that if your job is site selection, you probably should have a better grasp of geography than the average Joe. I don't know of many cities with populations of 850,000 I'd single out as being "sleepy".

    So we have the ninth biggest airport in the country, yet we're "unknown"? Shouldn't site selection gurus have a better grasp of geography?

    Crescent Stonewall Station

    Drove by it today on the freeway. It's hard to believe that the Proffit Dixon project is still very much under construction, yet it looks light years better from 277 than this POS does. What's a lazy developer do when a project looks like ass? They plant leyland cypress. Just paint the exposed concrete along the loading docks, for God's sake! Even Charlotte beige would be an improvement at this point.

    Everything you said. It's dreadful. Not as bad as the Stonewall Station apartments, but it's a close second.

    Those are what holds the glass panels together. Every sign has them in A North.

    I don’t see any screws or nails anywhere. They look identical to all signs in A North.
