  1. Downtown Austin is home to the government of the second most populous state in the union. It has a huge number of employees.
  2. Not really. Cargo operations are mainly overnight when passenger service is nearly zero.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. Somebody lock Johnny Harris in his SouthPark office and take his intertnet and phone access away. It looks like a bad post-modern tower found along I-635 in suburban Dallas in 1985. If I worked at LS3P, I'd be embarrassed to have my name on it.
  6. Hugh McColl did that on purpose to help spur development in areas of uptown that were less desirable at the time. There's no need for that now.
  7. I just don't see BofA going into this project. Why would they anchor a building 6 to 7 blocks away from their current six towers? I was always told the next site they'd build on would be the vacant lot next to Hall House (across from TransAmerica). Wells Fargo makes far more sense on South Tryon. Or someone we don't yet know about.
  8. At this point, why have city government? Shouldn't we just give in and let the brain trust from Eastern NC make all of our decisions? Robersonville knows exactly what Charlotte and Greensboro need.
  9. Let's face it, the NCGA is not looking out for the state's best interest. Economic development be damned. Charlotte City Council have played their cards crappily, but I still place ALL of the blame on ALL of this the General Assembly. Phil Berger and Tim Moore are diabolical. Never forget all of their attempted and successful power grabs over the past four years: Charlotte Airport, Asheville Airport, Asheville water, Greensboro City Council, Wake County School Board, etc...make no mistake, the General Assembly hates cities. I guess they forget it's cities that provide the rest of the state with the revenue it needs just get by.
  10. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/banking/bank-watch-blog/article121383203.html Some people might measure HB2’s effect by the jobs and events that have pulled out of the state, Moynihan said. “But the real risk is not the pulling out – that’s a risk and you feel it more – it’s the risk of never coming in,” the 57-year-old CEO said. “Behind the scenes, people are making choices about where they’re going to do things, whether they’re going to hold a convention here, whether they’re going to locate jobs here,” he said.
  11. Hate to bring this up again, but has anyone ever gotten a yea or nay on whether or not the BofA Corporate Center's lighting scheme is completed? If it is finished, it looks like shiate.
  12. Seeing as that Danny Boy's new house has been under construction on Sharon Lane for nearly five years now, nothing he does surprises me.
  13. I think they should leave the tower crane attached permanently. That way, visitors will assume it's still under construction and will look better when it's finished.
  14. 787s are replacing 767-300s. Anyway, I don't see any European service being discontinued, unless the economy tanks. All AA hubs saw a decrease in European traffic due to softening European demand. That said, God only knows what a Trump presidency will do to the global economy. <<shudder>>
  15. Sorry to keep harping on this, but the new BoA lighting scheme has ruined the building at night. Pelli specifically wanted each terrace to be illuminated at night. The lighting plan won architectural lighting awards in 1993. If the current "crown only" design is the final product, they've ruined a once beautiful nighttime icon.
