  1. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    I got bad info. It seems the new wayfinding signs for CLT that I said were temporary, are in fact permanent. As for the signage itself, that design company robbed us.
  2. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Actually, that's how the terminal was built. The larger areas you see on the ends of the concourses are wider because they have gates all the way around. C Con was expanded the end a year after the terminal opened (1984). B Con got an addition of gates 9-16 in 1988. Here's a shot of the entire terminal on opening day in 1982: And here's the terminal after the Concourse C addition a 1.5 years later:

    They've installed one roadway light and have dug both tunnels to what will be the new terminal. Beyond that, nada.

    Boston did it at Terminal B. They built a soaring new roof over the existing terminal and then tore the old building apart from the inside, all while keeping all gates open. BWI added skylights to give the illusion the ceilings were higher.
  5. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    They were the first grocery store to open uptown in 50 years. They were the original tenant at Seventh Street Station.
  6. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    That's what I'm wondering. It's how tall?
  7. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    If the boarding lounges were larger, the width of the corridors in A, B, and C wouldn't be that much of an issue. I think I read on here that the city and AA had come to an agreement to enlarge gate hold areas on B. What I don't get is why they're spending money on B now if they're simply going to tear it up again in two years. One more item of interest: now that AA will be using five gates on A, and the new A North will empty into the narrow tunnel that connects the terminal to existing A, how clogged is it going to become? Talk about narrow. Even with the existing moving sidewalks (which the American public cannot seem to master), that's going to be A LOT of people being funneled into a small space.
  8. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    Maybe this should go in the Coffee House, but since they were part of the renaissance of uptown in the 90s, I'm putting it here. http://www.charlottemagazine.com/Charlotte-Magazine/February-2018/Reids-Fine-Foods-Announces-Uptown-Location/
  9. 509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    And bad po-mo pyramid-topped ones. Preferably not designed by Johnny Harris.

    Wonder how ugly it will be? That's my favorite view of the skyline (the Brookshire/Belk split), hope they don't eff it up.
  11. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Big difference between the two: gate hold lounges are larger and there are gates only on one side of each terminal. In Charlotte, the hold areas are tiny and the concourses handle gates on both sides. This leads to boarding passengers queuing in the concourses which blocks passengers who are making their ways to other gates. It's maddening out there during a push. One slow baby stroller can block hundreds of people.

    FWIW, the remodel on B is moving along. Terrazzo flooring prep began at the end of the concourse on Friday night. Sadly, what I thought was going to be a higher ceiling in B is exactly the same height it was before. The new lighting is OK, but the celotex is as plain jane as you can get. Disappointed.
  13. Crescent Stonewall Station

    The 277 frontage is one of the worst facades of any structure in America.
  14. Charlotte Bike Sharing

    http://www.star-telegram.com/news/local/community/dallas/article195787284.html It's not just Charlotte that's having problems (I had to dodge one lying in the right lane of Randolph Road last night). At least the art community in Dallas is getting creative with them.

    I just stayed in a Moxy night before last. Dump.
