  1. I look at this periodically because I like this project, but I resolved not to post, as I don't want to burst anyone's bubble that Charlotte isn't a real city. This was too good to pass up though! Trust me: a hick town like Charlotte is not getting a Foster any time soon (if ever). Foster is far more suited to a nice lowrise project in Chapel Hill since it's far more cosmopolitan and erudite than Charlotte. Charlotte will just keep building heinous, 20 to 30 story, eyesore residentials like the Ascent and Skyhouse.
  2. Since moving back to NC, I thought it would be fun to participate in this forum. This is ridiculous. Fortunately, Chapel Hill is more cosmopolitan. Most of you are great. For the Insecure, good luck! I'm not interested in childish banter.
  3. I would like to, but a few numbnuts acted like 5 year olds when I expressed an opinion. I have spoken highly of this project from the time the first rendering was released and look forward to seeing the progress when I attend Panther games.
  4. I'm honestly shocked by the insecurity of some people. Charlotte is a nice little city, but in my view, Cincinnati is a much nicer little city. Indianapolis, imo, also blows the doors off of Clt. I like old architecture. I find it absurd that anyone would care, let alone be offended by that opinion. Cincinnati
  5. That's true. I simply stated my opinion. Not everyone likes old buildings. I do. Nonetheless, Hamboner and Lewy apparently were offended that I said other cities were better. That's absurd. London is my favorite city, but I would not be offended if people preferred NY or Paris. I simply wouldn't care. As someone initially from NY, I regard Clt as a nice little city. To me, it's tiny, but I like it. If some of these guys can't take the fact that not everyone thinks it's the next Dubai or Shanghai, then they need mental counseling.
  6. Cincinnati, Pittsburg, SLC, and Denver have beautiful old architecture which CLT lacks. I like old buildings and prefer those cities for that reason.
  7. If you're so insecure about Charlotte, then you need to consult someone. In my view, Minneapolis, like many other third tier cities, such as Denver, Austin, Portland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Salt Lake, are better than Charlotte. All of the second tier cities (Dallas, Houston, Seattle, Atlanta, and Miami) are better than Charlotte too. It's my opinion.
  8. I'll take Charlotte's typical 55 degree Winters days over Minnesota's 20 degree winters any day!
  9. Personally, I think that Minneapolis is a better city than Charlotte. However, I could not endure those eight month winters.
  10. Does he seriously have a project lined up for Clt? His NY projects in that height range are spectacular.
  11. Hopefully, this will be Clt's tallest tower. A 900 footer by Robert AM Stern would be good!
  12. Very nice! I'd insert a fountains comment, but since I'm the only fountains and sculpture fan, I'll refrain!!
