  1. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    I went to Weddington High. When did you work there? I'll admit that I was a kid at Weddington that basically never went Uptown. I went one time with my mom to have lunch when I was probably in middle school and a few times for panthers games. Otherwise, never. Of course though, this was back in the early 2000s when there wasn't much going on in Uptown unless you were going to work or to one of the few bars there.
  2. 509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    There are. Leave the cities and you will see poverty everywhere. I was down in Rockingham on Thursday and basically once you get past Monroe, it is poverty all the way to Wilmington. There was a church in Anson county on my trip back that was feeding the poor. There was a line wrapped around the building with people waiting for food.
  3. 2018 – Development Predictions

    That woyld make us an uncatchable #2 in the banking world.
  4. Possibility of a New Panthers Stadium

    nothing like the smell of smelted iron during the game. mmmm.
  5. Carolina Panthers

    The Georgia Dome was also downtown. Sebates mentioned a bunch of areas not in Uptown Charlotte. An isolated suburban dome is going to be a non-starter for a lot of events. Any new stadium needs to remain in, or very close to the CBD. He also mentions York County though. Any suburban county in Charlotte is not going to happen. They're highly republican areas that would likely vote against public funding, and beyond that, they don't have the tax base to support building a billion dollars (or even $500 million) for a football stadium.
  6. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    I'd kind of like to see a Dollar General Express in Uptown. Downtown Raleigh has one and it is pretty nice and convenient. It was like a CVS, but without the pharmacy portion. It was definitely not dumpy like traditional dollar general stores often are. Not so much in this location though. It'd be better suited somewhere like the base of one of the Skyhouse towers.
  7. Optimist Park / Belmont Revitalization Projects

    How do I download plans from Accela? There are approved elevations in there for Central Point that I wanted to share, but I can't figure out how to access the pdf file.
  8. KrispyKreme/JAB Holdings/JAB Beech in Charlotte

    Doesn't really seem like the kind of company to located in a tower in uptown IMO, but what do I know?
  9. First Ward Urban Village and Parks

    If it is a stall tactic, he's beyond useless. Prime land, in a booming city, right on a newly opened transit line. Success is virtually guaranteed.
  10. The River District

    Calling it the Sprawl District probably wouldn't be as enticing.
  11. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    Most of Langston looks high quality,but that section of cheap looking wood balconies kills that building for me.
  12. 300 South Tryon and Kimpton Hotel

    Wasn't allowed until recently I believe
  13. Optimist Park / Belmont Revitalization Projects

    They have started clearing the land for the pulte townhomes at 10th and seigle.
  14. Amazon HQ2

    He may just be talking about presidential and Senate elections where gerrymandering has no impact.
  15. UNC Charlotte Football

    Charlotte usedto be a relevant program playing in a conference with Cincinnati's Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Houston, and other good programs. We had the 2nd best winning percentsge in mens hoops in that conference despite louisville, cinco, marquette, and Memphis being regulars in the top 25. This is when cincinwas at their peak and often top 5. Since 2005 we have fallen farther than basically any program in the country. We have made poor coaching hires, extended and overpaid those poor coaching hires, and seen attendance drop from over 7000 per game (top 25% in country) to 3-4,000 on a good night. As fans have left the profram, so too have donations. Judy has done an abysmal job managing the athletic department, but has a few whale donors that love her so she's been able to keep her job. The few thousand fans that still really truly care have had enough. She's been at the school for 30 years as athletic director. Nobody should ever be athletic director at one school that long. If you're good, a bigger school will hire you. If you suck, you're fired. Only two other ads have been in place longer than her and they are both at vert successful programs.
