  1. It probably will have a hotel shortly after the casino’s opening, it’s a lot easier to build a casino quickly than it is a full hotel, they could build a temporary casino facility while they build the full infrastructure
  2. Yes exactly right, and also the type of slot machines they have would be random number generated based versus bingo based like you see at the casinos that don’t have compacts (agreements) with the state. On the surface you won’t be able to tell which is bingo based and which one is based off random number generators as they’ve become virtually indistinguishable. Also the compact they make with the state could limit them, especially if Cherokee gets involved, to the types of table games they offer. For example, maybe only blackjack, or maybe blackjack and roulette but not craps, etc... it is th
  3. Unfortunately I cannot give away much details on this project from my gaming industry contacts but financing is being secured for this project and it is very much a go. They will be partnering with a known casino operations company and they are working to get a compact with the state to offer “Vegas style” gaming.
  4. 576 feet, didn’t make the cut... they shoulda added those spires
  5. It would be amazing if it could somehow be in uptown
  6. I actually think this is great... US Bank should also take over the existing Ally Building once they leave... these moves would allow for a new speculative building to be constructed to hopefully attract a corporate relocation ultimately adding more jobs. And exactly like Ricky_davis said, this was the only building available that could serve for a mass corporate relocation in a type A office building... build another one and another company would come
  7. Panthers night games in Charlotte will be incredible! Too bad there are no prime time games this season
  8. My apologies if this has been explained before but could somebody explain what happened to the two hotels on this site? Is one of them being completed (the one that is further done)?
  9. So on the website it says that sun country flies to Charlotte, can anyone shed any light on that cause I had no idea they flew to Charlotte?
  10. You should go check out their bowling lanes at the casino! It’s pretty cool
  11. The owner of the Hurricanes probably thought it would be easier for them to gain corporate sponsorships and fan support in Raleigh where they are the only professional sports team in town as opposed to competing against the Panthers and Hornets for fan support and more importantly corporate sponsorship dollars...
  12. Hopefully this banana move is better than the last banana move we got
  13. So hypothetically let’s say the land issue gets pushed through and Catawba now has the land in North Carolina to build their casino. They can only operate as a Class II facility until they agree to a compact with the state of North Carolina. Class II means bingo based. So they can have slot machines that their backend math model is based off of bingo patterns as opposed to random number generation as is the case with Vegas Style machines. The Catawba tribe can also operate a poker room but cannot have any table games like blackjack, roulette, etc... (a casual player most likely won’t be able t
  14. Yea but that doesn’t matter for the runways for Charlotte... the current VC-25 (Boeing 747-200 variant) are specifically designed to be able to land on shorter runways in the event of needing to access a region with only a short runway available or a rough combat zone.
  15. British Airways is awful, I just flew them from London to Oslo, it was one of the worst flying experiences, tight space, old plane, and you had to pay for even water! As much as we complain about US carriers they are still way better than at least British Airways
  16. Too expensive to operate because of fuel efficiency in large part to their massive size and 4 engines. Airlines are moving towards more smaller fuel efficient planes that they can run schedules more frequently between two destinations. For example, instead of having two daily flights let’s say between LA and London on a Boeing 747-8 or A380, Airlines now are leaning towards flying 4 daily flights between LA and London on A350s or Boeing 787s. And their operating costs believe it or not will probably be less with 4 daily flights vs the two just because of how expensive the jumbos are vs the sma
  17. Frodo and Sam had to climb high to destroy the ring!
  18. I actually think they need to use the lot where the Packard Place building is and Ink n Ivy. That’ll at least give them a College address.
  19. As a resident of Miami I am so happy about this! I was hoping for JetBlue but I’ll take anything to reduce the pricing even if it’s to FLL. As far as G4 hopefully this will cause them to eventually consider CLT once the new gates are built... IMO they are limiting themselves by flying out of Concord where they may not draw as many people from the greater metropolitan area. I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to suggest a lot people may not even know G4 flies out of Concord...
  20. Can someone explain that surface lot on the corner of the site??
