    I say it all the time. Better we have things residents can enjoy than visitors. Rays Splash Planet, Frazier Dog Park, Whole Foods, etc. Things visitors wouldn't care about but it's such a great asset to the locals. Obviously we have things and continue to make things visitors will enjoy, Epicenter, Legacy Union's retail portion stadiums, etc. But we can't dismiss our local things. Maybe you grew up in Charlotte too, but a field trip to the discovery place was one of my most fondest memories from when I was younger.

    210 Trade | EpiCentre

    If it wasn’t so controversial to downvote people these days, I would downvote the very mentioning of ever calling it the epic Center. I hate when people call it the epic center.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    It’s dreadful. There’s no way around it.

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    I’m beyond atheist and I like the damn churches. The one in dilworth, the other Catholic Church in dilworth that took in the Syrian refugees, 3 of them in uptown, one along morehead, the 2 along East Blvd. lots of our churches are great citizens and have beautiful structures. And atheist are just as giving, charitable. Both sides are derailing the topic with their own prejudices And in general I’m just annoyed there’s not more detail on the ground level yet :p I want to know the street level impact of what’s being built. Are we going to have a skyscraper in the middle of a field (literally) for a few years before we start filling in? That would be a travesty.

    The church is a beautiful Charlotte landmark.

    1000 Room Convention Center Hotel

    I would love an aquarium at the base. If Lincoln Harris has some good retail, Ally Tower had the rumored Apple store, the museums in the area including Nascar. 2 light rail stations, Whole Foods. JW Marriott, and others. Couple blocks from panthers and Romare. I mean, that would be a nice convention area. I just wish the city would partner with Lincoln Harris so we could have some Goldman dollars on top of city dollars

    Charlotte Tech News

    Does the fact its "just" a call center make it less significant? I mean. It's still sexy to say Apple has a presence in RDU. But it just doesn't seem the Raleigh posters on other websites and sorta on this one feel like it's such a huge deal being "just" a call center. I guess there is the intangible factor of being associated with Apple that would be a recruiting tool ? Not being negative. Just parsing through how big of a deal was that it needed to be included in this thread. I am very much a "Great State of Mecklenburg" type of guy. I love my state, but it doesn't flip the switch on my doomaflatchie when other cities in the state get a call center or an auto manufacturing plant, etc. Hell, I don't even care when Fort Mill gets relo's. I do agree that if Apple had an "HQ2" type in Raleigh, then I could see an impact on the entire state. But call center? Not sure it means anything to Mecklenburg.

    Some Raleigh posters are saying its just a call center, the TBJ is paywalled and I see no other articles. Can someone clarify if this is more than a call center?

    I don't think Raleigh's successes benefit CLT that much. And they honestly never really excite me. Apple would be sorta cool to be a nice bow on the tech industry they have. "Raleigh is a tech hub and the (regional) HQ of Apple" is cool. It's not as sexy as Oracle, redhat, etc. to those outside the industry. Sorta like how Wells and BofA is a nice crown jewel of our financial industry "Charlotte is a financial hub home to BofA and Wells Fargo" (and again. As great as Ally and other are, it's not as sexy as people outside the industry aren't too familiar with them on a national scale)

    An example of how grand a 1000 (1073) room hotel could be: I always admired Westin Atlanta

    Republican National Convention in Charlotte

    I hate the GOP, I hate trump. But I 100% hope we get it. The only downside to me is the local activist signing up people to vote GOP. But other than democracy, I’m ready to see the screen shots of CLT and hear trump say we are the most lovely place to have a convention and that our convention was the greatest convention you’ve ever seen. lol.

    Like I said. Every city has their sweet spot and ours is basically every angle escept the traditional eastern and western angles. Very impressive
