  1. 509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    DEC is pretty much a box. Until it gets to the handle
  2. 509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    I would like to see a cylindrical building personally. Something like the 2 buildings in the left here in Madrid. DEC is literally between the height of the two towers on the left. I doubt they'll build anything nearly the size of DEC. but I still like those designs
  3. New Hotels in/around Uptown

    Does it have to be on city owned land? I would rather the city partner with Lincoln Harris and build a large hotel tower at the corner of Stonewall/Tryon. I would imagine it would also be great for recruiting retail tenants for Lincoln Harris to have a 1000+ Convention hotel on site.
  4. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    I think Legacy, Duke & Ally will look great together at Stonewall & Tryon. They contrast great together. I think the better (In my mind) older rendering would've blended in with DEC.
  5. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    America has no world class cities then. Save NYC? Lol. Denver has 73,000 folks in "downtown" (not just the CBD) Denver, 700,000 city limits. Somewhere around 10% of the city population. That doesn't seem so off from Center City Charlotte population if we take into account the size of the metro area Just pointing out that I think most people in all US cities prefer to be in the 'burbs by large margins. But I agree with you about the wall. It's atrocious under any circumstance to have this wall along Stonewall in addition to the Westin which sucks along Stonewall and the convention Center.... 3 large city blocks worth of blank walls on a promising street is bull.
  6. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    I generally agree. But the only difference is I liked the old rendering much better. (I honestly have zero idea why people are so turned off by Legacy, but I like it a lot. And we don't know the rest of the site plan so it's pre-mature to write it off yet, especially when RDF hints a Harris Teeter, soft goods retailers, a Cesar's palace type look that we haven't seen yet)
  7. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    If Lincoln Harris can deliver on the soft goods, I'm not annoyed by Crescent'a lack of it. Though I do hope for a Rite-Aid or Walgreens (and shut down the one by 300 South Tryon...)
  8. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    RDF mentioned anchor tenant above the wall along Stonewall. I hope there's something besides restaraunts here. The articles pretty much exclusively talked about food joints. Not surprising. But 5 years of hearing about this project, sorta not up to hype. BOAT surpassed my standards thus far. Speed, scale, etc
  9. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    I don't dislike it. It would just be one of my least favorites in uptown. Behind the Wells Fargo buildings, 5/3, BOAT, etc
  10. The Good News Report

    Ally Bank, US Bank, Regions Bank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo towers all within a block. Bank Town we are....
  11. Dude. Forget political correcting things on issues we wont agree on. Lets argue about development and econonmic news instead!!
  12. Conceptual plans always are. I imagine it perfectly: Jayvee teases us for months how transformative it will be, such high quality, etc. They start building it, the bottom floor will go from supposed to be having nice local tenants lined up to a gym for the residents and maybe a small restaurant closed on Sunday's. The residential building will be no greater Presley Stonewall or any other midrise, the civic building gym or whatever will be no more active than the uncc building uptown (perpetually empty) then Jayvee will then decide and complain about the horrible qualities that they instead built and we will all decide to dislike it and later on will lament the loss of the big water feature uptown. (Which I'm just messing, btw) If the new park had a large water feature or a pond, I could somewhat stomach the loss of Marshall. Or if it were unique. Something special. Which again, I think unfitting Marshal would be great. But, I've already said that so.
  13. 210 Trade | EpiCentre

    Rocket fizz is amazing. A store uptown you can go into and enjoy looking around; Bad thing is I never buy from there.
  14. Charlotte Photo of the Day

    I know it wont happen, but I would be so satisfied if that parking let (of the little square parcel of that parking deck) were the same height as the Vue.
  15. Charlotte Weather

    Do you live in both Seattle or Charlotte or just Seattle now?
