  1. I didn’t realize this until yesterday, but Bobcat just recently reintroduced their compact tractor line in 2019 after having previously halted production. I also found out that they assemble those tractors at the Statesville plant, which before the reintroduction of the tractor line, was used to build auxiliary construction equipment such as light towers, compressors, and generators (note: they still build these items at the plant). The expansion is purportedly related to their grounds maintenance division, which includes the compact tractor line and will include up to 500k square feet o
  2. And home to a future WF Law School campus **I have no clue whether WFU plans to add a law school in Charlotte, but it wouldn’t surprise me** edit: ref to Desert Powers post above
  3. Yeah, I think they added the number of jobs announced and implied they were all corporate jobs. Lack of proofing I suspect. I’d like to see a big east coast plant for Tesla sitting right at the old Philip Morris site.
  4. Man I hope she becomes a regularly scheduled visitor. She is a beaut. Do you know why Qatar has been flying here lately? Are they considering doing regularly scheduled runs? BTW: QTR8198 is inbound from London Stansted
  5. ^^^Could be, but last time they were here they were using the cargo ramp if I am not mistaken. Also I believe their cargo flights are all numbered QR8xxx and all the flights here have been QR8xxx
  6. Do you know what QR has been doing here for the past couple of weeks? Are they doing testing or something?
  7. Qatar Airways 777s have been flying into Charlotte again. The flights from a few weeks ago were Ostend (Belgium)-Charlotte-Doha runs, and I thought they may just be pre-Valentines Day flower runs or something else as a just a special ad hoc charter. Well it appears they are back this week, with two London (Stanstead)-Charlotte-Luxembourg runs already, and maybe more to come if the rumor mill on A.net is to be believed. This makes me wonder if QR is doing test runs here before starting scheduled cargo services. I read somewhere that they did test flights to Ostend prior to startin
  8. So are they doing a full tear down or are they saving parts of the facade as it shows in the renderings?
  9. Looks like another one enroute today. Landing in less than an hour from Ostend-Bruges Int’l Belgium
  10. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/second-phase-of-centene-campus-expansion-which-called-for-third-clayton-office-tower-on-hold/article_ec9de5a1-3996-5083-90ee-1eb3c2117f82.amp.html Looks like Centene is halting further development of their St Louis area HQ campus. Just speculation, but I think there is a strong possibility that Centene moves its HQ here in the not too distant future.
  11. 100% Correct. For resident Charlotteans, this station is probably more important than Gateway. Needs to be treated as such.
  12. Agreed. The idea of crossing at grade is exceedingly dumb. Unless there is some future version of PTC that was capable of legit magic, this idea should be rejected immediately (and truthfully shouldn’t have been put on paper in the first place).
  13. Then Rock Hill might be your best bet. They have a couple of ILS approaches and one of the FlyCarolina locations is there as well. http://www.flycarolina.com/flight_school
  14. Concord might be your best bet. I think they actually have several different flight schools there.
  15. Yeah I don’t see much in the way of change. This city will committee, task force, and study an issue to death and still fail to take action on anything. I will say that Charlotte is great at creating white collar jobs, attracting hqs, and so forth. And the companies we do seem to have are often powerful and relatively important to the national economy (Honeywell, Truist, Duke, BofA). I will also say that I think we are heading in the right direction on Transit. But we really could use an injection of culture, art, historical preservation, high quality low-and mid-rise arch
