  1. Great to see these empty spaces being filled soon. 1 N Church Street 2 N Tryon Street 3 S College Street
  2. It is small in size like Belmont or Mount Holly, but has the potential be to just as nice. I really enjoy seeing so many of the downtown areas around the region coming back to life.
  3. Restoration efforts in downtown Kings Mountain including updated streetscape. #1 - Former Imperial Theater conversion to lofts and retail. #2 - Former Griffin Drug store. #3 - New dining option 133 West. #4 - Former First National Bank. #5 - Part of the former Belk Department Store converted to events venue. #6 - Former 1949 Joy Movie Theater, now a performing arts center with plans for more restoration and expansion.
  4. Correction: Vela Longview is the Raleigh proposal; Vela Uptown is the Charlotte proposal.
  5. Has anyone seen this yet? Vela Longview Charlotte on the Levine Museum site. https://veladev.com/ Four projects planned in 4 cities - the planned tower for Raleigh looks great.
  6. You mean BELL UPTOWN CHARLOTTE - it's no longer called the ELEMENT UPTOWN.
  7. NCPA September 26, 2022 Yet another state has entered into a settlement agreement with Centene. The latest: Texas had entered into a $165.6 million settlement with Centene for overcharges to the state’s Medicaid program. This is the largest state settlement with Centene to date. This is on the heels of the announcement by the Washington state attorney general that Centene would pay the state $33.3 million for overcharging Medicaid. This happened while there is an ongoing battle between Washington’s Medicaid managed care pharmacy program and pharmacists over Medicaid dispensing fees that are well below the national average. Centene’s settlements with Texas and Washington state over fraudulent practices follow similar settlements with Mississippi, Kansas, New Hampshire, Ohio, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Illinois. Additionally, there are likely several unnamed states that have entered or will enter into a settlement agreement. To date, Centene has paid $475 million to states for Medicaid overcharges. In 2021, it was announced that Centene had put aside $1.25 billion for settlements with states. NCPA
  8. Charlotte Ledger had a headline that states adding lanes to I-77 could take until 2045 or later. How is Gaston County (pop ~230,000+ will get a 4th lane to I-85 while Mecklenburg with (1,000,000+) will have to wait for a 4th lane to I-77. Just build the damn toll lanes before I go crazy!
  9. Problems never seem to end for Centene: NCPA August 26, 2022 The Washington State Attorney General last week announced that Centene would pay the state a whopping $33.3 million for overcharging Medicaid. Attorney General Bob Ferguson called this Medicaid fraud recovery “the second-largest in state history.” The breakdown of settlement: $19 million to the state of Washington, $13.3 million for the federal portion for administration of state Medicaid program, and $1 million to the whistleblower. This happened while there is an ongoing battle between Washington’s Medicaid managed care pharmacy program and pharmacists over Medicaid dispensing fees that are well below the national average. Centene’s settlement with Washington state over fraudulent practices in Medicaid is far from its first. In the last two years, Centene has entered into similar settlements with Mississippi, Kansas, New Hampshire, Ohio, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Illinois. NCPA
  10. Like DMann said the banner has been there for a long time, but the letters on the construction office door (across Tryon from the project) has had the "Intercontinental Hotel" lettering removed. This was the tower I was most looking forward to seeing built. I do hope this project comes back to life, but I could see an Intercontinental as part of the LU project possibly if they still have an interest in CLT in the future.
  11. I noticed dirt moving at the corner of Trade and Caldwell across from the Hyatt House Hotel.
  12. Looks very nice. I hope the windows for Morton's are as inviting as the rendering appears. It is so bland and uninviting as it is now.
  13. Does anyone know what this work is about at the Carillon Tower entrance?
  14. Agreed. Also wish the building had been set back toward College Street (much like Truist). Such a great building but it is easily lost amongst the other towers. If it were anywhere else in the skyline, away from other buildings, it would look more amazing. Imagine the impact this building would make in other cities, yet here it is invisible from certain angles when looking at the skyline.
