    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Interesting and disappointing restrictions. I wonder how well they will be enforced though. Example I am thinking of from personal use is. I have flown CLT to DFW. Meet co-workers in the AMEX lounge their. Prepared for the meeting in the lounge then leave airport to go to said customer meeting before returning to fly home to CLT. This is common for us whether be AMEX lounge or not. Hope AMEX does not make this behavior an issue for us.

    Lot of empty space up in that. Can we make me a sweet condo out of all that? I'm not above living in a building I despise under the right internal conditions.

    Yup looks like crap. Thought would be more like the screening used on the decks at Gateway where not see so easily through to the ugly concrete.

    Spirit is trash. JetBlue tho should def increase at CLT. They should be the AirTran/Southwest of ATL to Delta here.

    CATS Long Term Transit Plan - Silver, Red, Airport Lines

    I think our 'big bang' is more in the 8-12 billion and DOES NOT include connections to South Park or Ballantyne

    Grand Bohemian Hotel – 15 Floors – 254 Rooms – Boutique Hotel

    Yup one floor and then the bell tower thing on the corner. They have also been refining the mock up of the facade over the last two weeks. It has gotten some more detail and some additional color. Great project indeed. I hope the plans still call for a bakery on the ground floor which would be icing on the cake for someone who lives on W Trade.

    ^ I was trying to stop being so negative on this tower, but then your excellent pictures have halted any movement in that direction for me. Also I’m back thinking the proportions are wrong. Reversing my opinion and post from 12 hours ago. Lol.

    My main issues with this tower are.... The material - Sandblasted concrete The color of the poor material choice - Beige The giant steps that leads to the entrance on S. Tryon - Destructive to pedestrian interaction and shows 1970's thinking How much of the poor material choice and how heavy it is at the top. - Over bearing in your face cheapness - My only hope is when they put the BofA signage up there it actually looks better and it might I could live with the sandblasted concrete if they chose a different color than beige, but they didn't, they went bland and sterile. Proportionally it turned out OK for me and only 3 months ago I was in fear it wouldn't. As for value and budge, I firmly believe for the same budget and requirements they had they could have designed something better.
