  1. 300 South Tryon and Kimpton Hotel

    Logo of Barings on the backside being installed. Little surprised they picked the smaller side and not the left. Assuming one will be on the front too. Btw 10x zoom on iPhone X much better than 10x on the 7+
  2. 3rd Ward Midrise Projects

    I thought I remember reading somewhere a few years back this station was in Dukes 10-20 year plan to be moved.
  3. 300 South Tryon and Kimpton Hotel

    The rooftop place is closed on Sundays! WTF How are we not past this yet.
  4. Ascent Uptown - 33 stories (3rd and Poplar)

    Took the leasing tour here yesterday. They are 30% occupied and 45% leased. They are running 2 month free ‘special’ prorated over the term. I looked at the largest 1bdr and two 2 bdrs. With the special the 1bdr on 15th floor looking at the park and new 300 S Tryon and Duke was $2130 including trash and pest fee. The 2bdr on 15th floor similar view was $2600 all in. Looked at a 2bdr on 12th which is the first unit floor so looking at the roof somewhat and then into BBT stadium and BofA. That was the cheapest 2bdr at $2400. Amenities were stellar and views were awesome of course. Finishes in the units I was pleasantly surprised with. The pool though and pool area leaves a lot to be desired. It’s TINY. I knew was going to be small seeing all the pics online for sometime now, but seeing it in person it’s really really small. I use the pool in the summer a lot where I am so for me this would be a deal breaker. Over all though very nice. I’d definitely live there. For now though I’ll continue to pay my condo mortgage a block away and build equity with rising property value for less than those prices. [emoji16]
  5. Who knows what this is at the corner?
  6. Independence Corridor

    Only a small portion of all that land is going to that use. The other portion is not announced yet.
  7. Crescent Stonewall Station

    1 bed prices seem cheap to me for Uptown. You sure that is correct? Would expect $1700+
  8. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    More international (Europe) service is on the way. Guesses to which cities? Not so good news for Asia. Does not seem to have anything to do with runway length. https://www.forbes.com/sites/tedreed/2017/09/30/as-american-airlines-moves-boeing-767s-to-philly-charlotte-could-get-more-europe-flights/#54d7eb5127f3

    They have named this oversized sidewalk/planter thing 'Bearden Promenade' btw. I do think that is a nice touch and will be a nice stroll when complete.
  10. Looking at this last picture it just occurred to me this is NOT a steel constructed building. Not sure why I thought all taller/office buildings were steel, but clearly does not need to be cause. Does anyone know what goes into the decision of steel vs. concrete? cost/design/purpose?
  11. A second commercial airport for Charlotte?

    In 5.5 years and 70+ round trips 85% of which are peak business travel hours. I have never had an issue at CLT. I have not one negative memories of a long tarmac wait. 10/20 I would say is average. I don't consider that bad or aggravating. To say there is major congestion is an overstatement. PHL on the other hand where 60% of my trips are to/from I just curse the world.
  12. Ballantyne

    It got to be hell getting out of this mass of concrete at 5p. Build some decks and add more density? lightrail spur through south park perhaps? Aerial view of Ballantyne Corporate Park Larry Harwell Photography
  13. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    I have flown 6x LHR>CLT in the last 3 years and have never had more then 10 minutes to clear customs here in CLT. Quick and painless each time. I don't have checked bags though and am usually one of the first off the plane. Also you do NOT need to use the kiosks they have IF you fill out the customs card they hand out on the plane. Fill that out on board and then walk right to the agent. The kiosks do seem to slow down the process but even if you do have to stop at them would only be a matter of minutes extra not hours.
  14. Jonas Federal Courthouse Renovation

    Soooo boring. Where is parking for this thing?
  15. This is all truly bizarre. The website is like something made out of Geocities as well. Go figure. Also nothing like having to climb 30 steps to get to the entrance of the Tryon street side.
