    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    I’d bet these two pieces of info are not related. The 44 stories is maybe something next after 650 South Tryon now in permitting.

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    So their is a major issue with our ridership numbers. As most probably know CATS launched the mobile app where you can buy tickets online 8 months ago. The problem is this.... You buy the tickets and they never expire. The catch is you just never 'activate' them in the app. So what does this mean? Well it means just buy a ticket and only activate it if there is someone on the train checking. If not, well guess what you just got a free ride and you keep the tickets you bought. I am only human and yes I have done this a few times, please save the righteousness, thing is though I did not think was a big thing numbers wise until this past Saturday. I took train from uptown to NoDa and what do you know a group of folks through conversation doing the same thing! Well then. Few hours later time to go from NoDa to East/West for some Jennies. Well turns out a bf/gf couple sitting next to us on that trip also doing that. On my three trips Saturday no one was checking our trains. So takeaways... Time for CATS to find a better way to 1. measure ridership 2. capture more revenue. 3. update the eff'ing app

    I would like to reiterate their was a CBJ article 4/5 years ago where it mentioned that sub station was in a Duke plan to move in the 10-20 year time frame. If anyone knows how to search that you can or better yet get someone from Duke to comment on the issue now with updated information.

    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    Waste of money and pure propaganda. Take the money from moving this event from city to city and go build a word class high school.

    Looks like someone took the last space, the corner next to The Trust. Anyone know what it is? Work looks to be getting underway inside.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Count me as one for the CLT to Stockholm route. I would love this. Made my first trip in June through LHR. For the next 3-5 years I need to make quarterly trips for work and I would jump for joy if we had a direct flight.

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    So no light rail service all next weekend? First full weekend of UNCC back in session. I really trying to give them the benefit of the doubt with EVERYTHING and I don't want to see or care about any ridership numbers to 12 months after open, but damn do we really have a banana republic running things??? http://charlottenc.gov/cats/rail/Pages/track-work.aspx

    The RailYard SouthEnd

    I think this is the first official news on EY... Beacon Partners has announced Ernst & Young LLP, a professional services company that provides assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, as the first Railyard office tenant. They are leasing 30,487 square feet, which will occupy the fourth floor and a portion of the fifth floor

    Jonas Federal Courthouse Renovation

    Parking indeed. The little guardhouse from the back was picked up and moved this morning to where you see it here. General contractor signs are up in the back as well. This project is a moving.
