    Economic Development - Expansions and Relocations

    Personally I think The Observer is trash as is most old school print and broadcast outlets. BUT I have to say this piece is actually very good. It is well sourced with legitimate people and does not use fear tactics in the writing or verbiage chosen. It’s not loaded one way or the other. There seems to be some actual journalism here presented in a way to educate and inform. From breweries to the farm, Trump tariff war produces winners and losers in Charlotte Anyone want to speculate what the 4/5 projects JE Dunn has that need lots of steel??? [emoji848]

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    I’m so thankful we got this building even with out those spires. If we had not got 300 South Tyron in this cycle I think there is a VERY strong case to be made that the Vue is the last ‘quality’ project Charlotte got. Considering all the development we got that is not very good. Tyron Place has a chance and until Legacy has more details of the rest it does not count. That beige pyramid building does not count. Its crap balls disappointing for something of its height. It’s only redeeming qualities are its hight and the glass corners. Challenge if u want but deep down you know I’m correct.

    MLS in Charlotte?

    Tepper again mentioned 'bringing MLS here' in his press conference today. The context I took it as to mean to bring to BofA stadium with him as owner/major investor

    Crescent Stonewall Station

    Does this mean it can be disassembled just as quick and cheaply?

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

    Just more fantastic news out of the recent NC budget for transit. Get out and vote in November to throw the bums out! The State Maintenance Assistance Program, which provides funding for transit systems across the state, has been slashed by more than $8.5 million, as previously reported by the Triangle Business Journal, a sister publication of the Charlotte Business Journal. Of all agencies, Charlotte's funding was cut the most, representing a reduction of nearly $3.2 million between fiscal year 2019 and FY 2018, according to data from the N.C. Department of Transportation. The Charlotte Area Transit System said in a statement Tuesday that funds from SMAP were included in CATS' budget for fiscal 2019 that was approved by the Metropolitan Transit Commission in May and adopted in June. Following that approval, the agency was informed that those funds would be reduced by more than $3 million, or about 26%, from the year prior. Charlotte was allocated nearly $11.1 million in FY 2018 and has a little less than $7.9 million allocated for fiscal 2019. For CATS, FY 2019 is July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019.

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

  9. Needs to be 10 floors taller. Proportions look wrong in real life. I like it though.

    With this now happening those $700-900k townhomes across the street look like a good investment.

    Crescent Stonewall Station

    I heard they are letting people break their leases no penalty as they are very behind on opening all the amenities including the pool. I have been 2x now to the Whole Foods. My initial thought is it feels smaller than others I have been in. Idk if it is or not or if it’s just the lay out. Something just feels weird about it to me. I live uptown and shop at Publix south end. I don’t see that changing.

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    I count 27, 27 being the floor with the orange railing. Of course if they were to add the extra floors they did so in the fat part. Would have really done wonders for the proportions if they did that after the set back instead.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Business Insider had a recent article saying the 9 new gates CLT is building will allow AA to add 50 new flights which they want to do.
