  1. https://www.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/news/2021/04/27/wells-fargo-ceo-was-asked-at-the-annual-meeting-wh.html Paywalled article but from what I can see in the preview the CEO of Wells really dodged questions about a move out of CA.
  2. This is just a crazy bad plan. That land is so valuable. They could build so many more affordable units in a good location somewhere else.
  3. I will admit, I don't know much about private equity firms but when they are involved, it seems many retailers get run into the ground. You have to wonder if Belk would have been better off on its own.
  4. These photos are amazing! It's not pretty but is definitely interesting to look at. I like the top 6 or 7 floors and all of the retail. The rest of the building looks like cheap painted EIFS.
  5. The Charlotte Moves Task Force is looking at something like what passed in Austin as a way forward. The referendum might include infrastructure other than transit.
  6. It seems incredibly costly to finish construction and then come back in a year or two to complete. Wouldn't they need to remove the elevator and put the crane back in? Would the crane be located in the street instead?
  7. Mecklenburg has a relatively small proportion of pre 1950 housing stock, almost 5% of the over 400,000 housing units. It's actually quite rare to live in something built before 1950. Anyway, I still believe preservation of this building is quite important and that it should be repurposed and not destroyed. Total housing units 454,104 +/-770 454,104 Built 1940 to 1949 9,344 +/-1,504 2.1% +/-0.3 Built 1939 or earlier 11,551 +/-1,447 2.5% +/-0.3
  8. The same argument to tear down Hall House is the same one that has been made for the past 60+ years when buildings were destroyed. It's old, it's dated, something modern will be so much better, etc. When does it stop?
  9. I hope the county commissioners squash this quickly. What I see is the private sector coming in and whining about the cost of renovating a historic structure. Same song we heard with the Polk building. Odell wants to honor history....blah blah blah "The intent is... to honor that legacy and celebrate that history but at the same time support the new residents,” said Brad Bartholomew of Odell
  10. Cool. What I meant was how the Hearst frontage on Tryon is anchored by a big tower at the terminus and has human scale storefronts lining it. So far, Legacy feels sterile in comparison.
  11. I was hoping for Hearst (Truist) Plaza part 2 at Legacy but so far that does not appear to be the plan.
  12. The red LED accent lighting on the Levine deck is spectacular.
  13. I thought I was going to hate this building but it's actually quite attractive. The windows and general symmetry of the building work well.
  14. This has zero to do with the election this year. Most of the planet is dealing with and reacting to this virus in a similar manner. Except the UK, they don't seem to know what they're doing!
  15. I believe it has 3 basement levels and a vault. They should be going down around 40' for at least a portion of the site.
