  1. Target wouldn't go there when they already have the midtown store, but a Nordstrom Rack might be a decent tenant, honestly. They're big enough to take up one of the bigger spaces there, it's high-end enough that they could sell to the uptown crowd if they got the right merchandise mix in there, and the closest one is in Pineville.
  2. Because the typical non-luxury malls are dying. People don't go to them anymore.
  3. They can get all the retailers in there they want but unless they figure out a way to turn it inside-out to face the street, it's just a suburban shopping mall without a roof.
  4. It'll always be the Epicentre in my heart.
  5. Exactly right. There should be suburban hubs with necessary routes going into Uptown and others going to other parts of the city. Having a single hub in Uptown hurts the transit system and decreases usability for anyone who needs to go anywhere outside of Uptown, and if you ran routes into center city you'd still serve all the bus riders that go there.
  6. I haven't read the tree ordinance, but if there's not something in there requiring the saving of trees above a certain diameter (the one pictured would more than qualify), that's indefensible.
  7. No, that's about right. CCCP is useless and pointless, except to raise money for themselves.
  8. String Bean is good too, I'm excited for the pizza place. Sometimes guests at our AirBnB there ask for pizza recommendations and we just have to say "uhhh... there's a Pizza Hut by the highway..."
  9. Every single time I see that mid-engined Vette from afar I think "Sweet, an exotic supercar, I wonder what it is" and then it turns out to be that.
  10. I think WFAE should look to Seattle's KEXP for an example of how to do this. They put a coffee shop, record store, and their recording studio in an old warehouse space along with some living room spaces. https://www.google.com/maps/@47.622815,-122.3551017,3a,75y,20.72h,88.16t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sAF1QipNJ9mozEY54HnaKn76p5QVJb_QvHyM7ZrEPbyK3!2e10!3e11!7i8192!8i4096 Wouldn't have to be coffee necessarily, but something like that to draw people in.
  11. Oh, well...then I have no idea why it's so low. It's a bad look.
  12. And now we're down to like three decent quick lunch options in that part of Fourth Ward, including the Harris Teeter.
  13. Yeah, I don't think of Club Monaco as being preppy at all, they feel to me like more of a European middle-aged guy store to me. Charlotte doesn't really have that market. I think Tabor is fairly successful but they're a tiny store and can probably afford to cater to a smaller demographic.
  14. That's exactly right. "I don't have the money to be the sole financing on developing these properties I own, and nobody wants to partner with me right now because the land isn't valuable enough yet."
