  1. I guess it 's just the feel of it has always seemed very non-high rise to me, with the CPCC buildings, the newer mid rise stuff already there, and it being a narrow street. Elizabeth Ave seems very much like a "neighborhood mid rise commercial" street to me. I get that the location and block layout is perfect for it though.
  2. That's always seemed so weird to me. I can't imagine towers along that street.
  3. Man, CATS can't hire a competent rail-laying contractor to save their lives.
  4. I can't imagine the cost of buying up light rail right-of-way in a place like Dilworth.
  5. It's not even that, as I wouldn't really want to drink a Manhattan on a 95-degree day, it's just that those specific drinks are all terrible. Look at the ingredients they're using, 5 out of the 8 have straight up juice or Sprite in them!
  6. Plus that cocktail list... oof. What a group of terrible drinks.
  7. As an aside, I never understood the fascination with WeWork. At first I thought they leased all their space from landlords and made their money via subscribing workers, which seemed like kind of a new business model. Then I realized that they were the landlords and they weren't doing anything new at all, they were just marketing it better. Then after reading about Neumann it became clear "Oh, it's a scam company being run by an idiot monster that people are just flinging cash at." WeWork is just an office space leasing company, that's it. The problem is they were being run like a company that was offering some new service to people. They marketed themselves like a disruptor and assumed they'd have huge profits one day, when they weren't disrupting anything at all. Even ride-sharing and scooter companies are at least offering a new service and they're still losing money.
  8. Cool video showing the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle. This is akin to what we can expect if the elevated part of 277 is ever removed... https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/transportation/new-video-watch-the-alaskan-way-viaduct-come-down-in-6-1-2-minutes/?utm_source=marketingcloud&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Morning+Brief+9-24-19_9_24_2019&utm_term=Registered User
  9. And a trillion seconds is almost 32,000 years. It's really hard to understand the scale once you get above a million.
  10. Wow, I had no idea the lady who owned Dish also ran Tremont, Amos', and the Milestone once upon a time. Charlotte legend! Sounds like the new owner wants to keep it the same, hopeful it turns out that way.
  11. What's wrong with a train going 220mph through a middle school?
  12. Wow, that seems like a really great company! Love to see businesses like that invest in Charlotte, and 1,000 jobs is nothing to sneeze at. That's a good get for the city.
  13. But Noble Smoke isn't the same kind of bbq as Lexington, right? From what I understand Lexington is a very specific way of preparing pork shoulder only and Noble Smoke is more about southern bbq as a whole.
  14. When I moved away it was Nan & Byron's, which I actually liked quite a bit. What happened to it in the last few years?
