    Good New Restaurants

    ^Do you know if it was the new version?

    I'll admit it does look better the further out you zoom.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    yes and close off that area for street vendors and benches etc... I'd prefer just to close the street but I know how the city worships all streets. Even one's that cut through the middle of a new park.

    ^scrape that crap off although the bun review bothered me since you have to have a good bun. Maybe bring your own. Good science requires sacrifice.

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    To me density means places people live, eat and shop not office buildings. Charlotte is very sparse using that definition. FWIW: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_density

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    V1 does look nice. To beat a dead horse. I thought there was prior discussion on this but I'm having a bad search day. What is the rumored parking solution?

    I just hope the parking garage is as nice as the one across the street. ;-(

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    ^Do they periodically take the DC3 up? Would like to see that.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Why do they need runway access? I don't think the nice one in Denver has it although there was an airport there. You can truck in planes. Most museum planes aren't going to fly in anyway. Although I would sure love to fly some of those suckers!
  12. ^it's not his place to recommend where funds come from is it? I see no hope of this happening in a red state until the pain is really, really serious. Like companies leaving in droves. Just like global warming. On top of that I cannot imagine it happening without federal $ - post 2021 at least. Nice to see someone is trying to plan for the future though.

    It seems like you could specify insurance requirements, capital on hand, 90% projects over least 5 years on time and some metric to measure customer satisfaction, quality control methods, construction technique experience, verification of Visa etc... Basically make sure your bidders are larger, professional outfits. Not to favor anyone specificly. These are probably dumb examples. But do you have some real examples of things you would want to specify but cannot? I don't doubt you're right just trying to wrap my head around it. The 3 bridge example you have sounds good. Are you saying that cannot be in the requirements?

    Another bar/restaurant bites the dust

    Hah, yeah. Commas can be priceless but they have always confused me. Grammer classes in high school were in a mobile home with poor AC. I think I slept through every one. :-). VA schools were fun for the race riots and beat each other with chains day or dealer day. Not much on education though. College CS curriculum didn't need much punctuation.

    There are ways to write a contract to shut out the riffraff from even bidding. Right?
