  1. History of Charlotte

    Build it on Levineland. Five bucks he doesn't notice.
  2. Belk Place: Carolina Theater and Hotel Intercontinental

    ^Or watch a famous comedian film their special in here.
  3. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    If you only knew how hard you made me laugh with this line. It's very true though. I'm gonna have to find a way to work this phrase into a conversation. Lol
  4. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    Jobs, this is jobs being brought into our city. Not nearby, not SC, not another peer city, but Charlotte. Jobs.
  5. True dat, I guess I meant more expensive than overseas.
  6. My question is not whether there are light rail tunnel but what kind of tunnel, cut and cover vs boring tunnel. Most mentioned above are of the boring tunnel type and are well documented to be expensive here in the US. Is the "old" way of doing things, cut and cover, an economically feasible option for Charlotte to bury a line. The only recent example I've found on this type of tunnel was Toronto. Some have been mentioning bridging, but what are the cost of that vs cut/cover?
  7. Is this extreme inflation in price for tunnels limited to boring type tunneling? Of which I believe all examples mentioned above are. Or, is cut and cover economically feasible if the only underground part is the straight shot up Stonewall (from articles I just read are limited to street row's)? Is the depth of bedrock too shallow? What's the cost for cut and cover vs bridging? One major downside to cut and cover is disruption to businesses. The articles aren't specific and I'm too tired to sift through the minute details (running on 1 hour sleep, rough day at work yesterday). Thanks if you can answer.
  8. The Good News Report

    Yeah to piggyback with personal experience, my wife and I sold our home (in the $200-250K range) and had 4 above asking offers the first day on the market. We closed a few weeks back. My realtor had no less than 4 conversations from out of state buyer agents. One was from Illinois. It's a hot market.
  9. NoDa (N Davidson St Arts District) Projects

    I shop the produce all the time at multiple FL's and HT's (Tega Cay, Rivergate, Tiny Teeter, Sandy Porter, Plaza). FL always is better produce on general items except at the affluent HT's. Lots of people dog the ole kitty, but my experience has been good 99% of the time vs other stores. But that been my experience, I realize others might be different.
  10. Charlotte Knights AAA Ballpark in Third Ward

    Fantastic read. If we got one that is the way to do it.
  11. NoDa (N Davidson St Arts District) Projects

    ^Exactly, I've never had an issue shopping at the ole kitty and have found everything I've needed there. They also have one of the most extensive beer selections I've seen in a Food Lion, though I can't ever share in that selection when I shop there. Plus the butchers are great (shout out to you Allie Cat).
  12. SouthEnd "Gold District"

    I have 30lbs that says otherwise.
  13. Charlotte Photo of the Day

    Jeez... Charlotte in her awkward teenage years. Good find tho!
  14. Grand Bohemian Hotel – 15 Floors – 254 Rooms – Boutique Hotel

    I for one am not a huge fan of Bradford pears (they split if improperly maintained and still do if you do so properly, they're a mess, they stink and they're only pretty once a year) and wouldn't mind if they were all cut down in the city (I'm talking to you my neighbor across the street). All jokes aside, I'd rather have usable green space than unusable space that is there just because it's green.
