  1. It isn't uncommon for me to see 485 station and Sharon Road West station FULL when driving by in the morning around 830.
  2. My girlfriend's uncle and his boyfriend move to Greensboro from San Diego a few years ago. They said the same thing when they visited us.
  3. My bad. I was confusing Fort Worth with San Antonio. You are correct. I remember Charlotte being very close in population to Fort Worth.
  4. According to this article, we will surpass San Antonio by the end of 2017. I wonder if the city population will surpass it as well.
  5. I work in one of the Fairview Plaza buildings, so this would be literally right out my window. I love the density, but it will be a nightmare to park when that is going on. The parking deck is decently filled every day.
  6. I had gone back to the beginning of this thread and read through several pages. I thought it was funny that a lot of people had a problem with the name Time Warner Cable Arena. I moved here in 2013 and that is the only name I have known for it, up until Spectrum Center. I never thought it was a bad name. There also seemed to be a divide on whether or not changing the name would make any difference. Some thought it should come back to Charlotte, others didn't think it would matter and would be an insult to the Bobcats fans. I have never been to a game, but for those that have been to a game recently, does it seem like the team is better supported by fans? Starting 4-1 doesn't hurt either.
  7. Just throwing this out there. My girlfriend works at Carolina Place in one of the department stores. We also live in Pineville, so we go there frequently. The mall always seems to be busy to me. There are a few stores that have closed, but they seem to be replaced fairly quickly. You could make the argument that Barnes and Noble might be a draw, because it is the only mall in Charlotte with a B&N. I only mention it as a draw, because we have gone to a few events and book releases there. They draw decent crowds. In my unprofessional opinion, the mall seems to be doing fine and is usually busy. I agree that it is not very pedestrian friendly. My girlfriend walks to there from our apartment and the sidewalk situation is terrible. I definitely agree with the above improvements, but I don't get the sense that the mall is going downhill at all.
  8. Has it already been mentioned that 3 (unless I miscounted) current projects are building on top of existing buildings? Portman, Mint Museum Apartments, and 210 Trade. Just thought it was interesting.
  9. Just an observation this weekend from my family visiting from out of state. My sister, who lives outside of Pittsburgh, said several time that she was "blown away" but the cultural diversity in Charlotte. I guess she is used to each race sticking together, rather than mingling with each other. I had to agree with her, but I guess I have just gotten used to it.

  11. I don't wear hats, but what about Alexander Hats? http://www.alexanderhats.com/
  12. Not sure if I missed it, but does anyone know what each tower will be called? The crane says "SkyHouse Uptown", but the construction cam says "SkyHouse Charlotte".
  13. Video on the Observer's YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cw7HtWeCZp0
  14. I grew up a little over an hour west of Lancaster, PA, so I can agree with #4 (I think I only knew 1 person who was Jewish). As far as #6, I've seen many businesses in houses up in PA.
