Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. Developer bought an historic property knowing restrictions on development of historic properties Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Pilfered from Insta, something like this would work on the remaining parcels…but it’s probably too radical of a design for the suits in this town Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the staffing issues/quality of service is on purpose. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. KJ, I wanted to take a sec to thank you for taking us on these visual hikes. I moved away to MD 22 years ago, and while this forum has kept me up to date on what’s new and what’s controversial, your posts are always chock full of great location photos and interesting factoids and anecdotes. We all love the shiny new buildings, but these virtual/visual hikes are fun, too. Cheers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Why can’t Tepper put buildings along the perimeter of the stadium, with a roof capping the seating area…that would be unique Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Can vouch for the aquarium issue- Baltimore’s aquarium (where I live now) is used primarily by schools, attracting children and families from all social strata [emoji1308] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I sincerely hope they’re just taking their time coming up with a good looking screen for the deck. Maybe they could commission an artist to make the whole screen a wind sculpture that changes color and/or texture with the breeze…somebody hit up those wonderwall people (just maybe tone down the color on this one) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. If you’re going to dream, dream big! And especially when thinking about parks in the relative center of a boom town, think long term. The park in my hometown (Gypsy Hill Park, Staunton, VA) is probably larger than the rail yard, and has so many uses, it really is a jewel. There’s a miniature railroad that is a memory maker for kids of all ages- I imagine the current owners could do the same here on a much grander scale, charge a buck a ride and probably make a killing. Little league fields, a bandshell or two, ponds with ducks, playgrounds, a public pool- hell, Gypsy Hill has an 18-hole golf course, a winding road with a 10 mph speed limit so even drivers can enjoy the sights. Queens Park could be truly amazing if we dream big and think long term. Once the land is gone, it’s gone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. City cores should sponsor/commission graffiti art IMO. Non-sanctioned art should be evaluated by a panel and removed if deemed unworthy. Promote art! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah, and a public park on the roof of the convention center too…and any flat-roofed shorter building for that matter. Charlotte should try to become known for its green roofs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. https://www.instagram.com/p/CaKWJsqu5Qn/?utm_medium=copy_link 31 stories…looks pretty cool! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Charlotte the vacuum capital of USA! Charlotte Chamber of Commerce- new marketing slogan, “Charlotte sucks!”???? [emoji2957] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. How hard would it be to offer architectural power line poles? Different materials, shapes, designs. Or maybe allow artists to do their thing on the existing cheap wooden ones? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Complaining about government is a common theme from sea to shining sea. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
