    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Any idea why they decided to put up those plastic posts to separate the express lanes? There are already a lot of them that are damaged and it hasn't opened yet. In Georgia the HOT lanes same to work just fine with just double white lines. I assume because there's a Toll By Mail option so people could shift in and out of traffic more often?

    Another bar/restaurant bites the dust

    Yeah, they often had live music in the rear courtyard and you could see people in the Condo building behind enjoying it on their balconies.

    Wasn't the mural a vinyl stick on that's just moving elsewhere?

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    Tried to explain to an out of town visitor (who had downloaded the RideCATS app!) how to figure out inbound and outbound for the Blue Line. It would make a lot more sense for CATS to change how the Lynx is annotated. Maybe "To UNC Charlotte, and To I-485" instead of inbound and outbound? Also told him that the bus timings on the app are spot on, but the Lynx is usually way off, for what it's worth.
  5. LOTS of people work at the airport as well. I take the Sprinter Bus pretty regularly to CLT and its 80% airport/airline staff. If you look at the development the airport has planned around the future transit station on Wilkinson you'll see the need for a station with or without the airport traveler traffic. Plus when uber/lyft go bust you'll still have a way to get to CLT...

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Some interesting stats. Look at CLT jump between local boardings and connections. Really shows how it works as an airport
  7. This kind of looks like a groundwater monitoring well? I'm assuming if its in SouthEnd, there's nasty stuff in the ground.

    Rock Bottom Brewery at 401 N Tryon is closing on March 25th. Charlotte's first brewpub. The food dropped off in recent years, but still sad to see them go.

    Charlotte Greenways and Trails

    And don't forget, as soon as the Carolina Theatre development finishes up, the Main Library work starts (hopefully) so they would end up making 6th one lane If you live uptown, or use the street grid north of the square often you realize how important it is to have 7th as a two way street.
  10. Agreed. There's a special place in the afterlife for the 'designers' of this and LU.... Go take a look at the Edition Times Square, a modern luxury hotel done well.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    They started the operation in September of 2018 and it's a fantastic service, great cars and great customer service. There are usually coupon codes floating around as well. The Charlotte facility (where you return the car) is on Yorkmont.
  12. Keep in mind that onsite renewables don't always generate that much energy. The Strata building in London has 3 wind turbines built into the top of the building. When they are running as they should, they produce enough energy to power all the lights in the egress stairs. And that's it, a little less than 8% of the building's energy usage or about 50 Mwh. Keep that in mind when wanting token renewables on the building. Better that they spend the money on the building envelope and systems to make the building as efficient as possible.

    Unified Development Ordinance

    Mitchell Silver, who was Raleigh Planning Director, and is now NYC Parks Commissioner was the Keynote Speaker at the UDO kickoff last year and he said you really face one decision moving forward: "Do you want to be a plan making city, or a deal making city?"

    Unified Development Ordinance

    Interesting that after working with the city and applauding the process, the developers want to change the height restrictions in TOD districts and bypass the planners and go straight to the council (something the UDO is actively trying to avoid happening in the first place)... Two letters, one from Crescent and one from the REIBC.
