  1. Pretty sure I saw one of the new streetcar vehicles running on the Blue Line last night near East/West.
  2. Charlotte Convention Center expansion: http://webcampub.multivista.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=aPublicWebcam.page&WebcamPublicPageUID=27F613D6-5FBA-406B-99D8-4F1414650DAF
  3. Looks like the convention center renovation had a cost-cutting change. Really liked the bridge cladding the original renderings had (screamed tvsdesign – they do great work). This new rendering doesn’t have as much allure on this side with the existing look. Any idea what happened @Tyree Ricardo? New: Original:
  4. What’s the purpose of this post? Any of our peer cities would be ecstatic to see this project under construction. Yes it has been slow, but it’s been mentioned time and time again: this is an intricate project, it has stalled in past forms, but the current form is actually moving forward. Some of the negativity on this site is exhausting. Love your city. There are exciting things happening.
  5. I submitted a request about it via the CLT+ app a month ago. Received a call back from CDOT that they would be replacing the wall but not the counter. Disappointing because I loved seeing the digital counter and it encouraged car-less travel. Looks like a car ran into it but not sure. Nothing has been cleaned up or replaced. If anyone else wants to voice their concern, use the CLT+ app or call 704-336-3891. Maybe if we all voice concern, we can get a nice thing back.
  6. I get it. I'm in Finance. It's Truist's tower come March. But, this is exactly the type of passive mentality that allows stuff to happen in our great city. There are measurements we as Charlotteans can take to make our concerns known. Didn't WeWork apply for larger signage than allowed or am I remembering incorrectly? I know someone did recently and it was granted. As already noted, no one raised their voice over the WeWork signage and now we have a poorly-aligned sign on a building that frames the view from Romare Bearden. Apathy is the worst thing our city could face for its future growth...
  7. I agree as well. And for what it is worth, I hyped up this project to everyone I know in the area. Love the idea of a charming alley between the two structures. Should have been. The retail is great and I am very appreciative of it, but we must hold developers to a higher standard. If we stop caring and stop speaking out (attending meetings, etc. - not complaining into the abyss), we will get more wasted development opportunities like this. I love our beautiful city and want it to continue growing, but with well-designed projects.
  8. This. Like others, I am very concerned about signage being added to the top of this iconic Charlotte building. It will surely ruin the aesthetic of Hearst's architecture. We need to make sure we don't roll over if this comes through rezoning and make our voices heard. I'll adjust to calling it Truist Center over time (even though I don't want to), but if Truist truly wants to make a good impression on the Queen City like they say, don't mess with the top of this tower.
  9. New DEC lights will hopefully be coming before the RNC. I know they were proposed for the 2020 budget.
  10. UP roll call I'll be there. Can't wait!
