    The Bad News Report

    Great, that earlier pic made my hungry for KK. I miss seeing the "Hot Now" red neon sign out front when driving by other locations in the a.m.

    The Bad News Report

    If we are supposed to be the home of KK, why are there only two (2) KK's inside the 485 beltway? Seems strange. Not really a food comparo, but my hometown of Cincy is home to Skyline Chili and if you Google map the area, there are over 40 locations. Do Charlotteans not like KK?

    History of Charlotte

    It's had to believe that 277 hasn't had any changes in 30 years.
  4. Maybe if they rethink the pyramid spire and top it off with something equivalent to the likes of 40 Wall St or even BofA Atlanta...would this help our poor retro 80's building? source: medium.com/Bank of America

    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    Not really "POTD" material but wasn't sure if it belonged here or in the "History of Charlotte" thread. (Mods relo as you wish) There are some great old street scenes of uptown when the 1970's series "Movin On" was filmed. I'm thinking maybe 73 or 74 as this was Thunder Road's debut but its cool to see clear film footage of the old Masonic Temple and other buildings along Tryon. bird to see It basically starts down on Carowinds Blvd showing the old Thunder Road rollercoaster but scroll to the 22:07 mark to see uptown.....enjoy!

    That '76 Lincoln Towncar has been parked there since I moved to 37th street back in 2009. As a kid in the 70's, our next-door neighbor had one of these and the car was so long it wouldn't fit in his garage so he just left the ass end hang out and would gently pull the garage door down on the trunk...too funny!!

    Great, now maybe they can focus on Sugar Creek.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    So wait.... Does anyone else find it "absolute lunacy" that the Monroe Bypass was started almost the exact same time that the Sugar Creek Grade separation started yet it is already open to traffic. I mean, that Sugar Creek bridge certainly can't stretch more than four city blocks and isn't the Monroe Bypass something like 8-14 miles long?? Somethings not adding up here.

    The RailYard SouthEnd

    Good read. As a kid, I was always fascinated by all of the funky screen shots they use to do on that series.

    Ascent Uptown - 33 stories (3rd and Poplar)

    ^OK, this is simply AWESOME!! This could technically be in the "Learning from other Places" thread. Imagine if the old Polk Bldg was transformed like this.

    Ascent Uptown - 33 stories (3rd and Poplar)

    What tower is that under construction? Will it take the record for height from the old BB&T tower?

    ^Guess CATS wanted to mimic our beloved water tower on 37th street as the I-Beam bridge spine structure continues to sport it's oxidized look.
  15. I agree 100% that the proportions are WAY off but..... that garage tho!
