  1. Charlotte Photo of the Day

  2. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    They should make it 8 lanes for future growth.
  3. The Good News Report

    @kermit I guess I was just looking at a different source. That link I posted only shows about 34 counties losing population.
  4. The Good News Report

    What's the source for those quotes? I think less than 40 counties saw a decrease in population in that time frame. That's still not good but I'm pretty sure 48 isn't right. Do you have a source for that GDP thing too? Just curious because it seems off.
  5. New Hotels in/around Uptown

    1,000 rooms. Makes perfect sense.
  6. The Good News Report

    We keep talking about "when" this building cycle ends. It's still not showing slowdown in an areas so maybe we should start talking about "if it ends" instead.
  7. Having an unassuming glass box tower with basic accents is sometimes just as good as iconic buildings like DEC or BOA. Something around this height and style is great to make the skyline appear much larger and even emphasize the crowned skyscrapers more. However, this is a huge letdown considering the original renderings. At least something is going here soon and if the street level/retail/hotel are pretty solid, I'm still happy with this project overall.
  8. Is anyone pissed off that they're going to be repealing net neutrality against a literal supermajority of americans who support it? Anyone have any thoughts on the topic? I've already personally signed statements, sent in comments/complaints, and called my local house representative. They don't have any power over the FCC but once the skum known as ajit pai removes internet freedom, maybe they'll be inclined to do something with congressional legislation to protect the internet as a utility.
  9. Crescent Stonewall Station

    It would look so much better with just a little color on it. I used my expert photoshop skills to show what I mean:
  10. New Hotels in/around Uptown

    @KJHburg Great pics as usual! I want to sincerely thank you for all the update photos that you post regularly.
  11. Amazon HQ2

    That's quite an interesting speculation. Florida hasn't really been mentioned on here. I think it has as good of a chance as many other states but I can't imagine Amazon would take personal income tax into account very much if they even consider it at all. NC's corporate tax rate would be a big factor, however.
  12. Ascent Uptown - 33 stories (3rd and Poplar)

    I would love to see a bigger version somewhere Uptown. Something truly iconic.

  14. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    I have some friends who go to Clemson (sadly lol) and just like most others who aren't from the area, I've heard nothing but praise about CLT from them. "It's so clean/new/pretty." And this shot is more like what I saw most of during gameday. Source
  15. Charlotte area population statistics

    Unless something major changes, it'll probably be around what we've seen in the last 5 years. Probably around 2-3% per year for the next decade at least.
