  1. A+ tower. A+ location. Only wish it was taller than the DEC.
  2. It would be a fantastic spot for it. Gut the insides and throw on a few balconies and you've got the next hot spot.
  3. Does anyone know if an Atlanta version of Charlotte's UP? Atl doesn't seem active and I just moved here
  4. Again back to presenting the information in a way that is agreeable to the average intelligence (or better yet below average) person. All you need to do is have public support and things would go beautifully.
  5. I think urban planning/development intellectuals have to do a better job of marketing their ideas and concepts to people not in the field. There are great reasons why it's better to have a road diet in some cases but the avg person only sees it as the city taking lanes from the roads they drive on. Explain it. And explain it in a way that makes sense and can change preconceived notions.
  6. I'm kind of impressed that this community just kind of randomly agreed that blue font was the way we wanted to convey sarcasm or incincerity and everyone rolled with it.
  7. Unfortunately this is an issue in every city. No one would think less of Charlotte because of this experience in my opinion since it could happen anywhere. For the most part Charlotte's vagrants aren't as aggressive as other peer cities though. Also, sincerely thanks for making me google vituperating. I haven't straight up googled a word in a long time. Lol
  8. Man the Queen sure is pretty. Nice pics @KJHburg @gman430
  9. I couldn't care less if they want to keep the eyesore shell that's currently beside the convention center as long as they fix the street level, add retail, and build a 1000 room hotel that looks in place beside the DEC and new Duke energy plaza.
  10. I mean I know you probably know how to perfectly time pics for the best lighting but wow those are some gorgeous golden hours pics. Thanks for the continued sharing
  11. Looking good beside the DEC. Still wish it was taller though
  12. I'm no pro like some of you but here are some pics from yesterday.
  13. Huh...I guess I confidently misremembered it. Lol oops Here's the episode that had to do with Raleigh that they got wrong. https://twitter.com/RaleighGov/status/1448812229919444995?t=MPL54UhiLsDu1qFNE6LzsA&s=19
  14. Sometimes the government increasing inflation is necessary. That's one of the first things I learned in college macroeconomics. A global pandemic is probably the best example of when the government should do what they did with regards to "printing money."
  15. @Phillydog they didn't get it correct. No one knew it and the one person who tried to answer did guess Raleigh lmao. I actually saw that episode live. I was going to post here about it but forgot lol
  16. I mean that's kind of on brand for millennials and Charlotte in general right now especially that last sentence.
  17. Ummm so a building that's coming up on its 100th birthday is likely to get razed? That's criminal. Hopefully they'll as least try to save the facade or something.
  18. Not necessarily a good take on CLT but american dad brought up Charlotte in an episode I randomly came across.
  19. Nice pics! Could you link where you found them so we can find them too and credit where they're from?
  20. Love the slope. I wish it was just another 50-100 feet taller and this would be so perfect beside the former DEC.
  21. Is it possible for these parcels to be developed?
  22. Pretty cool. Throw in some high rise apartments and condos above the retail/entertainment spaces and I'd be sold.
