  1. SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    how many cars is that garage supposed to hold? its larger than the actual building. Building looks great but the garage is a quarter mile long
  2. I think it was the newer apt complex across the street from the baseball stadium, not the mint, and they are offering 2 months free rent already, im sure others are as well thats the only sign ive seen out of the sidewalk, thats not good.
  3. Westside/Beatties Ford/Biddleville/West End Projects

    I have been building in Smallwood for 2-3 years. It has really picked up in the past year with more builders unsung the area. Dirt was getting to expensive in villa heights Belmont etc. it’s hard now to find a deal in this area. New homes in the area are 450-550k now. In the past few months over watched people snap up all kinds of things in enderly Park on Tuckaseegee rd. There’s a few new builds over there. I believe that area will take off about 2 years from now as people wont be able to afford noda, villa heights, Belmont, Smallwood, biddleville but still want to be within 2 miles of downtown
  4. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    it will never be perfect or what we want, sounds like its more important to AA to have more gates and make more money, passengers will survive with narrow terminals that are updated and clean, I imagine it would be impossible to tear the roof off a entire terminal to raise it 15ft without having to abandon the terminal for 1-2 years. The gates are needed to bad so we will have to make do with whats there. Id rather have more flights direct from charlotte than have some fancy new wide terminal.
  5. 509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    hes the same guy that is calling the $1,000-$2,000 bonuses crumbs
  6. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    i think 3 cars is plenty, if more are ever needed in our lifetime, run the trains more frequently, id rather wait less time for a train even if it was crowded
  7. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Great find. That’s the same size of the area they have cleared. Thanks
  8. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Thanks. I haven’t seen anything either. Maybe you are correct.
  9. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Does anybody know if they are rebuilding/redesigning the 321/85 interchange? I drove through there this weekend from clt and headed to the mountains on 321 and noticed before you cross over 321 on 85 on the right they cleared a large area of trees. Appears it would be large enough to have vehicles come off 85 down a ramp and go directly N on 321 with no stoplight which would also take away a stoplight for vehicles looking to get on to 85 from 321. The interchange is a disaster on the weekends.
  10. Possibility of a New Panthers Stadium

    Why does everybody think it would go to SC if it moved? Why wouldnt it go up to Cabarraus county on some of the Speedway land, They have massive field of dirt parking for races, no idea of the acreage but its plenty big with parking all over the place, 85 has been widened, 485 is close by, Im not a fan of the Smith family being the majority owner though, they love govt money and will take as much as they want or threaten to move until they get what they want. If you remember, cant remember how long ago it was, maybe 10 years ago, Bruton threatened to move the speedway unless Cabarrus county let him build his drag strip and gave him more money. Nascar is dying and hurting bigly. The son screwed up the MLS bid. If the stadium had to move out of uptown, id prefer it to go to this site and not include the Smith family
  11. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    I-77N will still have 10years left on its toll lane contract number 2060. Better hope there’s flying cars by then.
  12. I’m hoping more development goes out Trade near JCSU and the Morehead and up Freedom Dr. There’s a lot of cheaper land over there and cheaper housing once renovated or built
  13. Mt Stonewall is racist though, never once did I even think that related to Stonewall Jackson in the 33 years Ive lived here, first time I heard it was 6 months or so ago when the news started rumbling about it. Maybe Im just an idiot or didnt think that far past just being a street name
  14. i havent bought a paper book in atleast 10 years
  15. The Bad News Report

    Agreed. The Smith family will milk the tax payers for every penny they can get to pay for the team,stadium, parking etc. Marcus wanted the city/county to give him everything for the team.
