    History of Charlotte

    Is it Wayback Wednesday or Throwback Thursday anyway from the KJ vault of old photos. From the old concrete deck at Marshall Park the uptown skyline showing 3 of the 4 highest towers at the time in 1981. Not shown the 400 South Tryon Bldg then called Wachovia Center (white building with gold windows) Finest hotel in town the Radisson now the Omni. and the white pyramids of the Charlotte Civic Center now the Epicenter.

    615 South College (Portman Office Tower near Westin)

    I stand corrected only $590 a square foot still enough to SHATTER the price per sq foot record in uptown Charlotte for an office tower. http://www.costar.com/News/Article/$222-Million-Sale-of-Charlotte-Office-Tower-Sets-Market-Record/202079 Now if KJ could get that for my house per square foot I would hire an assistant to keep my UP posts flowing.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Based on what I have seen of the Monroe Bypass it looks on schedule as long parts of it are basically done now. The interchange and split in Stallings is the big project to be completed. But who knows NC DOT doesn't easily release delay notices.

    Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    A couple more from Nashville UP since Charlotte was brought up under Nashville Bits and Pieces. Someone said said something about Charlotte lacking history (which I admitted is correct) but that we have some history uptown but it is just overwhelmed with our huge tall buildings. I posted a picture of One Tryon Plaza, Latta Arcade and Iveys building. So these comments came in: ^Very nice... I hope those never get replaced, especially the Latta Arcade! What a gem!" "Charlotte is just an incredibly clean city. Even the historical buildings that were preserved don’t look historical. " It is nice to hear what others think of course but I know all this because I have been to every major city in the country and know while Charlotte is not perfect it is pretty spectacular in its own way.
