  1. In all seriousness, why does Johnny Harris insist on such craptacular design for his projects? Does Lincoln Harris have a vendetta against good architecture or is it still 1990 at the company?? EDIT: Knowing that certain people read this forum, I'd like to tell them that they need do a better job design buildings. God help us if LH redevelops the OG Duke building.
  2. I will cry if it's not version 1, I just pray they have a change of heart. However, that is unlikely and I will forever mourn that design hahaha somewhat kidding. Being pragmatic, I'm looking forward to seeing the redesign, let's hope it's as good or better than V1. And I surely hope the 28 stories of parking is underground lol EDIT: seeing version 1 is going be like thinking you're getting a certain present for Christmas and then getting socks. Still good but a bit disappointing.
  3. I’ve always wanted to see a gray glassed building. Something a bit like the Comcast Center (in certain lights) and the Leadenhall Building. But knowing CLT, we’ll get blue
  4. Well I'm going to be disappointed if that's not built now! Why did they redesign it?

    I could see Paris as 4x/5x weekly in the winter, like US Airways did in 2011 (IIRC). I wonder if Madrid will be daily or not. If that comes to fruition, we will have the following year round flights: -London Heathrow x2 -Madrid -Frankfurt -Munich x2 (AA and Lufthansa) which would be awesome!

    Get ready for year-round Madrid! * I'm assuming "string" is intended to be strong.
  7. I've asked this before but to no avail, however I'm hoping someone knows as this thing gets closer to completion. What is this tower going to be called? BofA must want to have its own name.

  9. I can’t believe I’m saying this but the pyramid looks great! Good proportions. Whats the height again? 632’ or 650s’ ?

    ^ Why can't we have nice things? lol but seriously it doesn't seem that many big projects go to plan here: the blue line delay, the greenway fiasco and now this. I don't actually have a lot of confidence in CATS and I worry how things like this will affect the 'Big Bang' plan.
  11. Is it just the angle of the pyramid and the sun or are they painting/vanishing it? Also, full credit to Lewis Norman (@normthestorm5 on instagram) for this awesome picture, which shows my favourite view of LU! Has a great impact from the airport and looks really good too (since it's so far, not to beat a dead horse!):

    Sorry to hijack the thread but the always reliable for AA news JonNYC on twitter has said AA is going to launch more London Heathrow service for a while now. To add fuel to the fire, AA has freed up an A333, which only operates from CLT and PHL, so my guess is that we could be in line for more LHR service!! That or Philadelphia. It may not be the sexiest Euro destination or BA but having 3 daily flights to London would be awesome!

    ^The next phases of A North will include a check in area for non-AA domestic airlines (e.g. Delta), therefore it will become separate from the current terminal.
  14. It looks taller in that rendering but that’s probbaly just me. Its a shame that the very top will be set back and, based off the rendering, translucent; otherwise, it’s a very nice building! Can’t have it all though... sigh.

    ^ That and a terminal has its own check in area not just gates. So CLT will eventually have 2 terminals when the rest of A north is built with OAL check in
