    Charlotte Gateway Station and Railroad Improvements

    I read an observer article a couple of weekends that interviewed Lewis about the station and to paraphrase he said the contractor will have architectural freedom in designing the station.
  3. Since you cannot be bothered to actually look at the data.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    You are correct, here is the link to the history of the port and how it was moved to Wilmington. http://www.nchistoricsites.org/brunswic/brunswic.htm P.S. It's funny I got think link from you over a year ago!

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    Love me some speculation on speculation!!!

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    All I hope is that this tower gets built at the speculated height. So, "Bank Town" will have a new tallest by a utility provider and spur BoA to one up them.

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    To piggyback KJs post, 1,000,000sq/ft at 25k sq/ft floorplates is 40 stories. So, it's not difficult to see that many additional stories would be needed to accommodate the out of town jobs that will transfer and growth. If it's wishful thinking on my part (which there is) or logic, I can see this being a very tall building.

    The State of Higher Education in Charlotte

    5604 is pretty impressive, I would like to see the degree track of those students, I would be willing to wager that the majority are engineering majors.
  10. Thanks for the summary!

    1000 Room Convention Center Hotel

    As much as I love the Panthers I can't disagree with this idea more.

    1000 Room Convention Center Hotel

    Maybe we can name the 1000 room hotel "Quantity Inn".

    The city can't just change how the bed tax is spent, it is legally required to be spent on items that increase need rooms. In your idea the bed tax would have to be repealed and then recreated to be spend on another area. Which in my opinion would be a horrible idea. It would set a very bad precedent.
