    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.
  3. 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 In your idea the bed tax would have to be repealed and then recreated to be spend on another area.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.

    Mercedes and up is the only cars I get hit by. Not getting tocuhed by a 2000 VW Passat.

    Charlotte Bike Sharing

    They still have to be registered, I think the state did this in response to so many people using them as "liquor cycles" and to gather more revenue.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    ^^^I'm not sure how they are going to do the pricing for 77, but the DC area tolls prices are demand based...

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Additionally, on 66 inside the beltway during rush hour, 6-10 and 3-7, I believe, single occupancy vehciles are not allowed. So you can't even ride by yourself!

    Where did you find the pay cut info? It's not in the linked article?

    Unified Development Ordinance

    If communities want to limit their density and control their direction of growth so be. Not every inch of the city needs density. There is plenty of room for everyone to grow their community in the direction they see fit.
