  1. Metropolitan, Midtown Redevelopment

    That looks great.
  2. Metropolitan, Midtown Redevelopment

    THat's great news.
  3. Charlotte Photo of the Day

    The photos are great. The Charlotte Transportation Center should be demolished. It's dark, dingy, and a waste of space. I took my son to the BK there a few times, and it was always full of shady people. It should be relocated to the periphery of Uptown.
  4. Myers Park / Eastover Projects

    I remember sitting in that Starbucks in Oct of 2008 when Wachovia failed. It was a crazy atmosphere.
  5. Thanks for all of the great photos. The windows look good. I'll be back in Charlotte for meetings soon. I look forward to seeing this.
  6. Crescent Stonewall Station

    This could have been better, but it still looks pretty good.
  7. Honestly, it's not the lack of shopping that precludes families from living Uptown. It's the schools. Schools in Myers Park, Ballantyne, Waxhaw, etc are really good. People who live there will never send their kids to inner city schools. I may get a flurry of responses calling me a d..ick, but it's true. Young couples with infants will live Uptown and then move to a better school district when their kids are older, but no one with school age kids will live there.
  8. I think that the show stopper will be the illuminated crown at night.
  9. Charlotte Photo of the Day

    So basically a glass box. Will there be stone (or stone-like concrete) at the street level? I like crowns, but PNC's tacked on, kids' party hat looks ridiculous. I'm glad that Charlotte's version of that tower will omit it.
  10. I think that This tower will look very impressive.
  11. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    Those crazy chicks are more representative of Atl than Clt. I never saw anyone loud or boisterous in SouthPark, Myers Park, Waxhaw, or Uptown, and thank god, there's no lunatics like that in Chapel Hill. The relative lack of lunatics in Charlotte is a major advantage over Atl. If I lived near any of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I'd move ASAP.
  12. Providence Road Development

    I agree. I really like LH's work. This is my old neighborhood. I lived there for three years until I got tired of the traffic and moved closer in. Otherwise, I loved the area and think this will be a great addition. I'd like to see LH take over the Lat Purser site on Providence and Newtown Rd by the entrance to Weddington Chase.
  13. Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    That was nice. My wife and I used to take our five year old there to get a snack when we rode the Lynx on the weekends.
  14. Dimensional Place (Common Market South End site)

    This building is going to be amazing.
