  1. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    I have an uneasy feeling that they might have pushed out a "patch"/fix to the controllers for the BLE opening and did not test it properly. That, or they were hacked
  2. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    A+ on changing the subject to the son...
  3. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    Classy! Are you going to dance on his grave as well?
  4. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    Grubb is looking for "Sr Development-Construction Accountant/Corporate Controller" -- http://grubbproperties.applicantstack.com/x/detail/a2252gice5m1 I really hope this is a sign that they are preparing to actually do something useful with the land that they've been sitting on for 10+ years...
  5. Charlotte Bike Sharing

    Definitely agree on "people parking like a**holes" part!
  6. Lynx Silver Line

    I will add the 2 alignment maps of the Silver Line for reference... First from CATS, the second from Charlotte Observer. ( I like the Observer one because the greenway trails are more visible)
  7. Myers Park / Eastover Projects

    I gotta say the Starbucks/Aix en Provence lot is a cluster! People park their huge ass SUV right in front of the door to Aix en Provence... "I'm just running in to pickup my coffee"
  8. That is correct, the existing freight tracks remain in place.
  9. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Yes there are plans, start with the 2020 vision plan. The whole North side of I-277 (from I-77 to 74) is planned to be completely re-done. Even a possibility of a part of it being underground (that is just one option being studied).
  10. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    My comment on the smaller CTC is about ~5 after Gateway Station opens. I really do not see a big changes re CTC until 2030. But right around 2030 I think CATS will consider the option of shuttering the CTC and selling the land (just my speculation).
  11. The glass, that is already installed:
  12. Metropolitan, Midtown Redevelopment

    That is a great report, thanks for linking to it. That should be the standard. Show the people what the current zoning allows then show why the requested re-zoning will make the site better. After seeing those renderings, I would be sold...
  13. Illusion, that is how high the station platform is...
  14. First Ward Urban Village and Parks

    Damn, I just lost a $20 bet. I am glad to be proven wrong...
  15. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    It's 1/4 mile down Tryon form Tom Hunter and < 1/2 mile from the back of the complex. And all stations have bike racks so you could just take your bike as a way to get to the station and leave it locked at the station.
