    Charlotte MLB Team Speculation

    Its been discussed pretty heavily. A lot of people seem to think that it could go where the current Knight's stadium is located. I don't see how that could fit/work, but it would immediately be a top tier ballpark in the Nation if it could happen. Another suggestion has been that it could go where Carolina Pipe sits currently, if they decide to relocate. You could put it our in the Carowinds, Fort Mill area (Yuck). If the Panthers and Tepper DO decide to pack up and move to SC, you could knock over BoFA stadium and have a baseball park there. My favorite idea is to put it where the Brookhill housing development is currently. Those need to be demolished ASAP and I think a Ballpark would fit there perfectly - its close to the highway (and may incentivize the building of ramps onto 77N from Remount and onto Remount from 77S, which is needed), walking distance to the light rail, and the area around Tryon, Dunavant, and Distribution could be redeveloped into an engaging space for nightlife/bars/restaurants. It could also lead to a revamp of Southside Park across the street.

    Drinking Beer in Charlotte

    The city hasn't put in sidewalks on the stretch from the Sugar Creek section to Divine Barrel/Bold Missy. You literally have to walk in the street while cars whizz by you. Its also a sketchy walk. While walking from 36th is further, definitely choose that option over the walk from Sugar Creek.

    Drinking Beer in Charlotte

    Went to 4001 Yancey today for the first time and will echo a lot of the sentiment in here already. The service was exceptional, our waitress knew her stuff. Beers came out very quickly even though it was mostly full of people. Beers were good and cold. We didn't get food as we had just eaten. The only issues I had with the place were 1) I had pretty much already had every beer they offer. At this point it is still mostly just the beers that are distributed pretty widely. 2) There were flies everywhere. I am not sure why. But we were shooing flies away from us the entire visit.

    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    I have no idea what they are doing, but I trust Common Market to do something awesome with it. The brick building to the left is all leased up (Zeppelin, Bang Bang, and Caliber Men's Grooming), so they don't have any of that space.

    The black brick going up on the backside is a nice touch.

    Spectrum SouthEnd Mixed Use Project S Tryon St.

    I wish they could find a way to have the courtyard open up and be more pedestrian friendly to Tryon. That strip of Carson gets no foot traffic as it is currently, and I feel like creating a pedestrian friendly Tryon-Camden corridor is in everyone's best interest. I imagine it would be more difficult to use the parcel efficiently if they pivot the layout though.

    Do we know what is expected to go here? Is it going to be an extension of the Sedgefield Shopping Center across the street? I know apartments are supposed to be developed on the backside . . .

    Design Center Tower - 25 Stories in South End

    I dont really have any idea where to put posts relating to this and the development up and down Tremont. They are putting some artwork on the backside of the Design Center which looks like it will be pretty sweet looking. I love the murals and public artwork that are popping up around Charlotte right now. I'm not sure that this building in particular needed a mural since it was already interesting and cool, but this will make it feel more lively.

    SouthEnd "Gold District"

    Spotted some dumpsters and fencing up outside the WePak building. It looks like we are kicking off demo here. This will hopefully be an awesome development and it should do wonders for the connectivity between Church and Mint st.

    Good New Restaurants

    Unfortunately, poor service has been my main criticism of all of the Bottle Cap restaurants. I have had awful service at Hot Taco, All-American, and Brazwells. I remember waiting 20 minutes for a beer at Hot Taco when it first opened and thinking it would get better with time. It hasn't. If you look at the reviews for any Bottle Cap restaurant, no matter how long they have been around, the drawback is going to be the service. It doesn't seem to be a priority for management.
