  1. Charlotte’s burgeoning “Canyon of Heroes” developing. It’ll be great to see the Hornets’ parade for winning the NBA title in a few years.
  2. Here’s a photo of the start of the hat from an angle where the sun is shining through it. You can see shadows of the framing. No idea whether this is the finished product materials or just a base material!
  3. Sorry, it’s the crane being dismantled, not the elevator. That’s still intact. I’m with you on the concrete already looking ... unfinished. Maybe it is? Not sure. I do see what you mean.
  4. And a bonus shot of them dismantling the temporary construction elevator!
  5. Photos from today... they’ve finished the glass for the grand entrance on Tryon St, and it looks pretty nice. The photos may not show it as well, but in person the dark trim is a nice contrast to the lighter grid trim on the rest of the building.
  6. Some pics from the morning and afternoon walk today. You can see the cantilever on the hotel if you imagine all of that scaffolding gone! Also, they’re making some progress on the buildout from the Ally building that will be the terraces on floor 2.
  7. You’re welcome. Hopefully, the styrofoam snowstorm from the Grand Bohemian will be done by then.
  8. Here’s a pic I snapped of construction on the tracks near the Carillon Tower.
  9. A view from The Green... before it gets obscured by the new Duke building in the future! You can see the top floor and the taller windows for the executives. Too bad the windows on that floor have a seam in them! Looks like they’re using the regular windows and then have a 3-foot high second pane of glass.
  10. Two observations: 1) Is it me or does the hotel have an impossibly small footprint? It doesn’t seem like it’ll be more than one room wide, no? 2) I’ve noticed that the top floor of the Ally tower is taller than the rest... by a good 4-5 feet, I’d say. The executives will have some nice high ceilings in the penthouse!
  11. I definitely see it - from a walk by a little while ago. It also appeared there wasn’t anything leaning in the window, etc. Two off-tinted window panes just above the floor with no windows right now. Odd. See photo.
  12. A couple of photos of the top hat today, taken from Stonewall Station. I see the American flag flying from the elevator shaft, so we’re topped out now, I guess! I also spy the brackets for the Ally logo. I’m giving y’all a bonus: my artistic attempt at the Ally logo using iPhone editing. Better than a third grader? Debatable! lol
  13. Here’s a shot from the Stonewall light rail stop... it’s tall enough to be visible from there, after all.
  14. Ahh! Great catch. I actually looked up the Deufol name on the packaging and didn’t even notice the ThyssenKrupp label on the palette. As a former Otis employee, though, it saddens me to see that. lol
  15. Any idea what these things are? Space capsules? Taken through the portal on Tryon on another lunchtime walk today.
