  1. Earth Fare just announced they are closing all stores as well. Thats a shame for new(er) one on S Orange.
  2. Went to the tiny "Kathi Rolls" (Indian street food) for lunch today. All I can say is WOW! Had the lamb/beef tikka roll and a side of beef keema loaded fries. MUST TRY! This place is fantastic despite its crappy location on Curry Ford rd between an Amscot & pawn shop. If your looking for something authentic, not too pricey in a local mom and pop place this is a must try. The owners were there and so inviting and excited to be serving this stuff.
  3. A friend of mine works the wedding reception/banquet side at the Orlando GB and they are all envious of what is coming to Charlotte. Give it time and let them finish. The details will make it. I watched them build this one in the early 2000s. It came together at the end - when it was labeled as a "WESTIN" Grand Bohemian.
  4. The Orlando Bohemian is nearly 20 years old and in need of a refresh.
  5. They could make a killing selling (not Hermes) belt buckles...
  6. As long as they don't ruin it by adding too much... Added a pic above.
  7. Not sure if this has been discussed anywhere but had the chance to try the newly opened "Cavo's" (original Graffiti) on Washington. Have to say their limited menu was fantastic and I'd definitely go back. Had a chicken cutlet sandwich and gravy fries. Simple but nailed it. Had I not been at a steakhouse the night before, I would have gone for one of their 3 steak sandwiches that looked amazing. Place was packed with high energy. Solid addition that will do well in TP (which needs it - BAD).
  8. Childress Klein & CGA Capital from Maryland just purchased this for $675 million with a long term lease back to Duke. Maybe now we will see final renderings! https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2019/12/23/sale-of-duke-energy-tower-under-construction-in.html?iana=hpmvp_clt_news_headline

    LR was part of the 2020 plan that got shot down in the late 90s running from Altamonte to I-drive. Would have been fantastic for the city had 1 member not voted against it. Federal money was secured but ultimately got taken away and given to Charlotte where their (ironically named LYNX) blue line was built and now is the center of a corporate explosion and billions of dollars of job producing activity. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/orl-asecroads21042102apr21-story.html
  10. I just posted this in another thread but here is the Observer link: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/development/article236813373.html
  11. Here it is! Corner of East/West & South: 23 story 385,000sf building with 11,000sf of retail. Sounds very similar to Lowes/Design Center Tower. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/development/article236813373.html
  12. Looking at it, I can't help but think it may one day transform into a robot and walk away! From Tom Hank's 80s movie "Big". Looks great at night, though.
  13. Valspar has an office presence not far from Lowes HQ in Mooresville. Not sure how big it is...
