    Crescent Stonewall Station

    I'm enjoying seeing people wobble home on Friday and Saturday nights and for whatever reason that Buffalo Wild Wings across the street is regularly packed late at night.

    North Tryon (re)Development: 277 to Old Concord

    Maybe we can just start with repaving the parking lot. It's like driving on the surface of the moon.

    Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    I'm not on tapatalk and I don't have a Google phone. I have a Samsung phone. I saw the imgur link & I'm impressed with that man not flinching on the sidewalk.

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    While I try to find a way to appreciate what I can't control (until I become a billionaire & build my own), so much of the architectural ideas in this city reflect the above. People with big pockets & little imagination. Old southern men or at least old southern ideas that are too scared to expand & be truly cosmopolitan. It urks the f- outa me, but hopefully someone's grandchild is reading this board & will catch the hint & pass along the message before the next big building cycle begins.

    I can't see the .mov files - an Apple/QuickTime file format- posted, I can't see some Apple/iPhone specific emojis or the messaging functions they have like when people "like" a text or various animations. Those are the things I can't see and they are all developed by the Apple corporation. I cannot see various things developed by the Apple corporation on my Android phone.

    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    I admit I thought it was your evil twin writing that. I was a little confused.

    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    That's a bit extreme. There's an Indian festival and a Puerto Rican festival going on at this very moment. They may not be standing structures or strolling/shopping districts, but they're here and they happen annually. Pick one or both and go enjoy yourself. Indian festival is uptown & Puerto Rican is in Symphony Park where the Colombian festival was a few weeks ago. And I'm assuming that ballerina is in the city ballet. Claiming zero nightlife and dining is extreme as well. Yes, there's room for plenty more, but this isn't [insert name of cultureless tiny town here].

    Charlotte Off Topic

    I appreciate the response. I've never been at a loss for something to do here, but I was just wondering if there was something my mind couldn't conceive of as an activity. I've been to Nashville, but never Vegas. I'm assuming the strip is just clubs & bars?

    Yes. Just not apple specific media.

    Charlotte Off Topic

    I have a question and I hope everyone who has some insight will take the time to answer - even you lurkers out there. I've never lived anywhere but here, but most of my friends are from everywhere else. One of the most common dissatisfaction issues is "nothing to do". The most disgruntled person was from California, but chose to live near cows in Harrisburg. One friend originally from Charlotte who moved to Israel & NYC, etc. for a while moved back & said there's nothing there that's not here. What SPECIFICALLY are these things to do in other cities? Whenever I try to look things up, all I find are variations on what we already have (besides a beach, a casino, a turkish bath, and being a part of a live studio audience). I may have asked this before, but I've never received a specific answer from anyone anywhere. What did you/are you doing elsewhere that isn't offered in Charlotte? Especially things that you did/do on a regular basis that make it a good place to live. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE!

    The Good News Report

    MOAR!!!! I'm like a junkie just coming around here waiting for the next big announcement. I don't know what I'm going to do once development slows. I gotta get my fix, man.

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    I think given this time line, the area will look surprisingly urban. As we run out of space, development up there will be packed tighter and taller - homes, retail, and offices. They're already a little ahead with at least 4 two-story retail locations. Within 20 years, that area will be pleasantly unrecognizable.

    Misc. Uptown Projects/News

    I was thinking the same thing about the texture. It could use a good power wash, but it's a nice, unique building on its way to being somewhat of a historical treasure.

    Dimensional Place (Common Market South End site)

    I like that much better & vote to keep the structure permanently hosed down.
