    Downtown Greensboro is getting a Westin Hotel

    Interior renderings of the Westin Greensboro downtown. Source http://www.blackdog-studio.com/ontheboards/ More renderings
  2. "Ring of light" interesting feature in the Tanger Center https://www.greensboro.com/blogs/gotriad_extra/greensboro-s-tanger-center-project-adds-two-major-donations/article_4e71254f-e0da-595c-b96e-b24cc039d17d.html The Schiffman family donated $525,000 to naming rights at the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts. The Schiffman's "Ring of Light," which is made up of 60 3-foot by 12-foot illuminated pieces, will provide a timed ‘countdown’ to the start of every Tanger Center performance. It will be suspended over the seating area of the Kaplan Theater.
  3. Hampton Inn and Suites photo update
  4. Photo update. The Hyatt Place signage has been installed.
  5. I stopped by to take a few more photos
  6. "Wicked" part of inaugural Broadway season at the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts. Pretty cool to finally have Broadway shows downtown and the center will be getting shows it missed out on in the past due to the aging outdated War Memorial Auditorium at the coliseum. https://www.greensboro.com/blogs/gotriad_extra/wicked-part-of-inaugural-broadway-season-at-greensboro-s-tanger/article_92ec354d-fbd5-5009-ba42-c6c529a12f76.html

    Downtown Greensboro is getting a Westin Hotel

    It's not dead. That last report on the project indicated that the city needed to have a contract with the developer. Thats suppose to be ironed out this month or next month. Remember this is a complicated project because it involves the city with the deck that will be built underneath the hotel. There has been some site work over the past few weeks. Because of the nature of my job, I have access to the hotel blueprints (I have a copy) and I know what it looks like inside and outside and I can tell you its not dead. It's slow going yes and so was the performing arts center and Carroll at Bellemeade. Besides the city has to make it work. They are at the point of no return and has already invested millions into the project including the purchase of property. http://www.westingreensboro.com

    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    So true. I enjoyed my visit yesterday. I'm always either passing through or going to other parts of Charlotte. It was the first time in a long time since I have visited uptown. A lot of energy. There was a Latino festival going on. If I had more time I would have probably taken at least a hundred photos. There's just that much to see. You guys have great parks uptown and the modern architecture is unfounded anywhere else in NC. It looks great from a distance but you really appreciate it up close. Charlotte has changed dramatically since I was a student at UNC Charlotte 20 years ago and it has really changed since my sister attended Kings College in 1988. Charlotte back in 1988 Charlotte today

    I invaded Charlotte today lol. Didn't get to take a lot of pictures because I was there for a social event. Very impressed with what's going on there.
