    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    From near my residence on New Bern St 2 miles and change away. Looking good. Sorry for the fuzzy photo,

    Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    Blah....after seeing the renderings, Legacy Union doesn't look so bad after all. This looks another rectangular box building with no imagination. Oh well, at least the parking lot will gone (we hope this time).

    atlrvr is correct. That building is going to get demoed (eventually). I work in that building and I'm slated to be relocated to Univ City or somewhere Uptown late this year or early next year, wherever they can find me a cubicle. Preferably, I'd rather work remotely or Uptown since the drive from South End to Univ City is not a lot of fun.

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    As a Duke employee, when I saw that article on the Charlotte Observer blog, my thought was, "Oh boy." Then I thought about it some more and it became an LOL moment. It was such a huge deal to the company that we received an internal e-mail addressing what was posted on the Charlotte Observer. I always thought that lot had a chance of an office tower development, albeit very remotely. But I never thought my own company would purchase that parcel. It'll be interesting what becomes of it. In any case, you don't purchase 2.1 acres of land for $27.5 million in the central business district just to build a doggie park.

    Honestly, this design is......blah. Not very inspiring at all. My attitude is basically, meh, whatever. I would have loved the design to be a scaled down version of the old Wachovia tower that wasn't built (no not that 100+ story monstrosity that would have been an eyesore) but the art deco version. Well, I guess something is better than nothing.

    NC Civil Rights

    It gets attention, albeit fleeting. These people feel the only way they can be heard if everything else fails is violence and destruction as their last resort. Not saying that right, but that seems to be the only way their voices are heard by the powers that be (government).

    Kermit, you are absolutely correct on this point. All one must do is simply look at Baltimore, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Los Angeles (Rodney King), and so on.

    Museum Tower - 31 story Childress Klein Apartments

    hey gang, dx here. I haven't posted in quite a few years but have read the forum from time-to-time. Anyway, I work for Duke and got a company e-mail memo stating construction will begin April 16th. The tower crane will be erected from April 27 and May 4. Overhead safety protection will be installed between April 16 to May 15. So take it for what it's worth.
