  1. You beat me to it. This looks amazing in real life. I always thought it was such a waste they never uplit the corner flairs but this is even better.
  2. Looks like this is finally getting under way. https://www.charlotteagenda.com/226420/finally-the-jackalope-jacks-site-in-elizabeth-will-get-new-life-as-offices-retail-and-restaurants/
  3. I wonder who will get their signage up first. This or Ally.
  4. Minor detail, but it looks like they added an LED outline to the very top of the crown. It was just the vertical blade things last night.
  5. On 77S by Tyvola this morning. A late 50s (I think) Chrysler Something.
  6. It’s off now but I glanced out the window about 15mins ago and did a double take. That is impressive. Very Tron / Bladerunneresque. In the ambient white, I’m convinced they could turn off every street light downtown and it’d be just as bright outside.
  7. I LOVE palms and their majestic and exotic air, and we’re literally jammed against a state that has a palm tree as part of its state flag, so it’s only natural for there to be some palm spill-over here. There are lots of pockets in town that have impressive palms (Westfield at Queens in MP is a great street to see how they can thrive) and there are nooks and crannies all over the city that have them. Being from the NE originally, I love seeing them outside and not exclusively in a mall or airport. If we had more, they wouldn’t be thought of as such outliers. There are plenty of non-native ornamental trees that also shouldn’t be here, but life finds a way (my favorite line from Jurassic Park) and whether we like it or not, humans are part of that, and if they can thrive here, then why not? Put me in the Pro column. And fwiw, there’s only one palm tree that’s native to CA. All the others were imported from Mexico, Europe, and the Middle East going back to the mid-1700s.
  8. I’m curious as well, but not surprised in the least. Ambitious plans and splashy renderings rarely turn out as promised. This is starting to sound like 1BAC that was going to have some really cool lighting or some other neat features (as noted by others here) then 2008 hit and it got dumbed down. Still a strong piece of work, but not fully realized. Lots of world-altering events happening so frequently recently to not have effects on these projects as they are in planning or progress. Like trying to thread a needle.
  9. Looks like it’s lost another 3’ since your last post. Stop posting about it!!!
  10. None of it makes any sense, especially if the added floor count is true. Why would Childress-Klein be beholden to Lincoln-Harris for any reason? Plus hasn’t this tower already been pre-sold? So the $675M purchase price now will deliver a smaller leasable product? It’s all weird.
  11. What do you expect from the Nickelback of restaurant groups?
  12. Yes!!! As soon as we saw that post yesterday we ordered lunch for four. Her personal story is one of the most uplifting I’ve ever heard. Good for them. They deserve it. The GFM is now up to almost $30K. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/charlottefive/article243667302.html
  13. No big loss in my book, but Wet Willy’s at the Music Factory is done. https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2020/06/17/wet-willies-bar-closes-at-music-factory-covid-19.html?iana=hpmvp_clt_news_headline
  14. Dang. Buffalo Exchange on Central is now closing for good. I've bought and sold stuff there, although not a ton. But it was cool that we had one here...
