  1. Im going to open up an old wound but I gotta be me. Instead of of funding and building 795, 840, 74, 73 or 84 I think that the interstate designation for that convluted interstate from RAL to Norfolk; the state should have addresssed the high growth areas first. I summize the finding of these projects was a way to stick it to CLT for building light rail. Which light rail has been a catalyst for growth and actually a reason CLT is a legit GDP, pop growth, job creation juggernaught. If I'm wrong someone correct me. I actually could understand 74 if there was a numberesd spur to CLT, I-174, that ended in WILM or even dog-legged to the SC border. But we all know that is not the reality nor how this is going to end.
  2. This should be on a pedestal right smack in the middle of trade and tryon....roundabout....trafalger square style...
  3. Cool. About 30 years late but cool. Draw bridge obviously but I'm curious how high will it be. before the draw portion.
  4. Wish there was a huge plaza in front with maybe a fountain or statue.
  5. That looked awesome. SouthEnd is growing up....literally.
  6. I'm sooooo jealous of you guys. The city must feel alive with all of this activity.
  7. Did Kansas City last weekend and I can honestly say Charlotte feels bigger because of the presence of the buildings. But KC has that grit, jazz, food and so many early 20th century buildings that I wish Charlotte had. Yes I know KC was one of the largest cities in the country for a while. Of course I wore my all star game shirt and Panthers hat. Nothing but good remarks about your city.
  8. Wife and I did Kansas City MO last weekend and used the free streetcar(trolly) all weekend. It was nice to park the car for a couple days and roam around the city; mostly downtown districts.. This will be a great addition to an intergrated transit system.
  9. Resembles OKC skyline now minus a few building.
  10. I slightly agree with you but NC has to do what it can to ease the poaching SC is doing. i mean I get it; jobs for the people is the goal but at some point it has to end. Out in the midwest Missouri and Kansas had to do a cease fire because of the amount incentive money being thrown around was starting to harm much needed money for civic obligations. It seems SC is benefiting from the huge economic engine Charlotte is. When are the folks up in Raleigh going to capitalize on the gem Charlotte is as well.
  11. So the Charlotte region is only 1.8 million per the article....
  12. No photo but a comment. Flew in to CLT around 5 this morning; saw the skyline and it was stunning. You folks are lucky to see that skyline every dawn and twilight. It's not hyperbole when I say the scene just does something to you.
  13. Just completed a road trip from RDU to Boca Raton and back. Couple of comments and observations about road construction that may pertain to Charlotte. RDU new terminal or renovation looks great. We flew in from OKC and were surprised how the airport had changed from years ago. Next observation; TREES and more TREES. The drive from RDU to 95 we literally saw 10 buildings....Trees block all sight. Just like 85 and 77, folks driving thru have no idea you are supposed to be in an area with millions of people. Now I am not advocating the destruction of habitat for vain reasons but allowing drivers to see your city could possibly be free advertisement and also let folks know your region has energy. Especially when they see cranes. Just my opinion. Last observation in regards to the construction pic above; is that all Charlotte gets? Because from my eyes Jacksonville and Orlando are pouring prbably billions in to road infrastructure. Its impressive to see. Again one of those perception things. I do realize Charlotte has chosen to invest in mass transit and I applaud that but I would like to think a comprehensive plan for transit an roads could happen. I dont know maybe someone can answer that. Oh, I still dont get I-74. Will that connect to Charlotte metro cause I don't get why the signage does not mention Charlotte at the 95/74 interchange in Roberson county?
  14. Not surprised by any of this. I always will have a place in my heart for the boro. I met my wife there while we attended NCATSU. IMO the region is under appreciated. Jusy big enough to fulfill some city amenities but small enough to feel un-rushed; yes I made that up.....
