  1. I was going to say, this has to be an "designer" from Georgia or Tennessee. And, sure enough, Nashville...Tennessee. Build this crap in Nashville or Atlanta, GA. Get out of Charlotte.
  2. There were only 157 in all of metro Atlanta, GA?
  3. Also amazing......non-hub RDU #17 in the US
  4. Just wondering about changing names for past transgressions... Imagine seeing things named for homophobes like Jerry Falwell and Malcolm X.
  5. From Charlotte and how much development has taken place in the South End since the opening of the Lynx line. https://www.wcnc.com/article/news/community/development-reshaping-lower-south-end-charlotte/275-929acff1-67d7-4a22-8ff3-121b277a8045
  6. "The cities couldn't be more different in density"? Seriously? 3000 vs. 3500? Also, look at the MSA's -- those densities couldn't be more different. The Atlanta, GA MSA density is 708; the Charlotte MSA is 889. I guess, according to the person who replied would have to say that Charlotte's MSA density is much higher and the MSA's couldn't be more different, i.e. the Atlanta, GA MSA is sprawl central. (PS the CSA is even more dismal for Atlanta, GA). Just saying...
  7. This is about RDU -- but you guys are AA experts -- what do you think RDU-LHR returning? AA says it will but they've delayed several times and it has people wondering. AA says with Apple and Google coming to the Triangle, it makes the flight even more attractive. Thanks! https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2021/06/30/rdu-to-london-nonstop-when-will-it-return.html
  8. Given the explosion of growth in NC of the Hispanic (specifically Mexican) population, frankly, I'm surprised that Aeromexico hasn't started service from NC (RDU or CLT) to MEX.
  9. Article from earlier this year. A couple of things... One, no "NC" after Charlotte. Second, and more important, an article that talks about how progressive and forward-thinking Charlotte is. Charlotte deserves more kudos for the work that people have, and are doing, to make Charlotte a truly great city. Charlotte doesn't get the attention it deserves, by far. https://www.fastcompany.com/90597128/charlotte-may-have-cracked-the-code-on-affordable-housing-heres-how?partner=rss&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=rss+fastcompany&utm_content=rss?cid=search
  10. We are talking about two different facts. Roads are widened because they become congested and you say that's because there's more demand for roads. True, but it's also true that development doesn't happen in the first place unless there's a way to access it. Not one city, town, settlement, or Sheetz on the planet was started without there being a way to get to it...by footpath, cartpath, boat, railroad, roadway, air landing strip, etc.. You actually think an office park is built in the middle of a forest miles from a freeway and then they build the freeway because there's a need to get to
  11. Impressive. We were that close. Oh, and by the way, the Times used Raleigh with out "NC".
  12. Rule #1 of urban growth.....development FOLLOWS transportation. Why is this so hard for people to understand?
  13. Of course. Atlanta, Georgia-based news outlet.
  14. Interesting insight into CLT'S future. Is AA expanding domestic service to build capacity for future international service? https://simpleflying.com/american-hubs-strategy/amp/
