    Lufthansa servers Charlotte and will be up start using A350 soon on all routes here. Charlotte metro has 194 German companies in it metro. Plus we get a lot of German compaies in upstate SC. We have 3 flights a day to Germany. Charlotte is in the process of planning for a 12,000 feet runway. Where does Raleigh stand on the number of German companies. It takes a lot of people to fill up a plane every day. Does Raleigh have that for everyday flights. AA has pull its fights to China out of Chicago and moved them to Dallas. It was late going into China, it has a hard time make their China route work. To get a far east aline to your airport on the east coast, you also need at less a 12,0000 feet runway. As it looks now, you will not see any far east airline coming to North Carolina any time soon. RDU has has come a long way to bring a nice airport, it will take time to add overseas fights. In 20 years you may not reconignize RDU because of growth.

    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    Maybe they like it that way. They get a good view of uptown.

    Triangle photo of the day

    Most of the old uptown building were small and of wood. Ivey's store is still there and a lot of 4 fourth was before 1900. These old buildings could not meet today's building codes. What dives the office towers in uptown is for office space. Also for high rise apartments for workers to live. I have see pictures of old downtown Charlotte and there were a lot of small shops. Also malls pull retail out of uptown. Charlotte has been under a downtown plan since the 1960s . The August 1965 report was the first glimpse Charlotteans got at an ambitious new plan for revitalizing uptown, then still known as downtown. The Odell Plan, as it would come to be known, was formally adopted in 1966, and it made audacious predictions: Downtown would have a sports stadium, a zoo, an underground street, hotels, museums, high-rise apartments, parks, a convention center and many more office towers. The plan might have looked like a fantasy when city leaders conceived it 50 years ago. But there was an urgency to be bold. Downtown was starting to decay fast, with businesses moving out and real estate values dropping. Suburban shopping centers and new housing developments pulled people away from downtown, and empty storefronts and blight were creeping in. In 1960 Charlotte's population was 201,564 people. I lived in Raleigh in 1965 and downtown Raleigh was not at the same state as Charlotte. It had Belks , places to eat and movie theaters https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/biz-columns-blogs/development/article73384557.html

    It is a way to waste good land by building too small. It not like the island of Hawaii that has a volcano that is adding land now. Vote in a city council that will zone for taller buildings.

    Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    I was in Kenya a few years ago, and I know some of them know where Charlotte is because they sent us a Religious banner to our church

    Affordable Housing in Charlotte

    I have been working with Habitat since 1978. I work on the build team at Habitat in Matthews. My church supports Matthews Habitat. Matthews Habitat has now built over 110 houses and Charlotte is way over a 1,000.

    For $22 Million if they do not build tall, they will loose money on this building to earn a good return on their investment.
