    Not for long (well at least 2020).

    ctrl + alt + del was, in fact, not invented in NC but Florida.

    Kidd's Hill/Crabtree area development

    Then basically I don't understand why they are even developing this area. I really hope NC comes out on the better end of this.

    Isn't this a flood prone area?

    2035 Triangle Regional Transit Vision Plan

    As someone who lived in Vancouver, Durham-CH could learn some lessons from the city. F-ck up from the beginning and you are doomed, and you better integrate bus service/tram into the plan. NYC has done a pathetic job of this and the stress on the system is unbelievable. Don't boiler plate it as most of the systems in the US do. https://humantransit.org/2018/04/why-does-ridership-rise-or-fall-lessons-from-canada.html https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/transportation/seattle-struggles-with-growth-and-transit-while-vancouver-b-c-figured-it-out-years-ago/

    The State of Higher Education in Charlotte

    It should also be noted that the Duke Endowment is a constant annual cash flow for Duke and Davidson, and to a lesser extent JC Smith. I don't believe any other UNC institutions are major recipients/beneficiaries. I will say that the NCGA is not doing UNC institutions any favors in their fundraising efforts, especially out-of-state.

    2035 Triangle Regional Transit Vision Plan

    Good news for the short term but don't underestimate the NC Taliban - I am sure they will pull some more shenanigans (ala Catch-22). On an off-note, the leading stories on the N&O today were about gerrymandering and BBQ. What the hell happened to NC? Maybe they are priming for a merger with SC.

    The State of Higher Education in Charlotte

    The bulk of endowment money does not come from governmental sources, it comes from fundraising and management of the endowment investments.

    Good strategy - start as tall as possible with at least a 50% attrition rate built in. 20 stories will easily become 10.

    American Tobacco Historic District

    Looks like the area around the ATC is getting some more development. There is $100 million expansion project at the Venable Tech Center being proposed - the property was just sold a couple of weeks ago.
  13. How I miss the Triumph Center! Hopefully he gets this resurrected as I have waited over 10 years for this thing to rise out of the GSO. He has persistence, that's for sure.
  14. Whatever happened to Isaac Cain? That guy had vision.

    Apple appears to have pulled back on this entire project with no timeline established. The NC bubbas must have made some impression on them.
