  1. Excited for this project, but feel it will accentuate the bookend nature of our skyline. DEC/620 on the south and BAC/Hearst to the north. Not necessarily a bad thing. I may be ready to see BAC finally lose its crown and watch CLT's new tallest rise somewhere in the middle.
  2. Curious... I'm sure it depends upon multiple factors, but how much influence (if any) would an anchor tenant have in this scenario regarding the building's final design? Agreed with the comment that I can't tell if I will love or hate this building based on the descriptions. Big thanks to all who share on this forum.
  3. The best thing I've read that unpacks the hypocrisy charge, courtesy of the Observer: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/opinion/editorials/article71899667.html
  4. Any guesses on when we'll see a crane(s) go up?!
  5. Man, I really liked the green and thought it would be a nice contrast with the surrounding buildings. Oh well... guess as long as it gets built I'll be happy.
  6. Apologies if I missed this, but does anyone have details on the development adjacent to Morehead Place, specifically the vacant lot at the corner bounded by Morehead and Royal Court? I understand construction of an office building is about to begin. Orange fencing is up and dirt has been turned towards the back of the lot.
  7. Big hiring news from Red Ventures. Looks like they're mainly after inside sales reps for their call center. Decent compensation for minimal-skilled workers. Still nice to see strong and sustained growth from one of the region's tech companies. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/article26959474.html
  8. Wow, what a unique and stunning addition to our skyline this will be! The website says construction will start in "late winter of 2015". This beauty will break ground sooner than that, right?
  9. Agreed these two buildings should go to make way for structures that will better utilize the space. I hate to hear a parking lot will take their place. In lieu of more surface lots/decks, folks that don't live in Plaza should just get a ride with Lyft or Uber, espeically if they're coming over to drink at one of the neighborhood bars. Veering off topic a bit, but still related to the best use of space in Plaza; my biggest wish for the neighborhood would be to doze everything in the Family Dollar shopping center and essentially turn that entire parcel into a Charlotte version of Dolores Park. A pipe dream I know, but wow would it add so much character to the area and create even more demand for urban-style retail and residential surrounding it.
  10. Those renderings make me cringe. Would loved to have seen something more in line with the Embassy Suites in downtown Denver here. http://embassysuites3.hilton.com/en/hotels/colorado/embassy-suites-denver-downtown-convention-center-DENESES/about/index.html
  11. Any ideas on how tall the crane is right now relative to the height of the finished building? From Plaza-Midwood, the crane looks as if SkyHouse is going to be a solid northward extension of the skyline.
  12. Anybody know what the former gas station across from Zada Jane's is being converted into?
  13. Maybe this is a topic for a totally separate thread, but I'm curious to hear thoughts on how strong downtown Raleigh will bounce back after the economy gets its footing again. It seems that momentum is a powerful force and a strong catalyst for development. Downtown had built some really positive momentum and quite a buzz over the last few years, but it seems this recession has all but killed that. Sure there are some bright spots to be noted; I'm not one of the naysayers. But there are also a lot of negatives and question marks in my mind. So has the recession ended downtown Raleigh's revitalization or was this only a temporary setback? I would really be interested in what others think about this.
  14. Funny, I thought the same thing when I read the article this morning. Looks to me like the main point of the article was to plug Solas.
  15. Any ideas on when the city plaza will be finished on F. Street? I'm assuming that Site 1 will have to be well underway before the plaza's comletion? I think I'm more impatient for this project than any other, as it will add so much to F. Street!
