  1. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    Love the color and design of these buildings. Wish we could see some more greens and glass in the skyline. Buildings look similar to SD in this picture. To keep it on topic, Tryon Place helps to keep with this theme.
  2. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    Wow it looks great. Everyone comments on Downtown Nashville construction, but this is really more impressive.
  3. Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    There aren't many locations immediately around the stadium, as the NFL wants Mint closed.
  4. First Ward Urban Village / North Tryon Vision Plan

    Nothing is that binary. "Not needing a publicly funded park" is not accurately painting this situation. This city needs more help for the poor, but so does every other major city. This sounds like political even more grandstanding from the city council.
  5. Grand Bohemian Hotel – 15 Floors – 254 Rooms – Boutique Hotel

    Charlotte's weather is actually more stable than the similar latitude in the same climate zone in China (basically the mirror of our climate). The laurel oaks work well. Magnolias and Cypress can easily survive as well. Charlotte gets cold but not for more than 12 or so hours. It smells like a rag you used in high school to clean wait, nvm...
  6. Grand Bohemian Hotel – 15 Floors – 254 Rooms – Boutique Hotel

    I don't think hardiness was the issue. Those trees handle our winters well. I would love to replace them with live Oaks. We are able to grow those and they look great (think the exits around BOA Stadium).
  7. CATS Long Term Transit Plan - Silver, Red, Airport Lines

    Its all about the economy. When it begins to fall ridership will spike.
  8. Market 42 – 33 Floor Apartment Tower – Lennar does what Levine couldn't.

    There is no reason there couldn't be 2 Market Streets. Happens all of the time. Numbers would have to be substantially different, but its a different zip so it should be fine.
  9. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    More importantly 400 and downtown connector now take almost 2 hours to get from Dunwoody to Airport some afternoons after the toll lanes closed in 2013/14. Plus with development around the stations in Sandy Springs, Medical Center and Dunwoody, it makes sense to use the decks and trains. No worry to fret in Charlotte. The decks are proactive, they dont NEED to be full.
  10. FNB Tower 401 S Graham St

    I would love this deck to be wrapped in street facing retail. The old duke energy building is a great future opportunity. I wish that transformer yard would get moved, becoming quite an eyesore.
  11. Not always true...Levine. Public-private is much more stable, can be developed in less desirable areas and have higher build quality.
  12. CATS Long Term Transit Plan - Silver, Red, Airport Lines

    Wake is geographically much larger than Meck. Population is nearly the same. Similar to Fulton vs Gwinnett in GA.
  13. CATS Long Term Transit Plan - Silver, Red, Airport Lines

    Atlanta is much more than 5million. The republican hold on the state government will fade eventually. Gov. Nathan Deal has been very good at delegating between the urban and rural areas, especially with striking religious liberty bills. The state government is starting to realize the need for transit and I think is actually the only thing the state is more progressive than NC.
  14. Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    How is that relevant to anything on this board? UNSUBSCRIBE.
  15. Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    I'm sure someone in the NEW YORK FORUM could figure that out for you.
