Looks like Uptown Cabaret is, in fact, revovating. Refer to the other threads for all the puns and entendres. I won't comment on the pink tower.

I agree about that building. It is a forgettable building in many ways, but when you actually take notice, it is a nice little building a stone's throw from T&T.

At one time CATS was looking at making that their new HQ...but never got a good deal on it....so it continues to sit empty.

It used to be the HQ for Home Federal Savings and Loan....some people might remember their TV commercials with Joe King. In 1998 they were bought out by First Charter. The building was vacated in 1999 and is currently owned by Duvall Investment Group.

Nice pics.  What's going on with the old Carolina Theater storefront?  Are there plans to build a new building behind that facade?

Endless ones. Unfortunately they never seem to get implemented.
