at least we don't have the flies like Ayers Rock LOL  I had to where a net when visiting there.

I hear the pyramid will be topped out in the next week! 

All the cranes are probably eating them.

Don't pity them if they're prepared. I'd have a lawn chair an a couple cans of my favorite beer in a yeti cooler ready for my daily wait to leave the garage. That or I'd just take the train. I like beer though.

Pity the visitor who gets trapped on the top level at rush hour. 

I agree.  I also think that garages and especially parking lots should be eliminated from Uptown and located exclusively outside of 277.  Shuttles can continuously go between the lots and Uptown.  

Those who live in big cities with mass transit have to walk or take a subway or bus from the train station to their office.  These lots, etc. are a waste of space.

Is there a comparably sized parking garage anywhere else in the country? 

The garage at CLT airport is 7000 spaces and holds all the rental cars as well as hourly.    In terms of one huge garage location think of this way if that much parking is not needed 30-40 years from now you can plow it over and build another tower there.

Thanks but I meant is there a parking garage this size in another downtown?

that would be a No.  the tallest garage is the BB&T Center garage but it hidden by the building and other buildings.    The garage at Gateway Center is the largest OPENED garage uptown it is a couple thousand spaces but wrap with condos and apartments all around it.

Im assuming, according to the original plans, the west facing side of the deck - facing the stadium will be hidden by retail and a residential tower?

to answer your question yes there will be buildings blocking this garage from all sides except Church St which will have some retail and from 277 straight on.  Here is the plat

So the retail is practically nonexistent compared to the old site plan? 

None of the retail has been removed. Theres probably about 40k so far.

The first picture was taken by the NFL’s Social Media team. The rest are mine.  You can definitely see progress on the pyramid.
