Anyone seen the pyramid being lit or is it the magic of photo editing?

It’s definitely the lights from the crane. I was down there last night and that was the only angle that it looked lit from.  It does give us a little bit of an idea of what it will look like when it is lit for real though.

I'd argue this All Star Game that is upon us is MUCH more impactful and CLT is looking great for it.  LU, Ally, Stonewall in general, SouthEnd, FNB, Courthouse, Intercontinental, Market 42, B Street, SouthPark, etc.  I think these polo wearing suit and tie types will be like WTF is happening here and will ask all the right questions once this week passes to really get to understand CLT and maybe they would want to be in this market or expand here.  These folks coming for this game have a much more direct impact on keeping this momentum going vs. politicians, delegates and journalists of an RNC/DNC.

My only wish was that Trade St from Gateway to Spectrum was not in such horrible shape.  Sure the story is good why, but wish we could have tarped over this.  

So half standing skeleton structures like Ally and the dirt lot that is FNB will have more of an impact to a small sports ball crowd than another 18 months of progress and what promises to be the most entertaining and watched election cycle in American history?

I don’t know that I’d use entertaining, unless someone decides to challenge Herr Donald for his nomination.

wow I can't believe I am saying this that parking garage at Legacy looks even BIGGER from the drone shots of @gman430

Can't wait to go up there and take some photos from the 2nd largest parking garage in the Carolinas.

Every time I go to a Panthers game, I just ride the light rail. Park in the garage at the station. No problems at all.

 

If only everyone would think this way

Then getting a train back would be even more crappy.  They need to run them more frequently near events.

I wonder if this garage will help the parking situation during panthers games?!

Short answer: Yes, very much so.  Our stadium is unique for the NFL in that we don't have massive tailgating lots surrounding the stadium.  There are a lot of places to tailgate in surrounding areas, but not every out of town visitor is going to know how to navigate and find these.  As virtually every lot is getting gobbled up in close proximity to the stadium, this deck will provide an alternative option to the Mint.  Not everyone wants to tailgate (open lot) and proximity is key, especially with young kids or elderly folk.  As LU builds out it's phases, this deck will hopefully be surrounded by restaurants and shops, which will make it even more appealing to park at.

This.  I really hope this.  But it would be so Charlotte if they didn't.

The Mint Lot isn't probably long for this world, especially if a BB&T/SunTrust HQ happens at current duke, and if the panthers stay at the current site. Its too prime a location for 3/4 of a huge block with large street frontage to be tied up to a 6 story parking deck.

Nice to see them establish the future phases, even if only a tiny bit.

I suppose we can hope.

The first 3/4 of that video would have made a great proposal video for Amazon. It truly showcased Charlotte well.

Do y'all think there could be some condos in the residential building fronting the stadium? Couldn't they do a split of apartments and condos? It just seems so strange to have so much office and apartment growth and next to no condo growth Uptown.
