The Related of Charlotte? Lol. Don’t give them that much credit.

They’ve done very well in this cycle between LH, the Capitol, and Rea Farms.  They blow all other Charlotte developers, including Crescent.

Hey i have an idea for the haters...  if you hate LU , then can you post sketches of what you think would fit well at this site? Post a sketch without pyramids, or non "80s" style and we can all rate your new designs for the "former observer site" ... :) lets go!

Dollar for dollar, they’ve not exceeded crescent. Until they sell 620 South Tryon in 2 quarters, but by then crescent will sell all 4 Novels, be completing Ally Center, and developing 4 new projects, only the Elizabeth one so far has been announced.

I did that already, showed how to fix it, most agreed.

Good point.  Then again, isn’t Crescent largely a residential developer?

At least ya'll are not getting the "amazing" development ATL is getting from Portman. I actually think LU looks good (except the sign).

Crescent develops based on what market demands. But way more goes into their plans than plugging in a tower. They get together and figure out what works in a community, and how they can affect positive change. Sure their stuff might end up getting VEd but they come up with awesome ideas and try their best to implement them. This is much more in line with Related than Lincoln Harris ever will be.

Lincoln Harris is absolutely incredible for pulling off Deloitte, BofA, Honeywell and I imagine more. All pretty much around the same time. That’s incredible. I expected it to drag way on for decades for this vision to pan out and it’s panning out at lightning speed.

Legacy Union is an extremely transformative time for uptown, I think, as it solidifies uptown as the employment hub of the region with as of now, a Fortune 24, Fortune 77 and Fortune 26 anchoring large towers with presumably more development imminent at this site. Hats off to Harris.

I don’t think another developer in this region could pull that off. 

I don’t agree with that last statement. With a Goldman Sachs backing any number of local developers and a ton of regional developer could pull this off. Crescent, Childress Klein and maybe Spectrum locally.

 

Now that Crescent is backed by Sumitomo they could have easily done it.

80% of it was they brought the space to market at just the right time and were already starting construction while still negotiating leases. The same way Bissel got all those people to Ballantyne. It wasn't because the corporate park was an amazing location with amazing amenities, it was because they could say, "you need 200k square feet? You can move in 6mo from today."

This is great news.  I hope that the facade is curved since the site seems to be.

Something like Foster’s Bow in Calgary would be nice.

I’m hoping to vacation in Calgary within a year!
