Rumor has it that a construction worker was found dead here Monday morning.  Apparent overdose is what I have been told. Haven't seen anything in the news about this though.

I don't mean this to sound as crude as it will, but an OD won't make the news. And unless it's dramatic, I doubt a construction accident would make the news, either.

Correct, there are probably a dozen or so OD's every week and in every part of Charlotte. It's too common place to make the news, especially these days.

I wonder if the LU2 Cantilever Top will be backlit somehow or if the Ally Sweatband top will be lit?  Hopefully both will add positively to Charlotte skyline light show

Pretty sure that is plastic yard fencing they got from Home Depot. It looks horrible. They put all that money in a building and finish it off like that.

Ding, Ding, Ding. I thought about this a lot over the last number of months. You nailed it . The design possibilities are endless. The taller and brighter, the better. Problem is the world has just changed for the time being. Real Estate taking a big hit when the world changes. Because of that , I would rather wait for the proper plan than settle for something less.

Thank you. And yes I agree this is a tough time for real estate overall. I was thinking a hotel of at least 500 rooms would be great seeing as though it’s right near the stadium and all of these new office buildings. It would cut down just a bit more on how many out of town people come and want to stay somewhere near the stadium to catch a game and wouldn’t have to drive and park anywhere so that would cut down on the amount of cars and parking spaces needed for events at BofA stadium.  I would want it to be at least 25 stories in height. So yeah I plan things in my head all the time lol.

I would imagine Legacy Union gets a hotel of at least 500 rooms, and 25 floors, so I don't think its just in your head.

Hopefully a Four Seasons, I feel that is the last luxury brand we are missing. 

Full Service Hyatt ( I would imagine uptown gets a 1000 room Hyatt Regency by 2025-26), and Leows will probably happen before a Four Seasons.

I didn’t realize Legacy 2 curves to match Hill street side. Makes me like the building even more. And makes it even stranger why they didn’t do it with Honeywell.

CUZ they decided 800 MORE parking spaces were more important :-(

Probably easier to curve a bullet than a parking deck.

I mean you could, but I'd imagine it'd just be much more inefficient. Curve a bullet, through movie magic all is possible.
