Would be nice to spruce up the ground floor of those parking decks with retail or cafes.

A couple of them have plans for it in place, thankfully. The only hold up is Grubb/Charlotte Chamber.

I honestly have no idea what happened to the old thread. It's not hidden or moved anywhere I can find it (including the moderators' section). I've asked Neo to look into it. Thanks for creating this new thread in the meantime.

Thought I would share the opening of the closet Kimpton Hotel just 90 minutes away in the state's 4th largest city of Winston-Salem.  If you are familiar with the downtown area of the city, the hotel will be part of a mixed used complex in the former iconic RJ Reynolds building which opened in the late 1920's and was actually the proto-type for the Empire State Building in New York City which opened several years later.

Sorry everyone but it looks like the old thread is gone for good. :ph34r: It got deleted accidentally and apparently there is no recovery system for that. We've made some changes internally that will hopefully prevent it from happening in the future.

Had a later morning coffee meeting at RUSH in Brevard Court.  Took some pictures and video on my way there.  What's the point of all this crane porn without any sound?

Took a perspective shot through the trees.  Use your imagination for the finished product.  Will be a pretty scene during the warm months.

Question:

I just noticed this area off to the left.  "Rooftop" dining?

One more question:

I just noticed from @CarolinaCrown's photos that the lobby to the hotel is going to be MASSIVE.  Like 3 stories it looks like.  Has a final decision been made as to hotel branding at this spot?

I just noticed that beige strip.  I imagine that is a bike path?  If so, that's AWESOME that they separated it from the roadway as opposed to a narrow lane with a white line.

Nitpicking here:  But the design would be much more complete IMO if there were double facing light poles hitting the pedestrian path and the bike path.

Do you mean beyond the title of the thread and it being announced publicly that it's a Kimpton Hotel?

I was under the impression that a final decision hadn't been made yet.  Or maybe that's the Crescent Stonewall project?  In any event, things change over time.  Just asking is all.
