Thanks! I assumed if he hadn't stealthily bought in town, that he might grab one of the penthouses there.  I just couldn't see Tepper doing the hotel thing as he doesn't seem the type.   I do hope he eventually has an exit plan to move full time to NC and let us have that tax money.  If he had a bad year and only got a lousy 5% return on his portfolio, it would still be like 33mil in NC income tax.  :-)  I googled the FL residency rules and it is 183 days a year.   

In fact, if I were the NC  governor, that would be a discussion point with Tepper when it comes time to pony up state tax money for the new stadium.   If you want state money, pay state income tax.  

Sounds like he's interested in taking more tax money out of N.C.  https://www.charlotteobserver.com/latest-news/article236655113.html

Panthers owner David Tepper “adored” the Rock Hill airport not far from the headquarters site, Hart said. Getting people to and from the site without getting clogged up at the airport in Charlotte was important.

“We’ll bring all these corporate HQs down there, bring the players and free agents and all the big shots down here, they can get to that airport really fast,” Hart said.

Thinking Tepper is going to take up residence in Charlotte is just as amusing as thinking we're gonna get a 1000+ footer aaaaaaany day now.

Someone should point him to the Agenda articles about us getting a Potbelly to try and woo him.

He did have a unit at the Vue but not sure if that is still the case. 

I heard he bought one of the penthouse units at 230 S Tryon Street.

The Cowboys have a golf course and  and driving range in Grapevine, TX, and looks like he's modeling things on The Star in Frisco, but in Rock Hill everything will be much closer.

Is it just me or does the camera angles showing the skyline at todays game on CBS seem to avoid showing Legacy and general view of the larger skyline?  I have seen a shot of Freemore and a western direction and a shot towards the Vue that way but not as many from corner of the stadium by the tracks that would show much more of the skyline.  Is it just CBS or is Fox doing that too?

What does the tv coverage of today's game have to with the "Panthers Facilities News"?

Maybe nothing but if there is limited shots of uptown skyline seems to be less of a benefit for it to be right uptown I guess.  For tv coverage and exposure.  Obviously for fans it is a big deal where the stadium is at.

I’m waiting for the RNC coverage.  It’s really going to showcase the QC.

Who was the genius who forgot to include that in the $75 million stadium upgrade package  for Richardson? 

Well the negotiations are coming around again. Perhaps that could be included along with some free in-stadium ad signage for the city that would be visible in the shot.

Something like this would do wonders for Uptown whether it's for BOAS or the Spectrum Center.

Sounds a lot like the Epicenter, but It has about 100k square feet less retail than the Epicenter does, it does have 1000 more parking spaces though and more office.

It's amazing how much the Epicentre sucks after being open for only like a decade.  Wouldn't surprise me one bit to see it torn down before it turns 20.

I think you'd be right if he was the GM, but the job of an owner can probably be done mostly remotely. Miami to Charlotte is only, what, like a 2-hour flight so he can pop in and out quickly if he needs to.

I love North Carolina.  I've lived here for 12 years, and I'll live here for at least 10 more, if not for the rest of my life.  However, I'm realistic.  If someone is insanely rich, they don't want to be here, as there are more glamorous places.  In this regard, I don't see him leaving a Miami mansion for Charlotte.  He also bought a mansion in the Hamptons in NY for $45m, which he razed to build a bigger one, so he basically paid $45m for the property.

My hope for Tepper is that he sets up a branch of his hedge fund in Charlotte and relocates admin, marketing, HR, Legal, accounting, etc.  to the QC.  If he does, hopefully, it will encourage other big funds to do the same.

I think the fact that you used to constantly reference NYC is the tell for why you can't imagine this.

Oh, I don’t know. He might buy the Biltmore House.

I never meant to imply he should sell all his residence and move full time to CLT.   FL zero income tax: lets say he had a good year and makes 10% income on stock sales and dividends....that's a cool $55+mil in taxes.  But that doesn't mean he won't build a 10 million dollar house to entertain on on Lake Wylie/Norman or uptown/southpark as a place to spend his < 49% time here.   

Guys like him don't want to be renting as its a 100% waste of money.  They want a ROI.   Spend money to make money.

“There are three markets that we’re looking at, that our expansion committee has been engaging: Charlotte, Las Vegas and Phoenix. It’s fair to say that Charlotte has done a lot of work to move their bid really to the front of the line,” Garber said.

Great news for the QC! 

I’d say it’s a done deal, they’re just waiting for the official announcement.

Did anyone see yesterday's Observer article about the Panthers development in Rock Hill?  It said they were looking at building several 20+ story buildings and a 30+ story one as well (think itw was 35 stories, 486 ft).  It would be the tallest building in SC.

And then it said the tallest building planned was 9 stories. The article was really unclear or I read it way too fast.

I was trying to read between the lines on this article too.  It originally made it sound like there was one, if not two high rises in the works.  Then, it went on to say something about height restrictions in Rock Hill, Tega Cay and such in that area from a local level.  Contradicting statements.  Maybe I'll need to read it over once more.

can someone link this article, because I haven't been able to find it.

I read it in the physical paper (I know...so 2005). I'll see if I can find it online...

I heard this story this morning on my news brief (thanks Google Home). They mentioned the story could be found in the Rock Hill Herald as well. I had better luck there (although that took some digging). The story looks basically the same, although I didn't read it word for word to compare.

      U-P once had a thread on this topic.  The last reply was in 2007. 
      Drove by yesterday and took a look at this park.  Very impressive.  Kudos to Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties (the park straddles the county line) for teaming up on this one.  The big Dollar Tree distribution center dominates the park.  There's plenty of land for expansion but I worry about access to I-85.

      There is some exiting news about some bike and ped improvement projects that might actually get built! Council decided to fund $2.3 million worth of projects around downtown that are detailed in the HJ article here. These projects are funded in part by the Broad Street TIF District and will will likely be implemented over the next 2-3 years. A pattern I've noticed is that they are partnering up with a lot of stormwater/drainage repairs as part of many of these projects. Kudos to the City for finding creative ways to combine standard repairs to make them better projects for everyone.
       
      The summary is as follows:
       
      North Church Street Streescape: This project will make the walk from the Marriott to Morgan Square much better. I'm not sure where they will find the room for these improvements without moving the curb into the street.
      -Cost: $546,654 -Add pedestrian-scale lighting (like you see on main street) -Add street trees -Add street furniture (benches, trashcans, planters)  
      Mary Black Rail Trail Extension: Connects the Rail Trail to the heart of downtown and to the Palmetto Trail to the north.
      -Cost $582,460 -Add pedestrian refuge island and crosswalks to Henry St Converse Street Cycle Track: Creates physically separated bike lanes behind on-street parking along the entire length of Converse Street. This might be the first cycle track in South Carolina, and among the first in the South
      Cost: $147,033 Main Street Improvements: Remove the curves on Main Street
      -Cost: $391,786 -Remove chicanes -Replace street trees -Install new lighting Wall Street "Festival Street" : The concept of a 'festival street' is used in many other places, notably another Wall Street in nearby Asheville. Here's a streetview so you can get a sense of the concept... just on a larger scale.
      -Cost $210,375 -add pavers the full length of Wall Street  
      Magnolia Street Sidewalk Improvements: Install new trees in tree wells by removing a few parking spaces
      Cost $158,929  
      Daniel Morgan Ave Road Diet: We've known this one has been in the works for a while. I'm glad it's finally being funded.
       
      -Cost: $190,417 -remove 2 travel lanes -Add Parking -Add bike lanes  
      St John Street Pedestrian Signal: This one would install a pedestrian-activated (HAWK) signal on St John St at Liberty Street. I'm not sure how this one will work, because the HAWK signal concept is intended for mid-block locations usully several hundred feet away from any intersection. But if they can figure out how to do it then it will be a great asset for that area.
      Cost: $75,000
