So about that parking lot between Northwood Ravin and the Hilton Garden Inn/Hampton Inn... Who owns that? With everything else going on around it, how long before it's developed?

That parking lot is owned by the Convention Center and the city.

Adding to what enicideme said, I'm fairly sure the CC wants to hold on to that in case of a future expansion/annex, which is sort of overdue already since several conventions express interest in Charlotte but we just don't have their kind of space.

Two new pics from a couple of days ago, lots of movement! Both sites had those giant silver pipes delivered, what exactly is their purpose? Some type of drainage?

Same as a dry well on my property?

Kind of, except dry wells release slowly into the ground. Those pipes will release slowly into the city stormwater system (which eventually releases into little sugar creek, etc). In this region, the ground is so clay-ridden that it does a horrible job of soaking up extra water. Unfortunately that means paying for these huge stormwater control systems that are really expensive and no one realizes are there.

I know it's pretty dirty water (runoff from streets), but it's a shame much of the water couldn't be used for irrigation during dry spells.
