I still have not seen a conceptual drawing of the rail trail that passes thru the Convention Center... given the narrow  passageway  for the Blue Line, I'm at a loss on how the trail will go from Stonewall to MLK...

 

So on Charlotte Talks, Michael Smith said, "will go through the convention center."

Are we sure "through the convention center" doesn't just mean it ends at a sidewalk outside the doors on one side, and then inside there's like a carpet change and a couple signs, and then picks up again outside the doors on the other side? Because that would be pathetic and I could see it happening.

^^^ We should really do everything possible to make Uptown like this.

I think it's a bit of a pipe dream, but it can be done. It was posted on here a week or so ago that a lot of projects are being built with minimum parking requirements waived. Large buildings like hotels will inevitably continue to have parking included for the foreseeable future, which is honestly fine with me, I'd rather have decks concealed in or under structures than have blocks of buildings with no parking and then have a massive deck here or there messing up the cityscape. I think developers, especially residential are recognizing the unsightly nature of parking decks and are taking more steps than just screening like they had been a few years ago.

* blue font * Because incentives are being approved for WF to officially move headquarters to the current DEC, so DEC2 is growing taller to accommodate additional executives.

It makes sense to move Wells HQ to the QC.  But for private equity, SF isn’t a banking powerhouse.  Also, I guarantee that 90% of Wells’ employees in SF make less than $250k per year, which is nothing in SF.  If their salaries were dropped by 1/3, they’d fare much better in Charlotte, and the company would save a fortune on office space ($30/sf for QC space vs. $80-$100/sf in SF).

The upper echelon execs who want big city life could move to NY where Wells’ IB owns 750k sf of space at 30 HY.

Have permits been filed to begin foundation work for this building?   Work on this site seems sporadic, some days there is a lot of digging.  But, for the past week, it has been slow, I think some excavators have been removed.  

However, the hut remains untouched.

A message went out today that they will be doing more blasting on September 23rd.

I am pretty sure all the parking is in the garage behind on the College St side so not sure how much more they will go down.  Thanks @Hushpuppy321 for the commercial insight. I can tell you all about residential construction but not something this BIG.
