Those users have been right a lot of times though. Even citing the tenants over the past many years.  I thought the Bank of America rumors were bull for legacy union. But it was true.

Educated guesses aren’t too difficult to pull off.

That’s because certain users here claim to be in the know with future relocations but can only provide “soon” otherwise they’ll “get in trouble” when in reality all they have is early access to building permits for tenants they pull out of a very generalized hat  :rolleyes:

Actually it almost never comes from building permits, people just aren't that blatant anymore. Bank of America to legacy came from brokers talking too loudly. Almost all of it comes from that, people not keeping secrets.

And also tips. Theres so many things that could be posted on here, that haven't. I get so many tips.

Also, there are a couple of big things coming. There's enough corroborating chatter out there to confirm it. I don't know why they are taking their sweet ass time doing anything, but maybe with economic, and corona virus related fears, it might be a little bit longer. The media cycle seems laser focused on that.

A) By big things, are we talking WSJ and CNBC-covered events? 

B) International spotlight on Charlotte?

C) Skyline-changing events?

4) Nothing transformational, but rather continued job growth and healthy local economy stories?

Charlotte isn’t the only place that has seen a lull in activity. The only major excitement that we’ve had this year has only been Macy’s and the now defunct e-Bay deal.

I would say C, and 4.

So something explosive then.  

Depends on your perspective. I think it'll be transformative, some will complain that somehow its not transformative enough I'm sure.

North Carolina-based SD Holdings (Charlotte Biz Journals said they were headquartered in Charlotte), which operates 73 Sonic Drive-Ins in North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Alabama, has filed for Chapter 11 protection, Restaurant Business reports. The franchisee, which also runs 14 MOD Pizza locations and three Fuzzy Taco Shop restaurants, has accumulated $22.3 million in secured debt. 

Sonic Corp, which is owned by Inspire Brands, plans to acquire the 73 restaurants from SD Holdings.

Apparently Elon Musk is now shopping around (Amazon HQ2 style) for new production sites for the Tesla pickup and the Model Y.

https://www.motortrend.com/news/tesla-cybertruck-factory-search-model-y-plant/

There is no indication that his is looking around here, but I am sure the local ED folks will jump on the bandwagon. I can't help but think that since Elon is making the call that legal weed would be a significant advantage.

I mean it would be awesome to get it, but Musk himself stated that they are looking Central USA, we are most definitely not Central in any way I think of.

"Scouting locations for Cybertruck Gigafactory. Will be central USA" and that Tesla is planning "Model Y production for east coast too."

your probably correct, but its very vague journalism.

Well, it is possible that there is some truth to this rumor, I do not normally associate Nashville with Central USA but according to this article (with a source) Nashville is on the list https://www.axios.com/tesla-weighs-nashville-for-new-vehicle-factory-7fcdb7be-5ccb-4008-9793-3e98b767d58d.html
