2019 Predictions

Recommended Posts


I like The KJ's predictions. The one I don't see happening is 15, but other than that it looks to be a good year for the region.

The real question is will the KJ increase production of his donuts in 2019 if his predictions hold true? LOL

I think they will announce some ACTUAL retail for 2019, as well as maybe a larger Fortune 50 company relocating to Charlotte, most likely from CA or the New England area.

My predictions are all Tepper related, based on his press conferences since taking ownership. 

1. MLS and Charlotte are back on track (although personally I would prefer MLB) to have a team play here in the near future. 

2. Tepper has spoken a lot about sports betting since the ruling came out. I can see him if NC law allows in the future pushing for a casino in the Charlotte area.

I could see 2 never happening.

Five reasonably reasonable predictions:

1) The nascent bear market leaves at least one building unfinished ala The Park



2) Any 10+ building without a shovel in the ground by January 31st is shelved till the next cycle;

3) Housing prices decline by at least 10% from 2018 peak;



4) Kemba Walker is signed and traded and the Hornets begin rebuild number 30;

5) The Monroe Bypass decimates businesses on old 74.

Five reasonably unreasonable predictions:

1) Krispy Kreme is spun off to Tim Horton's;

2) Wells Fargo relocates its HQ to Charlotte and rebrands itself as First Waldensia;

3) Legacy Union 1 is obscured by construction projects from all sides;

4) Roy Williams uses all his timeouts on his way to outsmarting Coach K in the ACC Championship game;

5) RobinHood is totes legit as an investment platform and announces plans to relocate from Menlo Park to Uptown, only to realize it can't pay 3% on money market deposits when ten year treasuries are paying 2.8%, relocates anyway and halfway builds a 90 story tower before pulling out.  Lincoln Harris promptly brands half-built tower Legacy Union 3.



Tyrone's (arms-length-transactions) Wishlist:

1) NASCAR's ratings decline to the point it is no longer televised.  Never again. Not ever;

2) Duke Power realizes it's done a half ass-job of building a flagship tower and doubles the number of floors for its new building;

3) The Rays surprise Montreal and Portland by announcing relocation plans for Charlotte and consolidating Levine land into a 30k seat stadium.  The Knights relocate to Tampa;

4) The Panthers trade Cam Newton for future draft picks and find a quarterback that can actually quarterback for two decades;

5) MJ trades Frank Kaminsky to Orlando for a Harry Potter wand and unlimited admissions to Animal Kingdom.



 

 

 

 

I see you are really bullish LOL

Think #2 is fair. Construction costs are starting get out of whack especially steel + concrete. Still looking for this bear market you speak of Charlotte RE.

In terms of new office buildings and rising construction prices means heavily anchored buildings will and can started or very well capitalized developers.  Honestly we don;t have a lot of spec buildings going up right now.    Believe it or not I think this development cycle has been very restrained.  Tenants are moving to better space and maximizing it thus higher rents may not raise their total costs of office space.

Since the end of WW2, the third year of the presidential cycle has been gangbusters for the stock market, particularly the first four months of the year.  That said,  a lot of sectors are already in bear market territory and it appears that defensive rotation is the only thing holding us at support.  No clue where we wind up the year but this bull market is a decade old and valuations have and continue to be out of whack with historical averages.

NASDAQ gets down 30% and I'll be totally in the pool on small cap tech and emerging markets, but we've gotta get some of these excesses corrected at some point; why not now?

Seems like the concensus calls for slower growth, in 2019, than torrid 2018, with a chance of recession, albeit nothing like pictures falling off the wall 2008. IMO, none of this portends contstruction grinding to a halt anytime soon.

Predictions:

1. The Office Boom continues with two more towers announced in uptown (around 400-500k sq feet each), two more larger projects in southend (around 200-300k) + some 100k size projects inner city neighborhoods (NoDa, Elizabeth,  Wesley Heights, Plaza Midwood)

2. NAI Tower in Elizabeth gets scrapped. 

3. Pappas sells its Scaleybark land to another local development company. 

4. Highrise residential grinds to a halt for 2019, Lennar is the last residential tower over 20 floors until 2020 (when I think Lincoln Harris announces two residential towers fronting the Panthers Stadium.)

5. Hotels pick up where residential left off, two new hotels announced in Uptown, one in Dilworth, three in SouthEnd.  

6. Lowes opens a Tech Office uptown. 

7. Theres a HUGE uptown shuffle. PWC, KPMG, Parker Poe, US Bank, AIG. Leaving some older buildings in the lurch.

8. Honeywell ends up in one of four buildings in Southend. Portman, Spectrum, or two not yet announced. (perhaps Cousins across the street from DFA or some partnership with RAM Realty at Design Center)

9. Duke increases the scope of their building to 45 floors. 

10. My wife and I move to North Carolina, no seriously anyone have some leads?

11. The tips of the exposed rebar get one year more rusty at Levine 1st Ward village. 

12. The Carolina Panthers buy Charlotte Pipe & Foundry who sells the land at a 5% discount because of extensive remediation, but it doesn't matter, they make a crap ton off the deal, and move operations to Monroe or Lumberton or somewhere else terrible.

13. Integral and Cousins wins 7th and Tryon. 

14. Lincoln Harris buys 526 South Church

15. Brooklyn Village stays dormant.

16. Uptown Cabaret and the land surrounding it is purchased for redevelopment.

17. 1440 South Tryon is purchased for redevelopment. 

18. Gold District finally gets a little love.

19. Novant does nothing in Elizabeth. 

20. Faison does nothing in Elizabeth, and the community gets a nice mud pit for their kids to play soccer in.

 

 

I've been waiting for those... :hi:

4.... (when I think Lincoln Harris announces two residential towers fronting the Panthers Stadium.)  Tell us moar!

9. Duke increases the scope of their building to 45 floors.   MOAR FLOORS!

11. The tips of the exposed rebar get one year more rusty at Levine 1st Ward village.  Good news: Max Max Fury Road 2 will begin principal photography in Levineland come 2020!

13. Integral and Cousins wins 7th and Tryon.  Whut? Nothing on the googlewebs.

14. Lincoln Harris buys 526 South Church, and the Duke Energy Deck What do they do with them? And it better not be build crap concrete 80's Dallas business park towers.

Brookyln Village is never getting built.  The damn picture on the website shows The Park in its original rendering FFS.

Sure. Dozen Donuts I have a connection @KJHburg. Also, I said announced. not necessarily built ;-)

Call me when DUK is over 9000.

I have to keep my mouth shut about DUK so as not to betray a confidence, but it's not out of bounds to ask why Duke isn't building a tower that can accommodate  both its present and future workforce as opposed to what appears to be the current piecemeal space solution.

      The search for this thread was prompted by the big announcement that Crescent Communities is being acquired by Sumitomo Forestry America, a subsidiary of a Japanese firm.
      There are many sides to this transaction:
      Sumitomo Forestry America will pump more capital and is more vertically integrated now to handle future expansion and also sees huge potential in Charlotte. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/latest-news/article209961859.html in June of 2009 Crescent Resources filed for bankruptcy protection -- in June of 2010 they emerged https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/stories/2010/06/14/story2.html Rebranded in 2013 to Crescent Communities. Is Crescent -- being intimately acquainted with the market -- trying to cash out as this development cycle is ending? Or worse -- Crescent sees similarities to 2008 in the economy in general and is cashing out? Lets try to stick in the "market analysis" and stay away from "doom and gloom" - "sky is falling" realm.
       
      I tried to find an existing thread for this, but the one I found is archived and not open for new posts... and it is from the "Great Recession" days.

      I couldn't find a thread for the River District so I made one. I happen to be really excited about the River District, Most U.S. Major cities are on a river. Charlotte is near a river but not on it and I think River District will fill that hole, Most cities that have a river have lots of shopping and dining options along the river.

      Since we have a Charlotte Greenways thread, I figured we should dedicate a thread to parks in general.
      So, in 2nd Ward topic @kermit brought up the ParkScore by the Trust for Public Land: http://parkscore.tpl.org/city.php?city=Charlotte
      I initially replied there, but this subject should be discussed in depth - and I could not find a thread that was dedicated to Parks overall (not just greenways). In my reply I compare it to Seattle - http://parkscore.tpl.org/city.php?city=Seattle
      The CharMeck Parks and Recreation website has details on all existing parks: https://www.mecknc.gov/ParkandRec/Parks/Pages/default.aspx

      Haven't seen any news articles on this yet but ZipCar will be expanding into Uptown/Southend this summer. The city is providing 6 on-street locations and Zipcar will be providing 6 off-street locations. This is a 2 year pilot after which the city will decide to make it permanent or not.
      Some sample Zipcar locations will be:
      -Romere Bearden Park
      -UNCC/First Ward Park
      -New Bern Station
      Charlotte has been really late to the game in getting a car sharing service but glad it is finally arriving. This will give those of us that live downtown and don't own a car another transportation option for those longer in-city trips where transit takes too long or isn't available.
      I think the city should also partner with Car2Go. I have used this service in DC before and it's a nice alternative to uber/lyft if you don't mind driving yourself...plus you can park wherever you want as long as it its a legal parking spot.
