2019 Predictions

Recommended Posts


Ok...will give this a go and try to avoid anything previously speculated.   My specificity should in no way be equated to any level of certainty.
1.  Market sell off continues for first quarter before rebounding.  Dow ends year modestly up.  No recession in 2019.
2. Hornets make playoffs before losing in first round in 5 games to Boston.
3. Charlotte gains another Fortune 500 company when Brighthouse makes the list.
4. Cambria Hotel proposed for Elizabeth Ave.
5. My puppy is finally potty trained.
6. It's discovered Amazon is selling all your conversations that Alexa has been recording to the NSA.
7. The first co-living project is proposed for Charlotte at Camp North End.
8. David Tepper announces formal intention to bid for MLS team.
9. Miller Services building is proposed for Charlotte's largest food hall.
10.  Another major tech company announces plans for Nashville office.  
11. Charlotte Stories scoops Charlotte Agenda on location of Shake Shacks first South End location (just kidding).
12. I scoop Charlotte Agenda by telling everyone location of Shake Shack will be Dimensional Place.
13.  Ally announces plans to formally relocate HQ to Charlotte from Detroit, giving us another F500 company.
14. Nikki Haley replaces Pence as Trump 2020 running mate 
15. Another regional bank is announced to anchor Uptown tower not previously rumored.
16. City formally abandons Phase 3 of Gold Line to focus on new streetcar line planning.
17. First phase of Strawn Apartments redevelopment is revealed, which is apartments and townhomes.  No timetable is set though.
18. Major Boston money manager announces new back office operations in Charlotte.
19. Loews hotel is proposed for Uptown as part of DEC2.
20. Steelers win the Superbowl.  Tepper is bitter and fires Rivera.

Foundry/cousins has turned down every shake shack type operation to date. They want their retail to be different, authentic. Though idealism does have a expiration date I guess.

Hmmm I like those.  Citibank could be that bank who knows.   Miller services bldg would be a GREAT food hall.   

Yea, seriously the best. I’d kill for that. Wish I had 15 million rotting in the bank.

KJ is predicting no recession and so does Dr John Connaughton of UNCC as noted in his economic forecast for 2019. 

Hope your right. Markets already lost 20% since the highs.

The Jaguars are commonly mentioned as the team most likely to move to London. Problem is they’d have to change their name to JAG-yoo-ahs.

Market could go down another 10% and the US economy never go into a recession. The EU, China, Japan, and the United States playing ZIRP and building balance sheets meant all that money had to go somewhere, to the tune of secular bull market valuations being out of whack for six years and creating really irrational prices; a nine year bull market can't - or at least shouldn't be able to - sustain a p/e ratio of 33 .

Granted, I've been under-invested for a few years at 65/35 equities to fixed income, so I've got that cognitive bias.  But, as someone who no longer tolerates young people being on my lawn nor clouds that have not yet been yelled at, this music feels really familiar, and if the S&P can winds its way down to 2250 or so I'm gonna start buying like it's my job.

 

Everything is slowing it seems. DOW had worst week since 2008. Don't want to digress from this threads development intentions. But, it's looking like movement on the development end next year will slow. Recession pace?  That's anybody's guess.

Googled “Are we headed to a recession ?” Concensus still seems to be “nope.”

The financial markets have experienced dizzying volatility through autumn, erasing the market’s gains for 2018. And now, a new poll shows that nearly half of 212 corporate chief financial officers predict that the U.S. economy will fall into recession in 2019.

      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.
