2019 Predictions

Recommended Posts

I predict Lowes will Anchor a building, also anchored by a Leows Cinema, a Lowes Foods and a Leows Hotel. Just cuz, who doesn't want to be super confused ever time they see this. (thanks @jjwilli for the reminder about Lowes Foods)

... and a Mama Lo’s Soul Food Kitchen at ground level.

I say again, Publix generally operates at tectonic pace. As an example, they bought a Publix-anchored strip center, in Cocoa Beach, in 2013, with the intent to modernize and expand that store. 

It’s just recently gotten underway.

hmm wonder where the back office or non trading jobs could be based?   Maybe Charlotte.  Not as far fetched as it sounds the NYSE is owned by an Atlanta based company!

That would be an awesome win for Charlotte but the companies involved are all HQd in NYC except TD Ameritrade.

But hey, where else to station a new and exciting exchange back office than a new and exciting and booming city!

The companies involved according to the link are headquartered in New York. TD Ameritrade is in Omaha though. UBS AG's US headquarters are NYC. I guess that doesn't really make an argument against putting something for MEMX in Charlotte but I was hoping at least one of the consortium members would be based in Charlotte or have a really large presence. Bank of America is obviously based here but Merrill Lynch is in NYC.

^just having fun dreaming about our city.  Like @KJHburg said, if nothing else, why not put some back office operations here, in the distant number 2 or 3 financial market.

Fwiw, BOA owns Merrill Lynch.  Merrill Lynch Wealth Management is an American wealth management division under the auspices of Bank of America.  Along with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the investment banking arm, both firms engage in prime brokerage and security dealings. The firm is headquartered in New York City, and occupies the entire 34 stories of 250 Vesey Street, part of the Brookfield Place complex, in Manhattan.  Merrill Lynch employs over 15,000 financial advisors and manages $2.2 trillion in client assets.  The firm has its origins in Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. which, prior to 2009, was publicly owned and traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol MER.  Merrill Lynch & Co. agreed to be acquired by Bank of America on September 14, 2008, at the height of the 2008 Financial Crisis. The acquisition was completed in January 2009 and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. was merged into Bank of America Corporation in October 2013, although certain Bank of America subsidiaries continue to carry the Merrill Lynch name, including the broker-dealer Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith.

Oh I totally agree. I love the idea of them launching something like that in Charlotte period in any capacity. I was just wondering how viable it would be. Charlotte could very easily be the face of a new and exciting exchange. There is enough clout here for it.

@QCxpatI was just going with that they are headquartered in NYC and have been in NYC since it's inception even though it is now owned by Bank of America. But maybe if the parent company is here that could sway things.

And I know this is just speculation and everything but it's fun to think about.

This article is little easier to understand.  The main goal is to reduce costly data feeds.  If that is the case you will place as many people away from NYC as possible to save costs and Charlotte would be a great location with lots of people versed in trading etc.  https://www.wraltechwire.com/2019/01/08/wall-street-launches-new-stock-exchange-taking-direct-aim-at-nyse-nasdaq/?ssid=112928427

I'm sure that after the all Star game next month, which is expected to bring in over 100 million dollars over that weekend will spark interest in people who may want to live here, or the success of  the events, parties, and game will spark more interest for people to visit. Thankfully many more hotel rooms have been added since the initial announcement.

If they call CIAA a $50M boost, surely the All Star Game has to be more than 2x that, no? Anybody have a hookup for All Star 2019? Its my birthday weekend, and I REALLY do not want to spend $1800 a day to go to the events

Yeah. I believe with all the high profile celebrities that will be attending and all the events hosted around town,  this may be bigger. Surprisingly the article said that the last All Star game in New Orleans only brought in around 45 million. That seems kind of low for NOLA. But hey if Charlotte is going to do over double that. Its still good.

This is a really cool article about All Star Weekend. This makes me excited! 1,800 worldwide media members,  23 million television viewers and over 1.2 Billion social media expressions from previous games. Hopefully this years one will deliver those numbers, and hopefully some of that buzz will have to do with the city alone. And it says most rooms have been secured (thousands). Mostly uptown I'm sure.

Uptown is pretty much sold out. The hotels that do have availability the weekend of Feb 15th are EXPENSIVE! 

$251 a night for the Super 8 on Camden, $299 for the Days Inn on Woodlawn, $199 for the Sleep Inn on Northlake, and $476 for the Sheraton Charlotte Airport.

I really hope they utilize all those empty lots around the arena for more pop up stores and experiences.  Or even around those empty lots near CTC...could create a really cool NBA village type atmosphere.  I know the Epicentre is going to be kind of the NBA Central for things but with so many ppl in town for the weekend, hope they make the best of all the shopping opportunities.  Would love to see a pop up shipping container shops and stuff somewhere too.  There are a ton of lots around the arena that I hope are utilize to create a truly special weekend.

*Hate that there weren't any public tickets released for the actual all star game and skills challenge.  Rising stars, media day, and celeb game look fairly affordable.  Epicentre NBA experience is free to the public.  Looking forward to this weekend and don't forget to vote for Kemba!  We are the best team in the NBA when we are one game below .500, hence we will go 41-41 this season lol.

How much are the tickets for the celebrity game? And yeah I'm sure uptown will be crazy. I want to see more food trucks too as I'm sure they will do great! See! if that lot in front of Spectrum was a beautiful park like I wanted, that would have been great for this weekend, :tw_grimace:

I think I completely under-estimated the All Star Game's physical impact. I learned today that the transit center will be closed that weekend, similar to the DNC, because it falls in the security "clean zone." A temporary bus transfer area will be made between 7th and 8th

- Shake Shack announces 2-3 more Charlotte locations, Charlotte Agenda HQ explodes as a result

- Amazon Go makes its way to Charlotte. Recently rebuilt Charlotte Agenda HQ explodes again

Since Charlotte Agenda appears to be in one piece, don't think they've gotten word yet that Barry's Bootcamp is opening in Atherton Mill.

For this same reason, the CTC will end up moving away from the current location into multiple smaller locations after Charlotte Gateway Station is up and running.

Every time you have a big event at Spectrum, they have to shut it down and move it somewhere else.

      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.
