I bet you could convince LH to build one for ya, they like outdated concepts in weird places.

Lmao. I think there's a better chance of an Apple store coming than that as someone mentioned a few weeks ago as a suggestion.

^ that looks better than the pictures shared. In person it may have been different, but the all star epicenter looked tacky. Normal epicenter looks cosmopolitan and big city

Thank you! That picture was taken today! I agree! But I just wish there was actual retail stores in the EpiCentre all the time!

How soon will EpiCenter(re) be replaced with tower?

Not likely in the short term.  It is a complicated project as a condominium where one owner owns the retail, the hotels own their sites so unless the main owner does something I would say sometime in the future but years off.

Jacksonville Landing was recently purchased by the city to be demolished. It struggled for 31 years.

Why would you even want that?

Dont they already have a relatively newly opened hotel tower? I dont see them selling out too soon with that plus the large crowds it regularly draws in every week. Also there are still many available plots open in uptown so it's not like developers are desperate for space if they have the type of money to even consider buying and building on the Epicenter plot

No, epicentre is going to be around for a long time. i wouldnt even get the thought of it being demo'd for a building in your head

I didn't I was just trying to figure out why that was the topic...I would hate for Charlotte to lose that. It beings more life to Uptown than anything. I actually wish they could make a second one in another location.

Near the stadium and ballpark would be great. That area sees a lot of foot traffic.

Omg yes! but i want something for the north side of uptown. Like in the area between Skyhouse  and the new Market 42 apartments. Oh yeah and a park like RB to go along with it. lol

I know Tepper is going to potentially build his idea of an entertainment district somewhere near his stadium, but I always envisioned a LA Live type of atmosphere where CTC is now (Also where I would locate the Jordan/Nike Brand Experience (Half museum & half store)).  Anyone been to Orlando and have seen the huge NBC Sports Grill & Brew, I'd put something like that there too.  I picture people flooding out of Spectrum center and that area just becoming a super cool strolling/entertainment district.  I know some on here don't like the signage and bright lights, but I say bring em on (in the right locations) and those couple blocks I consider our entertainment district so to speak (currently).  I like that Times Square effect and would welcome more video boards.  The future Moxy Hotel next to CTC fits that trendy/party vibe too.  I like that stretch of Trade being our entertainment district bc it's in the core of Uptown and the vibe in any 2 block direction from Trade & Tryon is unparalleled. 

We think so much alike! I totally agree with you. I think Charlotte is ready.  And a Nike Museum would be soooo cool. Michael would be right down the road too lol

Vive la Epi!

And more relevant to the latest discussion, if they spearheaded a similar clustered entertainment block I'd want it to be on the Northside (First Ward) and be branded/populated with businesses that provide a good counterpoint to Epi's lineup. If the first retail superblock we have is more attuned to bars, clubs and entertainment, let's build one that abuts Levineland (and makes him look even worse incidentally, lol) and lure a combo of dry goods and specialty shops. EpiCentre can then gradually evolve its upper club/nightlife spaces to be relevant to basketball or sports since it's closer to both stadiums and the arena, and the second iteration can bill itself according to local charm and added retail density. Make them like brothers from separate mothers. I realize that's more up to individual businesses and where they ultimately WANT to be, but it's a pipe dream that still makes more than its share of sense.

What comes to mind is infill in the parking lot of Optimist Hall. The local flavor/charm will already be there, so...

Now even though it's JUST awkwardly-enough in between the Blue and Silver line stations to be quite as transit-oriented as epi (unless maybe like Atherton, they'll add a stop at 16th Steventually?)..

Maybe in 10-20 years the entire site will be an innovative combo of new and old developments.
