I'd be like Ant Man and pee my pants if I was these guys:   

Long-time lurker (as in probably a decade plus), first-time poster.  Two pics of Tryon Place - construction on the tower itself and the JW Marriott site.   

So here's a new view of Uptown  from Ally....  pretty cool!

Ahhh, that must have been the rumored "video boards" on the crown that was mentioned a very long time ago.  Had no idea the letters were the actual video boards....I was initially thinking the whole rectangular crown would have been wrapped in video board material....but this is cool to know.  I like ally's marketing and color scheme.  The purple is a catchy color and the simplistic logo works well too (very recognizable).

Is that the final look for the parking garage screening? If so, that is absolutely lazy. 

They should have taken a look at Vantage South End’s parking deck. It looks like a separate building...oh yeah, with retail too. Unlike this one.

Everything about this building was lazy, compared to the original  rendering many years ago.  The crown looks like an aluminum sided fence, and at night it's just translucent enough to see the parking garage quality lights behind it.  The street level retail that was supposed to be an open air mall was dialed down to 5 restaurant spaces and an ice cream window.  The Marriott, actually is ok, but definitely nothing to write home about, and the garage, which is an enormous visible wall, looks unfinished, facing one of the most prominent entrances to uptown.  Very little thought was put into this building at most levels.

Agreed! The hotel is the best and garage is worst. Office Building is decent but yeah I see laziness all over this development. I would have preferred the original design from like 2016.

It took me stepping away to see it but the fever pitch of hot takes, and uninformed architectural criticism vs constructive discussion will likely sink this site.

 

It has been crescendoing for a while, as has the fervor of rhetoric in this country, but there are enough good contributors here to survive, just as our country and city have. I hope we are moving into a new age of hope, optimism and gratefulness.

Well, they did plant It In the dry winter. Should start to fill out a little more over the summer and will prob take a few years to really give off that vibe. Still not sure why this one was brought In when there are plenty in Charlotte already. 

I don't understand why they used a non-native species. Live Oaks do hold onto some of their leaves in the winter, but there are only about five leaves on this specimen.

Southern live oak is very long lived, and there are many specimens that are more than 400 years old in the deep southern United States

Live Oak life is far different than human life span. Judge not by our puny standard.
