Mostly the beer and the extreme distance, but whatever.

Maybe we need a Photo of the Day series.......the city as seen from each brewery.  I know the view from Catawba is cool.  And here's my shot from Sycamore last Sunday.......but just outside the fence thus no beer is visible:

Could be bigger.

The building height is great, though.

Agree and that 85 and 77 dont really get close to Uptown as you drive by either. The density has greatly improved but I hope we can start building taller towers off of Tryon. I know that's our money street but towers like FNB and Market 42 will definitely help. In regard to your city feel comment, I call it the 360 test. Can I do a full circle and be surrounded by towers or see them in the distance (density test really).

I know I've said this before and I'll say it again, once the North Tryon plan kicks off and if Levine figures his $#!+ out then the full skyline will be massive. I'm hoping for a few more towers around the height of what we are already seeing (Market 42, Carolina Theater, etc) with a steady stepdown to around ten or so stories abutting 277. A dense skyline from loop end to loop end would be a beautiful sight.

This is some FANTASTIC night time drone footage of uptown!

(warning it spins at the beginning that might make you nauseous)

 

I thoroughly Enjoyed that. I think my favorite shot is when it's crossing the Tryon Street Bridge over 277.

Hoo boy, I know that house. Mallonee-Jones house.

http://www.cmhpf.org/S&Rs Alphabetical Order/surveys&rmallonee.htm

I have been in that house and it is spectacular. The builder was also a lumber merchant and used the house as an advertisement for his work and materials. Nothing says luxury in a home as fine woodwork and this has it in spades even more on the inside than outside. The sunburst motif over the entrance is one of the best features of Dilworth. Inside there was (is?) a call system from all rooms to the kitchen. There is a wall that is about two feet wide in the middle of the house which allows a narrow passageway  to enable servants to go from the back of the first floor to the front rooms without disturbing other rooms.  I moved into a house at 301 East Kingston, one block away, about a month before the death of Mrs. Jones who lived there for 75 years. Yes, 75 years. I have walked past this house at least a thousand times and was a home host on the Dilworth Home Tour many years ago when this house was a tour home. 

Edward Dilworth Latta and his partners developed Dilworth with a slogan "Live in the country and work in the city". So check the photo of that house as a new house and dirt streets alongside and you have the idea what they were selling.

Jorgi you have a great eye.

Awesome! Thank you for the back story! I had noticed this house several times, but had never photographed it. Dilworth definitely has a few gems, but this one is one of my favorites.
