^ thank you for relieving me of that perplexing puzzle KJ. And you are 100% correct Charlotte has built essentially another city in the last decade. Sometimes we get caught up in things we don’t like and how they are built and lose sight of how blessed it is to be in a thriving city and state. NC, and especially Charlotte, have thrived this last decade. We should all be thankful to even be able to complain about some building or project. Others would actually just like to have something to talk about at all. Ha! 

 

Thanks again for solving the mystery and for keeping us all abreast of the changes in the Queen City. Always enjoy your posts and pics. That goes for all the contributors in the UP community. 

 

ps—-a special shout out to some old pals:

atlrvr, Messian Corners, Dubone, and many others who have been on this site for the last decade plus. By the way RDF has come a loooong way over the years. I remember him posting way back when. Now he is quite the source for info. I am not sure what you do now RDF, but I’m sure you have to be happy doing what you love these days. At least that’s the way I figure it. 

 

pss—-perhaps I will throw my economics and market commentary on in some future posts. I never like to be the pessimist or optimist, just a realist. My two cents for this post is that Charlotte should be able to go vertical with most all projects that have a shovel in the ground within the next nine to twelve months. After that, the undercurrent of the markets gets quite interesting (from a macro level). The one positive is that even with a possible recession looming, Charlotte is diversifying their economic base. This is a HUGE deal, and should help it weather the coming downturn. Mark this post as we will see a major downturn and soon, with a strong likelihood of the birth pains happening before the next election.

Dude!! My favorite Wachovia A number! Glad you’re doing well, friend. Miss seeing you around these parts.

Thanks MC! I will be through soon enough. Hope to see many of you guys when I’m back in town. I will post some more now that I got off my lazy butt and created a new account. In the meantime, thanks for keeping me in the loop with all the info! 

ps—-now back to topic. Whoever posts the next pic, make it a good one! I have saved many of the ones you guys have been posting. We have some talented photographers on UP! I have seen a ton of really good ones as of late. I’m sure that will only get better as the skyline grows up and out!

And Kimley Horne is in exploratory phase at Brooklhill

I like this - but I thought there was a lawsuit and the estate settlement of a multi-billionaire to deal with?

Who knows, I just know they are exploring options on behalf of one of the land owners. (land and buildngs are owned by separate entities, which is bananas)

Does anyone know what will ever happen with the parking lots near the Uptown Cabaret? I’m sure it might have been mentioned in this thread or another. But for the sake of just being lazy, I thought I’d ask here, since they stand out on this shot. 

One of those lots could be an incredible curved high rise that leads into Uptown.  Or possibly even a Flat Iron type of building. Either way, I know UC is a cash cow (not that I would actually know anything about that place :tw_kiss:), but didn’t know if they owned the lots, or if they were owned by another entity. 

The other lot of interest are where the Midnight Diner is. Those are primo spots for a gateway that ties Uptown to SE.

Lastly, who owns the lot directly across  from the UC (as you go to the North, before you cross over the bridge)? All of these lots have amazing potential with the right developers.

As I understand it, the land is for sale currently, with the stipulation that the Uptown Cabernet gets lease back rights and remains open at a very competitive rate. Last I saw price was around $28M. I don’t think it’s sold, tho I haven’t seen it actively advertised in a while.

So this would be a great time to get all our deep pocket UP peeps in on the investment of a Lifetime! We all pool our resources together, close on the land and have our ceremonial  ground breaking on Jan 1, 2020 for the  UP HQ tower. A  statement tower with kaleidoscope lighting leading into Uptown.  

I will also be requesting a helipad. We could use that for professional and personal reasons. Plus it could dovetail as our new splash into flights over Charlotte for those who want to really see Uptown from all the right angles. 

Maybe if we all just bought some more Bitcoin and open our accounts in two years we might be able to pull this epic project off. 

:tw_glasses:

ps—-I hope Neo is reading. You know he’ll want the corner office at the top.

Well....one of the lots near U.C. just sold.  The Enterprise Rent-a-car sold to adjacent parking lot owner   Don't know much beyond that, but expect a hotel.

I could dig that. Would love to see a Boutique hotel over a chain. But they might not be able to pull off the money part of the equation.

I heard an office developer was tied to that lot. That said the buyer is a hotel operator. But he’s been sketchily shopping that land on LinkedIn for like 2 years.

I would like to see some antelopes grazing in this field to celebrate the release of “The Lion King”.

For some reason when I read this, my mind went back to Toto, and the song Africa. :) 

“I bless the rains down in Africa 
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had (ooh, ooh)”
