I wonder why 2019 has been so crazy violent. Charlotte is on track to have a really high murder and violent crime rate.

It’s the heat, it’s driving people mad. :tw_confused:

But honestly, Charlotte used to be quite safe, not sure what the heck is up with people shooting in broad daylight (with first responders near the same block!)

Apparently the shot came from an altercation in the Epicentre. Shocker. 

Place is going to go the route of Underground Atlanta if stuff like this keeps up.

I think this is why they want it to be more retail oriented as opposed to night clubs and bars however of course this was in the middle of the day and it was an innocent bystander across the street by the Omni who was hit.  Very sad.

The tough thing is as the Epicenter gets a worse and worse reputation, what major reputable retailer would pick it over alternative locations in Charlotte? There are too many other empty retail locations in Charlotte with more local residents, easier access to high income residents, no homeless people asking for money, and no brawls going on in courtyards.

Charlotte is still very safe. The violence is a lifestyle problem except for a few random murders which will happen each year. I'm using random as a figure of speech, not mathematically.

I tend to agree. I was just shooting from the hip with my comment (no pun intended). I have to be in multiple cities for my job every week, and I feel ten times safer in Uptown than a lot of other cities I travel to. Hopefully my perception doesn’t get the best of me, j/k 

Every city has their issues, I believe the QC is still one of the good ones where a guy can go from one place to the next without fear of violence. 

That said, I can’t say the same for many other places, where I truly have my nerves tested when the sun goes down. Especially when I’m in a suit and in a dimly lit parking garage. We’ve all been there. Sketchy seems to fit the word I’m looking for. Charlotte isn’t close to there.

This will be the 8th Starbucks in Uptown. 

does this count the one coming to the Bohemian hotel?  But given 100,000 office workers I guess it is not too out of line though I get my coffee elsewhere 99% of the time.

9?!?! Blue-button down, Black Patagonia vest yuppies love starbucks!!!

But lemme tell y’all - Starbucks can never beat the open range and a good pot of cowboy coffee. For those city slickers who don’t know - I prefer my coffee over a fire and brewed in a kettle. “No filter” needed for my grounds, just gravity and time. 

For those want to know the TRUTH only: https://www.roastycoffee.com/cowboy-coffee/

Can't believe this hasn't been mentioned but Crescent Stonewall Station traded earlier this week for $372,500 per unit, shattering Uptown records.

 

And they were purchased by Lennar/LMC, who is leasing-up The Bradham at New Bern Station, and building The Ellis in First Ward.
