Charlotte FD No. 4 is up for sale in the fourth district. Anyone want to crowd fund a purchase to preserve this beauty?

$2.1M seems like a bit of a stretch in this market, no? Is there any Historic zoning involved?

Lifeless to alive in just a couple of years.

on topic but miniaturized... my wife 3d printed a copy of the uptown skyline for me!     Hurst was not ‘Hursted’, but check out those accurately reproduced surface lots! (actually

Per Charlotte Ledger, the land at 4th and Brevard across from CTC sold for $11M.   This is the Norfolk Southern land they were slow to let go of.    I am incredibly excited about this.  White Point Pa

A stretch as in too much? I'd say its a steal. That area of Uptown is cursed for retail though.

I will chip in, but only on the condition that it's turned into a Ghostbuster's themed diner.

Ghostbusters themed is a great idea. I was thinking a funky bar though.

Last night my girlfriend and I picked up dinner from NC Red and were going to take it somewhere to eat and watch the sunset. We drove back Uptown and went to the 7th Street parking deck to the top for the views. When we got up there, there was a security officer waiting for us, so I went ahead and drove up to him and rolled down my window to talk. I said we were just going to sit in my car, eat our dinner, and leave. He interrupted me, told me it was private property of Bank of America, and that we were trespassing. I didn’t feel like getting into it with him and our food was getting cold, so I told him to have a good night and left.

Can anyone explain why this was a problem? How can they reason it’s trespassing if I took a ticket and I’m paying to be in the garage?

They often close the top level for security purposes and discourage loitering when the other levels are below capacity. Did he say you couldn't park on the other levels or just the top level would be trespassing?

There is a problem with suicides in uptown parking garages and that is why he might have wanted you to move on.  It is owned by Bank of America.

I thought about that too, KJ. That is terribly sad. I showed him our takeout bag though so he knew we weren’t up to anything. Maybe I should have offered him some. He broadly said we were trespassing, so didn’t feel like I could go several floors down and stay. Oh well, we tried to get creative to enjoy a pandemic-responsible Saturday night haha.

Back to more exciting miscellaneous development news...

Any idea why Wells Fargo shut down their CLT lights Twitter?  Kinda nice to know why the city was lighting up certain colors. Laid off? 

Who knows, but I took it over on my account @CLTDevelopment. All I did was schedule tweets for the next month, it took 1 hour, not sure why they couldn't spend one single hour.

Curious that they’ve also decided not to light their own building anymore at this same time.  They’ve been off for maybe a couple weeks now.

It's been off more often than usual, but it's still being lit up every night. normally red, white and blue, or White. They just randomly kill the lights for 30 seconds or so every so often.

I think you're referring to Duke, yes?  The WF jukebox building has been dark for a hot minute now.  But yes, DEC does turn off then back on sporadically now for some reason.

Does anyone know why the jukebox building hasn't been lot up for some time?

Just learned the BBT Parking Garage sold to Cousins for $85m, RDF, what's happening?

Cousins bought it but they also own BofA Plaza next block over connected by Overstreet Mall.  that building really has no parking and they will have a lot of space to fill when BofA leaves.  It is speculated that US Bank which is primarily in Truist Tower will be squeezed out of there and anchor the newly name US Bank Plaza.  This garage purchase could be for US Bank's parking and besides  you can add 10 floors of buildable space atop that garage and that gives them a value add site for whoever the get as an the anchor tenant for BofA Plaza.  But that is my thoughts @Tyree Ricardo says about it.
