I mean...do they design these apartments nowadays with their eyes closed..because the materials and colors just don’t look good at all together.

Designers were probably trying not to have a solid color along the building since this block is so long.  I think the different colors and patterns make it interesting to look at if not perfectly color matched.  I think it looks good and distinctive.

So this is pretty cool. Public art in a new plaza that really needs some public art (at the Bradham). Also a nod to “history” (Charlotte timeline history is different than history everywhere else). Its crushed Pepsi cans. 
(From the Charlotte Ledger)

No, They are part of the installation, that is what makes this so Charlotte.

Another 5-6 of these sorts of things along the rail trail would really make it a destination for Charlotte.

Lol, I just didn't know if they were a barrier to prevent touching if the installation isn't permanent.

Pretty sure its permanent, but all I know is what I read in the Ledger.

I can understand not one solid color but these are just blah. The outside just looks bland and faded. Color theory and basic sense would help. A lot,

Anyone know when The Hawk will open for leasing?

They are already taking reservations for units.  They have been for a few months.

The new Aloft hotel in Mooresville looks pretty cool with the tasteful neon lights.  Hopefully this one will be also.  I love the light show.  I’d be surprised though if they break ground anytime before next summer though.

This is essentially the standard design for most Aloft Hotels these days.

Aloft design aesthetic continues to astound. It's like their head designer is a 50-year-old who thinks he's 35 and thinks he's an expert on what's popular right now in Europe even though he hasn't been to Europe since he did a lot of coke there during grad school in the 90s. He also leases a Polaris Slingshot.

There has never been a more accurate description of a Polaris Slingshot driver (rider?) than this.
