Trip to downtown Charlotte


Xss

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'll put on this topic some pics me and my parents took during our Charlotte tour on May. Since there are a lot of them (er...Almost 200 :blink:) I'll try to update this topic every day or so.

Don't take those for up to date pics (specially the construction pics) because most of them are at least 3 weeks old!

Enjoy the show:

First day taking the light rail to uptown. I took pics of some construction projects I don't know anything about : I guess those are mostly residentials.

Thanks for watching!

Why did I go to Charlotte? Well, I was studying in the US and it was my graduation year: my parents came for graduation and then we flew to Charlotte to meet my family there...And to have a few walks around downtown also! ^_^ I'd like to come back within a few years (three at least, maybe five) to see how things are changing, with most of the new projects fully completed.

Here are some more pics : not many since I'm a bit in a hurry.

Sorry if all those pics are in a complete disorder, like if I was going from one place of uptown to another in just one pic: even if I tried to organize them by date it's still messy...I guess that's what happens when you take pics with three different cameras.

Yes, I know, a lot of things have been going on the Vue site since then! :P

Seing this pic now makes me think about all the recent trouble going on between Ghazy and F&C : I hope this won't bring too much trouble to the Epicentre :huh:

2589995258_aaafae52f9_b.jpg

Some pics of the new BofA building's model in Founders hall (by the way my father had some problems with security guards while taking pics there "Sir! You're not allowed to take pictures here!" :angry: )

And now behold a great mess of random pics taken on different days :blink: Starting with The Park, which may be completed in 2020 unless it's bought and turned into offices

Some work being done at the entrance of One Wachovia. I don't know what was going on either : the street was packed with fireman cars. No accident seemed to have happened though.

Some shots of the skyline from various angles : simply think how all those will look within 5 years. :)

All those following pics were taken from the plane : sorry for the bad quality.

This angle will finally show some more density in Charlotte within a couple of years! :P

And this will be all.

Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoyed this little tour of Charlotte. :)
