Trip to downtown Charlotte

17 posts in this topic

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:

From the plane

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.

Sorry about the double post, but apparently I'm not allowed to post so many pictures in only one single post.

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

Looking good, it's amazing the construction boom we're undergoing in Charlotte.

Indeed: I'm really curious to see how the city will look like within a couple of years!

And here are some more:

A little walk around through Fourth Ward: we don't see enough pics of that neighborhood! ^_^

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.

2589189407_267011c9bb_b.jpg

2590025384_886809c06b_b.jpg

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

2589190323_131423765e_b.jpg

And this will be all.

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