2011 items to watch

4 posts in this topic

Was just thinking that there are a number of big items this year.. This isn't the wish list (which is another thread), but items that I believe should be happening this year

  • Park Condos/Hotel construction (completion?)
  • Decision on 2012 DNC Convention (please, please, please let it be CLT)
  • Wells Fargo name on CLT bank branches (final good bye to Wachovia)
  • Wells Fargo museum storefront on Tryon
  • Opening of Luski Galleries in the New Foundation for the Carolinas building (old Mint Craft Museum location)
  • Final move ahead or nix on Knights stadium?
  • Construction starts on streetcar line between CTC and Elizabeth Avenue
  • Federal Funding decision on BLE?
  • Opening of UNC Charlotte Uptown campus building.
  • New retail (please let it not just be restaurants) in the Duke energy building plaza (next to Mint)
  • Opening of Panera Bread and Carolina Ale House on College St.
  • Grand Opening of the new Hotel Sierra
  • Census figures for cities released with new 2010 CLT population numbers

What else is coming up?

Well - Duke & Progress merger wasn't on my list. Nor was a large accounting firm moving their HQ here.

Here's hoping 2011 keeps up this momentum!
