  1. By the Bulls Stadium in DT Durham after the game on July 4th. UNC
  2. From Morris Adjmi’s Instagram account. This looks really nice.
  3. I agree, but it doesn’t seem to be on the MLB’s radar. Las Vegas, which now will have a team, SLC, and Nashville dominated the discussion.
  4. That’s a good point. For that matter, Charlotte (and NC generally) seem to be well down on the list of potential MLB sites.
  5. I’ve lived in Charlotte and the Triangle. NC can’t support two baseball teams. Any NC team should be located in Charlotte. It’s the biggest city in the state, and it’s very centrally located to metros in NC and SC. I go to Panthers and Charlotte FC games all the time, and I’d go to MLB games in Charlotte.
  6. I agree. 301 S. College has always been one of my favorite buildings in Charlotte. It was fairly new when I first came to Charlotte around 1989. The city at that time was a small, truly southern town, but it appealed to me from that very first time.
  7. Not to get off topic, but Charlotte has to tackle crime to make people want to work Uptown and in SouthEnd. The latest shooting on Tryon Street last night was disturbing. The city should hire a lot more police, and it should crush the myth that they’re racist civil rights abusers. Same in Durham, where crime is utterly out of control. As someone who has loved Charlotte for a long time (and still does), it’s heartbreaking to see thugs running rampant and creating havoc.
  8. It’s good to see Charlotte in the top 30 on this list, and in the company of Minneapolis, Nashville, and SLC.

  9. Charlotte hits above its weight in tech too. Not surprisingly though, the Triangle does really well too. https://www.visualcapitalist.com/biggest-tech-talent-hubs-in-us-canada/
  10. I drove through this area quickly last week, and I’m pretty sure that the first of the two “conjoined twin” towers has risen.
  11. They’re doing well too. Pittsburgh isn’t surprising though because Carnegie Mellon is a huge resource.
  12. Charlotte did pretty well and always hits above its weight. I’d like to see it catch up to Atlanta.

  13. I think it looks great. Also, $650m isn’t that much money these days. Not to mention, Tepper is crazy enough to move the team to Salt Lake City where I’m sure that he’d be welcomed with open arms like they did for the Arizona Coyotes. I hope that Charlotte makes this happen.
