Hello again, Charlotteans!

I've been loving checking out the city (via research, haven't been there just yet). Even if I don't get this job, I'm going to keep investigaing. I'm liking what I'm seeing!

That said: I'm an urban kind of guy. Love skylines, and city parks, etc. In your opinion, what is the swankiest and or nicest high-rise or mid-rise residences in Down Town? I look online, but what a website says can be vastly different from reality (ya know, they ARE trying to sell the place )

Again, I appreciate any answers and thank you for your time

I'm REALLY hoping for this job!

Default The Circle

If you don't need much SQFTage, The Circle is pretty nice. I have a friend that lives there that I visit.

That being said, the down side of it is, unless you like living like your back in college living in a dormroom. This place is not for you.

There are mostly right-out-of-college people living in this complex that got swooped up by the banking industry that like to still party every night.

My friend is in his early 40's and he says that was fun when he first moved there but gets old sometimes.

Default Trump is coming

Another thought for ya,

I am looking forward to the Trump Tower being built here. Not sure of your age but I believe the Trump Tower will be a little bit more grown up, not the after-college, dormrooom type living.

Thanks! I will check out the Circle. Frat house doesn't bother me, as long as I have my corner away from it (my place here in Tampa that I just moved out of was like that and I loved it. I was the "cool uncle" to most of the kids). As far as Trump goes - those places are a little to gauche for my tastes, usually, though you never know.

Check out Avenue, in Fourth Ward. A co-worker of mine lives there and has said they like the place. It is close to center city and Gateway Village, which is also a trendy area to live. Good luck and be sure to invite us to your move-in party....

If you guys don't mind, I've got a few questions of my own on this topic. Looking forward to next year when I'll be looking to renew my current lease, I was thinking about the possibility of moving closer to uptown. I've never lived somewhere that was within a city, so I don't know what the experience is like.

Bearing in mind that my job is NOT uptown, would there be any benefits, tangible or intangible, to uptown living? I normally eat at home since I want to watch my diet. Where I am now I can easily walk to most everything I need, except for the entertainment venues. The rest are a short drive away, so that's not a problem. However, there's not a lot of socializing with the rest of the tenants. People have their own work schedules, families and friends, so I don't know if there's ever much chance of making friends in such a transient environment. Would that aspect be different?
