I agree. I also think once the economy bounces back we will have a new tallest in Charlotte. Once the economy bounces back, I give it 10-15 year when Charlotte may get its first super tall.

Although I'm all for skyline-altering projects, I'd love to see more midrises in Uptown's future. They'll create more density and get rid of more parking lots and make Uptown more cohesive and pedestrian-friendly. Basically, let's replicate the density and urbanity of Gateway Village throughout Uptown.

Reading through the lines, this sounds like another public housing scam where ultimately a developer gets public money. Otherwise the thing would not be built. It should be noted the existing residents of the area are protesting it as being out of character for their homes nearby.

I'm all for that as well. I can see Church Street being lined up with 10-25 story midrises near the eventually-built Transit Staion and Romare Bearden Park.

I think that sounds realistic as to the timeframe of when we will see a super tall for Charlotte.

WCNC had the neighborhood group on and they are against this project and the reporter said public housing was planned in one of the buildings. I personally would hate to see Charlotte covered with skyscrapers.

Right now nothing but when the economy recovers, Wells Fargo might build a condo tower atop one of the museums.
