As a part of the younger crowd that keeps getting referenced, Charlotte is the most boring city I've ever been to. Greenville attracted me and my business first. Part of Charlotte's problem is it isn't even close to a major college. Greenville has Clemson and Furman.

I frequently compare Greenville, Spartanburg and Clemson to Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.

Greenville is also excellent for entrepreneurs - Charlotte is good for...bankers maybe.

Yes Columbia is tops population wise with current annex, but all Greenville has to do is annex Taylors, Wade Hampton, and everything either around Simpsonville or on the West Side (Berea, Parker, City View, Dunedin, Judson, Welcome, Gantt, Sans Souci), and voila, 150,000+ people immediately. Annex residents around Furman, North Pleasantburg, Paris Mountain, Five Forks, Pelham, and Piedmont as well, and that's well over 200,000 easy.

And Greenville County leads all other SC counties by at least 80,000 people.

But at the end of the day, who cares? Both are great cities, and along with Charleston, are pushing South Carolina forward. Each city has something its good at and a specific purpose. This doesn't need to be a competition. As long as the state runs well-oiled then all is well, but if city A is clashing with city B, and it holds cities C-Z back, then theres a problem. That's currently not happening so get over yourself. Nobody gives a rats butt about Charlotte and why Charlotte is so supreme, you're in the wrong state. Stop breaking your ban. You show mad disrespect for everyone here, including moderators who have given you countless chances.

And boom goes the dynamite!

Exactly what I was saying earlier and this brings up a great point I saw a movie director talk about in why South Carolina is the perfect state to shoot movies.

He said that within 3 hours, you can have any scene you would ever want, Mountains, beach, coastal, flat farmland, rolling hills, a small town, a city of numerous sizes and feels, and rivers and lakes of any type of topography.

Every corner of this state, every town, every area, every metro, etc. offers something and especially in terms of our big 3 metros, are completely different and thriving in their own ways. Each is growing rapidly and each is becoming well known across the country!

This is a nice development. Not sure why they have to call it high rise when it's more mid rise though. Not necessary really.

Very nice! Don't beat me up, as I haven't been in the area for any length of time for a while, but what happened to the Embassy Suites that was supposed to go downtown?

What makes a building a high rise though? 10 stories? 15 stories? Is there even a true definition over what makes a building a high rise over a mid rise?

The AC hotel part is interesting. I found this article that says it's aimed at Millennials and made comparisons to Aloft. Said it is a mid-priced hotel. Reviews on their hotels in DC & New Orleans are good (average rating of 4 stars for both of those properties on Trip Advisor).

Marriott imports a new hotel brand for Millennials

I was rooting for a W hotel, but that may be too high priced. It just seems like all the new hotels opening are at the same price point.

I think there is, if I remember correctly. Referring to height.
