The deal with the GA system will be better because I would imagine there is increased overlap and probably a more robust amount of healthcare options in GA

The deal had faced opposition from the state’s largest health insurer, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.


So I think most people in NC were in the dark on this deal. I still could not see what they were trying to do.


Both will do all right with out a merger, which was not needed at all.

Charlotte and Raleigh both continue to grow, but in very different ways


Contrary to popular perception, the United States is continuing to become more suburban and at a faster rate, with a few exceptions, according to an analysis by The New York Times.

In North Carolina, Charlotte is building up, while Raleigh is building out.


The Times used data to debunk “the myth of the return to cities” by showing that cities like Seattle and Charlotte are becoming more dense while Raleigh and Austin sprawl.


Metro areas in the U.S. are split as some become more dense while others sprawl.

Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Hartford and Charlotte all became more dense from 2010-16, according to data from the 2016 census county population estimates and occupied housing unit data from the U.S. Postal Service.

San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma City, Houston, Las Vegas, Jacksonville, Fla., Orlando, Dallas, Salt Lake City and Raleigh all became less dense during the same period, the Times reported.

Charlotte is on the rise to be a large city, but it is not there yet.

Another new bank tower is coming to Charlotte’s skyline


Another bank tower is joining Charlotte’s growing skyline, with the addition of a 31-story building at 401 S. Graham Street.
Pittsburgh-based FNB Corp., the parent company of First National Bank, said Tuesday that it will be the anchor tenant for the new building, to be called FNB Tower-Charlotte.

The building will include 160,000 square feet of office space and, in a new arrangement for Charlotte, 215 luxury apartments. Street-level retail space will be anchored by an FNB branch

The bank is also building a similar tower in Raleigh, expected to be complete in summer 2019. That building, at building at 501 Fayetteville St., will be 22 stories and include about 240 apartments.

Do you invest in any of these enterprises or is this just for fun? The SimCity fantasizing is quite entertaining. However, I miss the old Charlotte quite a bit. The last time I was in Uptown Charlotte it felt like the urban version of Cary NC. It was very homogeneous and stale. The corporations who own those skyscrapers could obviously care less about the people scale of the area.
