construction in Uptown


Today’s photo shows where Duke Energy is building a 40 story tower on South Tryon in Uptown Charlotte. This is one of four construction sties within two blocks.

Following is a link to a news article about the Duke Energy construction plans. The construction site is near the intersection of South Tryon Street & East Stonewall Street.


We were shopping at Best Buy when this photo was taken. We also frequently park at the Metropolitan because it gives us easy access to the Little Sugar Creek Greenway. In addition Trader Joe’s, great restaurants, and outdoor music can be found at the Metropolitan.

This photo was taken from a parking garage. The mural is signed by @naploetanoArt

The artist is Nick Nepoletano and following is a link to the Nepoletano Art P . This mural is located at 1111 metropolitan Ave. following is a link to the Metropolitan mid-town website

Asbury Restaurant

This photo shows the outdoor seating at the Asbury restaurant. On Sunday we enjoyed brunch at the Asbury and the meal was great as always. In my opinion the Asbury is the best restaurant in Charlotte. And based on their awards others agree as well.

Personally, I think you can identify great restaurants when they share the chefs name. At the Asbury, Mike Long is the executive chef and Miranda Brown is the pastry chef.
