Will it be built? Is it just another rendering of the same old plan that was recently put on hold? Maybe all of the above.
The original Trump proposal was planned around the Tryon-Stonewall-College street block, but discerning observers at UrbanPlanet.org note that, based on these renderings, the site appears to be in the space created by the current realignment of I-277 around South Blvd.
Even further: early captures of the renderings from the Trump Charlotte website this morning show the Westin building, which is adjacent to the new plots of land, and whose presence has since been removed from the current renderings online.
Surely that’s a lot of work just for a website that complements an ad in a program for a golf tournament. Obviously it’s all speculation, but with a freshly acquired location and a poignant ad during a high-profile local golf tournament, things are looking pretty good for Trump Charlotte.
