Foul balls are gonna go BONK on the metal roof
From the renderings it looks like that fence will go away and they will pad the wall of the facility.
An indoor hitting facility is a need with the growing landscape of college sports, wish they would have built it elsewhere. It’s not going to look good sitting on top of the field like it is.
I agree, would have been better down left field line and a little further OFF the line.
For some reason I thought it was on the left field line. I was hoping for a permanent Norm’s tavern where the practice facility is going.
If we could go back in time for the planning, a rooftop Norm’s Tavern would have been tremendous.
Had that thought after I clicked reply, but didn’t feel like editing my post.
clt doesn’t want to be critical, but that looks more like an outdoor hitting facility
The original plan was to put it down the LF line when the current version of the stadium was built. I’m guessing it was more functional and cost efficient to put it where it is going. It is only a few steps away from their clubhouse and very easily accessible to the players. The land over there is already graded and ready to build on, making it cheaper.
** Near Campus Construction Update: The Kohl’s building across the street is going to be turned into 87,000 sq ft of office space.
Would it be a smart idea to start a Charlotte Business Incubator with that? Help entrepreneurs in the area with expertise from the Belk College?
Hmm, I thought the local group of property owners were going to turn that whole mall area into a Franklin Street type entertainment district, thought that’s why Khols moved out. I’m on mobile, might be able to find the article about it later.
That’s the purpose of the PORTAL building on campus.
I hate this. It’s a full service Marriott, not a Courtyard by Marriott. We have enough brick and pre-cast concrete.
I think it looks great.
Kohl’s to be mostly office space. So cool and all.
Eh, I don’t mind it. I do like that we’ve seemingly decided on a Look for the University. Now we just need to get our branding nightmare under control.
