Not sure if anything can be done but I find it interesting that this is one of the worst street experience buildings downtown…maybe next to the AT&T building. Just today, I had to witness some homeless lady trying to sit in the dumpy little cafe’s chairs and get into an argument with one of the staff people, ultimately requiring police involvement. The facade is Soviet-era style…at best
Duke energy has no problem spending $100 million of your money to build a gleaming tower in downtown charlotte but won’t invest a dime in Raleigh, it’s same home state. They sit on the empty lot even though they make real estate investments in charlotte. They actively recruit companies to come to charlotte but appear to provide a ‘half-ass’ support at best for companies being recruited to Raleigh. You can’t even publicly see what ‘deals’ they provide companies while we ratepayers pick up the tab of those ‘deals’.
This site seems very pro-grass roots engagement so I thought maybe someone knows how we can put pressure on a rate-payer owned monopoly who has a public responsibility to all ratepayers and the municipalities in which they are required to provide power.
