BEST NEW BUILDING/ATTRACTION
With lawsuits keeping construction in limbo, it’s hard to say when this multi-million dollar mixed-use monstrosity will be finished. But developer Afshin Ghazi promises big things for the future “entertainment hub” of Uptown Charlotte, including a hip hotel from Starwood, a five-screen all-digital movie theater, and an 18-lane bowling alley. While the legal dust settles, the doors remain open at Dale Jr.’s watering hole Whisky River, Suite, Pavilion, BlackFinn and dueling piano bar Howl at the Moon.
Old Convention Center site at College Street, Trade Street and 4th Street.
