When I started at First Presbyterian, there were 15 condo projects being prepped to build in Uptown Charlotte. Since that time, I believe 4 have been completed, while all the rest have stalled.
I hold before the congregation that there are now 1595 condos across the street from our churches property. As of yesterday that number will drop to 1095, the Vue–a 50 story luxury condo–has been stopped.
From my office window I have been able to watch this building go up, and to my laymen’s eye it is near completion.

I wonder if I will ever see those cranes move again.
