The nearly $1.2 billion sale of most of Ballantyne Corporate Park last year easily blew Charlotte's commercial real estate sales record out of the water. But it was not only a noteworthy deal for the Queen City - it was one of the biggest office deals across the U.S. last year. The portfolio sale of Ballantyne to Northwood Investors in March was the third-largest real estate transaction in the office sector, according to Commercial Cafe and Yardi Matrix data.
A derelict but prominent site in east Charlotte could be revitalized if a zoning petition gets approved by Charlotte City Council. The abandoned Varnadore Building at 4037 E. Independence Blvd. is the centerpiece of a petition filed for the site, which also includes a one-story retail building that's also vacant but would be demolished if the project is approved.
No $5 billion investment. No addition of 50,000 jobs. And no #Prime mover and shaker to bring endless publicity as well as a mini-economic boom. Charlotte and its outlying counties lost all of that and more on Thursday when Amazon scratched the area from its list of potential sites for the HQ2 campus touted by the online retailer for months.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
