Pat Hall dreamed big. On Aug. 3, 1973 he released the plans for The Carolina Center, phase 2 of his 2,000 acre planned developement. This was to be a business park with two, 10 story hotels complete with helipad and 1,500 seat auditorium. The hotels would have it's own monorail station that would take guests into the park. This all sounded grand, but unfortunately, this dream was not realized.
