I like the look of these! This will definitely give this a much more urban feel! Also will really help liven up the area and the entrance to the music factory.

It's definitely the furmanesque midrise style that is a lot of places these days, but still I am excited about this project. Not only the location bridging 4th Ward and NCMF, but the density on a plot that is unexpected.

Given the young people they will market to, I'm sure that street-side pool will be quite the 'streetlife'.

I like the look of these apartments as well. It will definitely "brighten up" the entrance into the Music Factory district (as I call it).

How can the NCRR/CSX grade-separation project get built without impacting this street?

And if that's a complication, how can this development (apartments, deck, and restaurant) even be built prior to the rail project?

Just echoing others about being thrilled about this project. In many ways the lack of something there causes a mental block for many people between NCMF and Downtown. Hopefully that will lead into further development on Graham

Owner is shopping the project to developers to sell of rather than develop themselves, so the rendering/architecture/site plan you see today may not be what materializes. I've also seen a rendering of the hotel planned for the music factory. Very art deco 70's mod. Not sure the timeline on that or how it would be branded using the existing design. I don't know how that would do in that location assuming a high end boutique concept that it appears to be.

The mainline crossing project is going to make the Johnson crossing a small bridge while CSX is dropped into a trench. I would love to see NCMF buy up these industrial projects and expand the entertainment options closer into town.

The city has been looking at adding a pedestrian bridge across the tracks to return access to the cemetery. I could see these buildings being a great annex for NCMF further building out the area as an entertainment district. The green space of the cemetery could be an asset in the long run, and the buildings seem suitable to similar types of reuse like in the original project.

Would be nice, except the ADM plant is no longer planning to relocate.

That is really disappointing. The ADM is such an eye sore and puts a damper on a lot of rail options to Gateway station.

From what I've heard our yard Trainmaster saying (I work for CSX), they're looking at options to either increase car capacity directly at the ADM mill on their tracks or perhaps building out Tryon Yard a bit more. So no, sounds like they're not planning to go anywhere anytime soon. I'm actually on the job that works that plant and ADM's sugar / corn syrup place a little farther down the line next week, heh.

Is there any update on this?  I saw this devopment on the updated google map we have and it's one I really wish could move forward.  I bike often to VBGB and just having something in this lot other then a billboard sign would do wonders for making the music factory feel closer to town.

Edit: And speaking of biking over to the Music Factory.  The sand Volleyball courts at VBGB were a great addition.  Renassaince is the next closest decent option and thats down off Tyvola.  Just one more fun thing to do at the NCMF, and I was one of the doubters when it was proposed. :)

Looks good.

 

What happened to the apartment project that was supposed to be built over there? It was announced well over a year ago (maybe 2 years by now), but haven't heard anything else about it since.

^ I would love to know if that apt project was still a go as well as THAT will do a lot for feelings of walking that strip.

It would be nice if there were news coming about the apartments, but lacking that, at least they are helping to support improvements to the aesthetics of the area.

Are they painting it?  Or using projection lighting like the I-77 bridge over Trade St.?

You mean like putting apartments and/or hotel in that massive sea of asphalt and stone? Yea, that would be nice actually... Such a waste of space. They could easily build a 300-400 apartment development with a hotel midrise and incorporate a parking deck that could be shared.

Some believe the apartments proposal was largely a posturing tactic for higher real estate compensation for the grade-separation and/or HOT lanes projects.

The land under the I-277 bridge is a perfect location for a skate park.  The addition of lights and human activity would make the drive into NCMF seem less ominous.
