  1. OK guys, Here is the map I have been working on over the past couple of weeks. There is a ton of stuff on here and it is still a work in progress with a lot of research still to be done. If you can offer any help that would be very helpful especially for the purple markers that are listed as research. I have a lot more work to do on it and the research takes the longest because I have to find the year or approximate year built the name of the project and a photo or image. I will add more as time goes on including architects, number of residential units, number of floors e

  4. I believe his anti-streetcar stance is partially a product of it being paid for outside the .5 cent transit sales tax. Art Pope (and his opinion machine) is vehemently opposed to TIF financing (and I suspect local improvement districts also) for urban projects, I suspect that they see the streetcar as possibly the tip of a TIF iceberg.

  5. Looks like it's state owned, remember this is the property that Mica proposed as the future Greyhound terminal. Whatever happened to that? And to get us back on the topic (before we get in trouble for being too far off): Do you think that RIDA is talking with those who are developing around Central Station? (I imagine with the city as a go between so that no ones full hand is reveled) I mean +1, the Greyhound station, that giant tower that was at one time proposed for the :08 property (with bottom floor retail opening onto Gertrude's Walk if I remember correctly (it's a bit harder these

  6. Its about LRT and Detroit, but it talks about some of the reasons center lane is in demand for rapid transit.

  8. I thought that lot between the tracks and Garland was a pond for FDOT and the I-4 widening.

  9. I can and will say (proudly) that I did not vote for Art Pope--er-- I mean, Pat McCrory for governor. This is what we can expect for the next four years.

  10. May not be a huge thing, but to me it seems center stations would have pedestrians only cross a couple of lanes either way while side stations would have pedestrians cross 4 to 5 lanes to get to the other side.

  12. ^ I agree that lots of product is coming online very quickly -- and Southend in particular has the look of possible disaster (much like the overbuilding that occurred in University City in the late 1990s / early 2000s). However, most projections suggest that metro Charlotte will add around 40,000 people per year over the next decade. If you assume that just 10% of those folks are young professionals who would like to live in an increasingly fashionable urban environment then we are looking at the absorption of 2,000-3,000 units per year from migration alone (which is roughly the number of new

  13. That is what bothers me the most. The city's master plan is supposed to establish a vision and guidelines for future development. It's as if no attention was paid to the master plan. Here's the excerpt I think you're referring to: http://www.richmondgov.com/PlanningAndDevelopmentReview/documents/PlansDowntown/Rich_Ch4_080509_lores.pdf The following pages in the plan even describe the site as "a crucial vista" and provide conceptual renderings. My question is: what the hell happened? So disappointed.
