    The weather actually cleared up for a little bit last night! Definitely ready for some sunny days though.

    I went out for the first time in ages last night, there was a party at The End with some deejays I wanted to catch. I let the promoter use one of my mixers, so I dropped by a little early during load in to drop the thing off. It's been a while since I'd been in The End with the lights on and I remembered how much absolutely adore that space. This is one of the bits of Nashville that need to be protected at all costs, imo. The place is punk AF and I have way too many good memories there - rest in peace to the former sound engineer (and bag man) Brad Baker. We used to do a party there years ago, Strictly Social, a drum n bass monthly and we had a great run. Most of our parties were at The End.

    Yeah. I’ve been obsessed with these traffic cams since you first linked them. Whoever was on the stick today, had some great closeups too. here’s some others I’ve grabbed over past few days ....

    That first pic almost doesn't even look like Charlotte. Seeing only a small section of the skyline in one shot makes the city feel even bigger. Link

    widening and addition of express lanes along I-485 south is moving fast. Photos today from I-485 between Matthews and Ballantyne.

    a couple of us should go in and ask for a tour of the apartments then say the landscaping is off and does not look well kept and then mention we are heading over the Catalyst or Element or Museum Tower. I bet we would see some changes.

    It was built with the assumption something would be built next to it. If the only place you can see it is a parking lot, bring on its blocking. As soon as we remove all or most surface lots, we will finally start to see some serious verticality and removal of old parking decks.

    Not speculating as the gravity of uptown Charlotte has shifted south so has the office developers. I think the project should be announced soon as the rumblings are increasing the real estate market from what I hear.

    Dear Greystar. as the owner of the Ascent a beautiful apartment tower in uptown Charlotte (which has really grown on me) I know you can make this minor improvement. Please get some plants that can grow in your planters and I know if this building was in your hometown of Charleston you would not allow these dead weeds or plants to remain. You are the largest owner and manager of apartments in these great United States and I know you can do better on this your premier property in the Charlotte market. You spent a considerable amount of money on this 33 story tower so I know you have it to do some minor landscaping upgrades. Concerned Charlottean, KJ photos from today. Remember your rendering with lush (live) vines cascading down and hiding the garage levels I do.

    Does Spectrum's project on Mint & Carson count as announced, since I wrote a one paragraph blurb about it once in Charlotte Magazine? I know of at least 3, maybe 4 more high rises in South End that haven't formally been announced yet. This doesn't include Vantage's tower, or anything at District Dilworth.

    Might have a chance of surpassing Lowes, but we will see.

    Seems odd to cover the guitars mural with a printed banner. Rather insulting to the mural’s artist.

    For twenty years the Diamond was owned and run by identical twins Ralph and Robert James. Yes, another twin restaurant. One in the front and one in the kitchen, usually. The Diamond had all booth tables with a few spinning stools at the counter. The booths had simple tables with a single leg at the middle of the table at the server side. I was in the restaurant two times where someone kicked the single leg and it collapsed the table and sent all the meals and dishes to the floor in a clatter in the smallish business. http://diamondcharlotte.com/history

    Charlotte's identity is "new south". Charlotte has some good older neighborhoods, but if more history is what you're looking for, we aren't too far from Winston, Asheville, Wilmington, Charleston, Savannah, etc. People need to quit picking Charlotte apart in that regard. We are in the south. There is old history everywhere.

    Not sure why the 2nd building over at AvidXchange is not underway yet but will contact an exec I know there. And those Cadence apartments are growing on me.

    IT is getting used quite a bit now. Today. Mi casa su casa. The MOST anticipated high rise in 2020 and no one can tell me for sure the actual height and number of floors I have heard from 39-41 to 632 to 661 feet tall.

    @DJIII and I got notified about this 3930 Gallatin Avenue - 4-stories, urban development. Building against the street and parking in rear (finally!!!). No count on units yet. The parcels are still owned by the eastminister church, so they may be waiting on variances prior to finalizing the purchase Here is a description from a resident who attended a meeting and posted to the East Nashville Urban Design Facebook page.... They plan to build an office condominium where professionals (lawyers, architects, etc.) will buy office space. No retail is planned. They want a "legacy design with brick type exterior" and there will be 4th floor communal space for residents. It will be run by a condo board. They are going to the Board of Zoning Appeals on January 16 to request two variances. The current MULA zoning allows a four story building with the 4th floor setback. (like Riverside Village). They want a height variance for the fourth floor setback. They also want a decrease in the required parking from 94 to 72 spaces. The only ingress/egress from the building will be on Sunnymeade because Public Works doesn't want any driveways on Gallatin. The developer (Nathan Weinberg) and the architects (Smith Gee Studio) are Inglewood/East Nashville residents. They will build a wider sidewalk with a green strip in the front with a setback for future transit development. The building will be flush with the street with parking in the rear. There will be a green barrier in the rear between the parking and the next house. Site Plan: Concept imagery: Elevation views: Snapshot from Google Maps:
