    The Panorama Tower is really rising and going to be so tall compared to others in the area and I think it is on a hill too. https://businessnc.com/panorama-holdings-developing-14-story-mixed-use-building-in-ballantyne/ Ballantyne Rising!

    found the rendering of the apartment tower and it does showing some stick built apartments wrapped around the deck. Miscellaneous Ballantyne photos from my walk in the "park". In the new post Covid 19 world and new Ballantyne Reimagined project this place is going to BOOM again. another rendering of the apartment tower and 11 story office building underway. Front side.

    This may be under our radar (or I may have missed it). Office building going up at Old Pineville and Griffith. Easily walkable to Tyvola station. I would be very pleased to see portions of station adjacent Old Pineville be transformed into boutique office, much like we are seeing on Brevard. We have been waiting a LONGGGGG time for this type of development down here.

    Lots of new lighted ped crossings on South Blvd. First is at Macs/Southbound (which was open again), second photo is at the Soth end of Atherton. There was a third down around Tyvola (I think), and its possible I missed another. They are good additions, but only a minority of drivers understand how they work. They will only be helpful if drivers see them as traffic calming devices, the South blvd race track needs to go away. Bonus: The condos at Leather and Lace are a remarkable transformation (without much really changing).

    Ballantyne Corporate Office Park puts the park in office park. Decided to walk around there and there were plenty of other people doing the same and even saw someone spreading a picnic blanket near the Bull statues. Anyway the new 11 story office building is getting 2 shades of glass greenish and blue. The apartment tower is rising and there is some wood frame units around the garage evidently in the backside. Was not aware of that. KJ your Ballantyne park walker and walk by photographer even with my bad camera.

    Today this evening from Facebook BNA. Our new Concourse D is getting closer and closer to completion! What does the new gate seating look like? You might say it’s “under wraps” right now, but you’ll see it in mid-July. #BNAVision #BiggerBetterBNA #FlyNashville The view from Gate D1. Can’t wait to see Southwest Airlines there in less than a month! #BNAVision Gate D6 at BNA’s new Concourse D. Not too much longer until the first flights take off from Gates D1-D6... #BiggerBetterBNA

    Parking deck today. Some of the first floor concrete pillars for the tower site (I think) just north of the deck are in as well. The Beacon Morehead street project flew up, I think this will as well.

    Yes. The first game I saw in the Pyramid was a Celtics 111 - 110 victory over the Grizz back in 2003. I grew up a Sixers fan despising both the Lakers and Celtics...meandered a bit to the Bulls in the 90s, but I found a true fandom for the Grizzlies. Same as well for the Titans...I dropped my nearly two decade love for the Eagles like hot garbage when the Oilers came...both were dreams come true (home state NFL and NBA franchises).

    ^ IMO, Yes. At least regionally (which I would agree with for Jax as well). Nationally it may be more of a stretch, as to common non-skyscraper fans there are few they recognize outside of the twin towers, empire state, chrysler, Sears Tower, John Hancock, US Bank (LA), Transamerica's of the nation, Regionally for recognition I think of buildings such as Key Tower, AT&T, US Steel Tower, BOFA Corp etc... Although in reading your comment a second time, most of the examples provided are actually non-buildings at least in the traditional highrise sense (Golden Gate, Hollywood sign, Eiffel Tower (Tokyo tower, CN tower to add along those lines...),The Arch, Space needle). If the question in that regard were to be rephrased as "landmark" instead of building, I would agree that we do not have that signature recognized landmark that resonates "Charlotte".

    Supposedly there is a large financial company with a presence in this market already that needs or wants the bigger building. So the odds are good I would say but who knows.

DWUA uses base population figures, derived from official census and estimates data, to develop basic year population estimates within the confines of built-up urban areas. These figures are then adjusted to account for population change forecasts, principally from the United Nations or the various national statistics bureaus. ... The preferred source for built-up urban area population and land area is directly provided by national statistical authorities. However, few nations provide this information. The best alternative to official built-up urban area from national statistical authorities is now from small area population grids. A review of the available sources has found the Commission Global Human Settlement (GHS2015) 250 meter database to be appropriate for the purposes of Demographia World Urban Area pop. estimation. ... DWUA applies a generally consistent definition to built-up urban areas. Urban footprint data is reported without regard to political boundaries that are generally associated with metropolitan areas or sub-national jurisdictions. ... An urban area is best thought of as the “urban footprint” --- the lighted area (“city lights”) that can be observed from an airplane (or satellite) on a clear night."

    It looks like I made a mistake. Yo Diaz! your post was the original with the rendering. Sorry about that. Still damn nice building. Can't wait for it to be in our skyline. The change is going to be so dramatic in the next few years.

    Lincoln Property Co. has landed initial permits for Phase I of the massive mixed-use project they are doing with Ryman Hospitality at the NE corner of the Briley Parkway/McGavock Pike intersection. It will include 296 apartments. They also received at $39 million loan from Santander Bank for the construction.

    We can’t conflate these two things. Although equally tragic, murder committed by an officer of the law sworn to serve and protect is more egregious. However, that does not mean that murder of innocent people by any perpetrator should be met with less than equal outrage. Systemic racism absolutely is a major problem and perpetuates much of this violence through suppression of opportunities for people of color (and other minorities - let’s not forget the LGBTQIA+ community, including those who also happen to have a darker skin tone or different hair texture), but it doesn’t absolve anyone of their personal responsibility to be a decent human being. No excuses. Politicizing our problems only makes them worse. We need to stop blaming each other and instead start learning from one another; come to the table for courageous conversations without fear of judgment or repercussions; recognize that, as imperfect humans, none of us are completely part of the problem nor totally part of the solution; and, most importantly, respectfully hold each other accountable for achieving the progress we all want and need to heal.

    Introducing the 'Outlier'.......This is a new project - it was introduced to City Council on Monday and will now go before the Planning Commission next week. It contains only 29 'units' but each unit contains 5-6 bedrooms in a sort of co-living setup in which the rooms are leased out individually but everyone in each unit shares a single kitchen I think. Interior detail aside, I think the massing for this building and its location along the Boulevard would be great. This is at 1101 North Arthur Ashe Blvd right beside Starucks Coffee.
