  3. Here in Dallas. As it is the 4th largest metropolitan area in the country and very fast growing. The DART light rail system is the largest in the country 65 stations along 4 lines totally 93 miles. Both downtown Dallas and Fort Worth are connected by commuter rail and both downtowns are connected to DFW Airport. Their system is very impressive linking major universities and major hospitals to downtown and to the suburbs. Lots of transit oriented development even out in the far reaches of the sytem with new apartments and office buildings being built by the stations. The office vacancy ra

  5. The grading plans for the office tower were approved yesterday. Looks like we are losing the sidewalks along Lafayette/8th Ave S during construction, but keeping the sidewalk along the roundabout. Document is here: https://epermits.nashville.gov/download.aspx?id=626292

  6. Out in Dallas this week and rode DART from a far flung suburb North Carrollton into downtown Dallas and beyond. Their system is quite impressive as it is the largest light rail system in the country. 93 miles 65 stations 4 lines plus commuter rail from downtown Dallas to Ft Worth and both cities downtowns have rail access to DFW Airport. The Green line goes by Love Field but you must take a shuttle bus to the airport as the station is ways off. Plus commuter rail the A Train to Denton. Connects 2 major hospital complexes which is great Parkland the Baylor hospital complexes. Their

  8. Concord Sky in Toronto has recently proposed will become the second tallest residential building in the city. Standing at 95 floors (981ft/299m) and approximately 1100 total residence. The tower will become the 4th tallest structure in the city when it is completed goal of 2026.

  12. I think it would look better if it were surrounded by other tall buildings. There's another tower in Houston very very similar in design/vintage (may also be a SOM building). As it sits on capitol hill, it looks stark and apart from the rest of downtown. And after the corporate owner at the time (National Life) demolished the two neo-classical towers adjacent to this site, it was never going to be the same. Shame! Someone told me years ago that Nashville's "old guard" (aka Belle Meade) was the very cabal who started/ran National Life (NLT) for the better part of the 20th Century. That

  17. None of those are the factor eandslee is referencing - it’s the gross receipts tax for professional services which is nearly triple in the city compared to the counties. It can make a big difference and definitely is a factor in location decisions.

  20. Random shower thought: CATS should consider using the ACWR line for commuter/regional rail. This is a baseless assumption but since the ACWR company is smaller, and the fact that there is very low traffic on this line, maybe they might be more open to allowing passenger rail on their line than Norfolk South and the O-Line. You could place platforms/stations at Eastway, Sharon Amity, Harris, Harrisburg/Pence Road, and I-485/Albemarle, along with a stop at the Gateway Station. Expansions to Midland could also be a possibility if Cabarrus is onboard.

  21. I don't know about that specific question, but I have gotten code enforcement involved for trash and high weeds on that property. I think everybody who passes by there should make a complaint via the CLT+ just as if they were a Karen homeowner in a bossy HOA. I've gotten to the point where I ascribe malice to Levine's inaction on this and their many other properties. Because it's either malice or incompetence, right? And surely nobody could be this incompetent.

  23. Ouch, it is not just triple but also kicks in $400k sooner than Henrico's. Given the rate, it seems surprising that we have such large law and advertising industries. The business personal property tax rates are surprisingly close (Richmond 3.7% vs Henrico 3.5%).

  27. That building was designed as a two story masonry structure. I do hope they hired a good engineer to confirm it can hold what’s going to happen on that top level.

  29. WECT (local NBC affiliate) is reporting that this would be a $700 MILLION dollar project. This would definitely overwhelm downtown Wilmington, but I don't think it's too far out of line for the other side of the river. Will definitely be an interesting proposal to follow, should know a bit more after info from the community meeting next week is released.

  32. I think the commercial/office space will come. The pandemic has kiboshed a lot of that right now. That's something that makes me wonder about the whole redevelopment of the Public Safety block downtown (with the 20-story VCU Health-anchored tower) - how much of an impact will the pandemic have? As you said - residential is much more guaranteed these days. And obviously developers must know something because they have been pouring in, what, maybe at least $1 billion in constructing new residential buildings - and the pace seems to have actually picked up in the back half of this year, giv

  38. Does Low-Rise priority get density done faster over a wider area? South End will likely never be this, but thought I'd look for images of density without high-rises (See below, first image). Such images may be a relic of the past and infeasible in 2021, but worth a look anyway and perhaps will inspire a slightly different way of thinking among some of you. I know many of you obsessed with towering structures and how they look from the highway, but I'd be happy seeing the remaining lots in center city filled in with images like this as opposed to all the time-intensive and capital-in

  41. For some reason, I keep thinking that this building would be impressive if it had a crown. Maybe something gothic, I’m not sure. Just a stately crown, with proper lighting of course.

  42. In my opinion, when you have a skyline that’s as compact as Charlotte’s and you have 2-3 iconic towers that stand out like Charlotte has, it’s harder to make an impact on the skyline in pictures. Charlotte’s “ infill development” is probably best felt at the street level, just my opinion.
