  2. The Arcade, which is still undergoing massive renovations, has landed its first new tenant, a bar concept by the creators of Cafe Roze and Roze Pony. Industry veterans Julia Jaksic and Eric Lincoln plan to create a chic, intimate gathering space for locals and visitors, creating a sense of community similar to their first two concepts. Located in 1,600 square feet of space at 15B Arcade Alley, the to-be-named bar will open in fall 2023. Guests can expect a big, comfortable bar amid midcentury Italian design, think Milan in the '70s, Jaksic said, who is collaborating with Dryden on design. Currently at Roze Pony, Owen Gibler will lead the bar program, which will take center stage. A small food menu will be available featuring shareables like oysters or a charcuterie selection.

  4. I hate to say this but I'd love to think most of us don't give a rats tail about Nashville or any other city while on this forum. When will Charlotte just be Charlotte, and stop aspiring to be other cities?

  5. The Depot will be a 7 story (4 along Division St.) mixed-use project on the .9 acre triangular site at 600 Division St. It will feature retail space along Division St., some limited underground parking, and possibly some outdoor patios. The developers are Jim and Candace Higgins, who bought the land for $650,000 in 2021. This steep hillside slopes down to the CSX tracks, and is directly north from The Haven, and NE of Albion. Chisel Workshop will be the architect. The team will go before Metro Planning Commission on Jan. 12, 2023 for approval.

  6. This is leasing plan. This Level 1 space is located between the main entrance and the Gantt Museum. The Level B1 space is fronting church between the two parking ingress/egress passages, so basically right in the middle of the Church St facade.

  7. The former YWCA Building at 211 7th Ave. North is 6 stories tall and was built in 1911. It was converted to office space in 1982 (when it was renamed the Jacques-Miller Office Building), and has just completed renovation into a 56 unit apartment structure by GBX Group.

  15. Absolutely - this is why I’m rooting for more towers being constructed in SouthEnd, Dilworth & Midtown. Towers surrounding Uptown will absolutely have the effect of making Charlotte’s Core feel more substantial. We’ve got height on Nashville but they just have more… bc NC has another Major Metropolitan (RDU) area sucking up just as much growth as Charlotte, Tennessee has only 1 …

  16. When the project was first announced I thought they’d have a hard time pulling it off. Seeing this now, feel they’ve done a good job creating an integrated theme, looks like quality design and nice features, it may work, I hope they do well.

  17. Facebook's parent company - Meta - is planning a major expansion to its current footprint in the White Oak Technology Park in eastern Henrico. According to Mike's reporting, plans call for two additional data centers and three auxiliary building. No other details regarding size, etc., were available. According to documents filed with the county, the project is being fast-tracked. WOW! This is definitely another big win for RVA! https://richmondbizsense.com/2022/11/28/facebook-parent-meta-adding-to-henrico-footprint-with-code-named-project-tropical-data-center-development/

  18. Hear me out now, what if we tore down the existing Hawthorne Street Bridge (which isn't all that old) and then rebuilt it? And then we could rebuild it again! Let's just keep rebuilding that same bridge over and over again!!!

  19. In my fantasy land, Bank of America, Truist or Duke Energy would contribute funds to bring hundreds/thousands of affordable *and* low income housing to Levine Land. Of course in coordination with the city. I think that would be best for uptown, breathe life into the neighborhood, help support retail and transit being it has good transit access. Though that would require local officials & agencies to find ways to bring more low-income housing uptown .

  26. Why is it CDOT, NCDOT, and CATS can't seem to accept the idea that a bus stop lane (pull off) would be a good idea at major stops on busy thoroughfares? LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas, Denver...all have them.

  27. The entertainment venue is up and running near the Diamond District and ready to open for business. Especially if you have kids, this honestly looks like a lot of fun. We have a few of these kinds of places particularly in the suburbs around Chicagoland - and my kids LOVED going to them. My daughter in particular loved dragging me there with her to play. It was a lot of fun. From today's Richmond BizSense: https://richmondbizsense.com/2022/11/28/8m-entertainment-venue-the-park-at-rva-opens-this-week/

  29. https://www.ncdot.gov/projects/us-74-express-lanes-i-277/Documents/U-6103-project-handout.pdf It’s just the toll-lanes on independence….it is a known project that I’ve seen discussed in the highway thread (Edit: I lied, I’ve seen the southern section from 485 up to Idlewild but this other section is a continuation of it anyways). Also in the link I provided you can see the typical section between Idlewild and 277 and see that no widening is taking place along the places the silver line is running. The lanes that are currently there are the same as the one portrayed in the typical section. What is happening is that where the busses used to run now will be a toll lane. Likely will have a BRT situation like the planned I-77 BRT on those toll lanes. So…I’m not sure if you’re misinformed, but this doesn’t affect the silver line’s alignment much at all. I doubt that NCDOT would purposefully ignore the SilverLine.

  33. Interesting to say the least. I am guessing purple is parking garages and red are surface lots. From CLT Development twitter courtesy of Paingaroo (not a parrot) @Paingaroo Ever wondered just how much of Uptown is taken up by parking?

  34. Very good news - the Commission of Architectural Review voted on Tuesday to approve BOTH the 8-story apartment building at Madison and Broad (Bank Street Advisors) and Virginia Credit Union's remake of the building that once housed the Bistro (27 W. Broad). Both projects received unanimous approval. The only amendment that the CAR prescribed was that Bank Street add windows to the east-facing façade of the apartment building.

  35. I am happy to report NC 16 is now 4 lanes all the way from Charlotte to I-40. the last stretch through Catawba County that was 2 lanes is now 4. This is now the fastest way it seems to go from Charlotte to Asheville. Photos from Monday. This is an important corridor to I-40 and only has a few traffic lights on the new section.

This is their first addition to their collection of area-specific interactive development maps since they first launched this concept several months ago.
