  6. I saw this a few days ago and was pleased that they finally connected Nashville up to Louisville and on up to Chicago. Also including it as a Regional/Core Express route, which is the 2nd highest level of service, is very welcome. The report also included some pretty exciting growth statistics for Nashville. It looks like the population basically doubles and the pop. growth rate is almost 70% from 2015 to 2055! Hopefully this positions Nashville well for big investments in rail.

  13. It is. This is impressive!!! Durham has the potential to be the No. 2 city in NC. I hope that this rises soon. The demand for housing in downtown Durham is significant. Here's another article about Austin Lawrence's new tower for the South Bank site. This is REALLY NICE!!! https://www.newsobserver.com/news/business/article255127787.html

  14. Attached are several pictures from Friday night's Historic Downtown Salisbury Ghost which blends the paranormal with the rich history of the city. It is a year round tour which is proving very popular. Picture 1 is the 1912 Wallace-Grubb Building now a mixed use residential called The Plaza Picture 2 is the oldest commercial building in the city which was build in the 1790's and is still in use for ground level retail Picture 3 is the Meroney Theater which was opened in 1905 and currently serves as a performing arts center. There is also a tunnel that use to connect to the

  16. Looking at the Sub-district zoning for this address, it looks as if they can go 12 by rights and 16 max in bonus height since they front Division. Now I don’t know if they have to have a Division street address or not to qualify. That will be a sticky subject. Depending on the way this plays out the garage levels may not count against the overall floor count. So they could in effect go up to around 28 by maxing the bonus height. This also sits outside the MDHA design review purview as well.

  17. At the very least, this needs to move to the Coffee House. Or moderators need to issue warnings to cease and desist. The poster is clearly not dumb nor is everything he is saying totally wrong (just overwhelmingly so). Nonetheless, no one is coming to UP to see this. Take it to Reddit where it will be appreciated...

  19. Durham reminds me of a mini version of SouthEnd in Charlotte. It has a lot of potential. This project and Hines' new ATC project will really inject a lot of life into the Bull City. This is a big site.

  21. Yeah, I think that's the problem. You open a thread to see progress on a certain project but then there's pictures and a full page of discussion of old buildings that used to be where the new building is being built. As Smeagol said, there's a thread that fits this kind of information.

  26. I rode the Blue line today for the first time! Almost it’s full length to get to the university. It was interesting to see the projects in person versus images…they really are massive the developments are especially in south end. I’m usually not in SouthEnd much, but it seemed very nice and vibrant this Saturday morning. It was nice seeing people run and walk on the rail trail in person. Since im usually not around there it may seem silly that I say these things, but looking at it live or even actually being there is something words can not always describe in full detail. Quite a few people on

  27. That one is tough. The building to be converted has to have the right qualities, mostly geared towards accommodating the increased water/sewer needs both in the core and on each floor (such as excess ceiling height). Other residential-specific services/features, such as garbage chutes and opening windows, are more or less a bust without major changes to the building. And even if the building is a good fit, the conversion is generally pretty expensive, so it requires very high land values to work out financially. It seems like the best option is to mark out a bunch of roads on each floor i

  30. Polk intended his home and grounds to be a museum for hundreds of years to come. Squabbling family members fighting over inheritance after Mrs. Polk died managed to persuade a local judge to sell the property, demo the home, dig up the President and Mrs. Polk (!!), have them re-interred on an obscure location on Capitol Hill and have an apartment building built. The apartment building, Polk Flats, was actually an architectural gem, too (though should never have been built there), was demolished after a half-century and an urban motor lodge has been in its place for nearly 7 decades.

Today's CBJ "City Leaders see more events ahead with opening of $126.9M Charlotte Convention Center expansion" by Jennifer Thomas Excerpt: "The city of Charlotte and the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority marked the official opening of that project today, after nearly two years of construction. It stands to make Charlotte more competitive for meetings and conventions — a nearly $300 billion industry — with increased capacity, accessibility and flexible spaces." ...

  35. Just looked that up and wow that’s pretty tall/impressive. LU needs a tower like this that would provide 24/7 foot traffic in the area (Once retail starts to fill). If BOA stadium was going to be permanent and not move, I’d say turn the last large plot at LU into like a stadium village with bar and restaurants and other entertainment venues. I envision a smaller and more pedestrian friendly epicentre-esque structure with a few towers built on top. But with the possibility of the dome being built on pipe factory land, might not be a good idea.

  37. Found a neighborhood today that is new to me, McCrorey Heights. South of Oaklawn, east of the Vest Water Plant and Beatty* Ford Road. Altogether pleasant area and nearly unknown to many of my peers, I would presume. *Beatty/Beattie/Beatty's/Beatties are variations I have seen. I cannot say which is the most correct. All have been used for a long time and are interchangeable, no distinction about proper spelling 250 years ago. This is a representative home. Some a bit larger, some smaller but nearly all brick, well maintained, gracious lawns. Just right for a family.

  39. There is a group including Bill Barnett that is looking at developing the current County offices site on N Church St. across from the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium. There would be a convention center ( 6 million appropriated in the General Assembly fund), restaurants and housing/hotel potential. Possibly a sky bridge connecting to the current Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium. This could be an awesome development and significantly change that entryway into downtown.

The Lee & Wrangler Lounge / bar and food facilities are very upscale. If you haven't been to see Wicked better get tickets fast. There are five more shows....tonight, Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening, Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening. Sunday's tickets are sold out and only some higher dollar seats are available Saturday. Fox 8 news on the increase in business in downtown Greensboro due to the Tanger Center and in particular t
