  6. CATS does not have the staff time nor the development chops to assess actual build-out scenarios. It's not their purpose. These are illustrative renderings. Back several pages ago (189/190), I wrote about the substantial shortcomings of the current Silver line routing, and the impossible assignment CATS has been given to plan/build a transit line as cheaply and with the least political and public fallout possible, while still justifying its need by actually providing "service" meaningful to riders and business. The current meandering route avoids many "win" scenarios, thus encouraging t

  10. Images released for the the 28 story (probably around 310'), 400 unit residential tower that will feature 16,000 sq. ft. of retail/restaurant space, and 400 parking spaces. within an internal and below-grade garage. Mill Creek will seek bonus height modification from the Downtown Code which allows for 15 stories on this location. Architect Cooper Cary has given the exterior design a “folding door” element, similar to what GBT Realty’s ONE22ONE tower, rising on an adjacent site to the north, offers.

  12. Lots more renders, and official heights here: http://maps.nashville.gov/MPC/2021DTC-008-001_plan.pdf It seems that this design was put together in such a way to limit the impact on evening sun on City Lights. Lets see if they have as big an issue with this proposal. Shoutout to MidTenn1 at SSP for pointing me in the right direction.

  13. This site is being purchased by Midas Hospitality out of St. Louis. Will be new to Charlotte brand. Element by Westin (newer concept extended stay brand by Marriott) Don't know how much of existing structure remaining. Architect is RBA Group who I believe did the original proposal, so maybe they were able to reuse most of what exists.

  15. I think 530' is the floor height. The architectural height is easily 60-70 feet more. For comparison, the newest renderings from Duke provide context, as DEC and Duke Plaza are directly across from one another.

  16. I have now updated the map to show the new towers and the approx. locations of them on the map with the images I posed yesterday. Do not take this to the bank as like everything we have seen with the Yards, it can change. The footprints of these towers are just an estimation and we have no idea how this will play out. I just had to do something to fill in the spaces. You can go to the map for further info. I have yet to add the news info and we have yet to find out the architects but we probably knw the answer, GSP.

  21. Just got an update email from the Friends of Queens Park (the giant park on the NS railyard). They mention that they are “actively working to complete” (with CharMeck parks and rec) a “starter park” at the north end of the railyard. This can be done without any cooperation from NS. The rendering below isn’t super clear, but I think the starter park is mostly the planned Sugar Creek Greenway segments. Regardless, I will be excited to see something done to nudge this visionary project forward.

  24. More details on 405 Broadway. - It will be 73 ft. tall at highest point of setback 5th floor. - The archways will be made of cut stone (I will go record as saying I very much like these arches). - Most of the exterior facing Broadway and 4th Ave. South will be brick, with some ceramic tile at ground level.

  25. Enjoyed my first visit to the National African American Music Museum at 5th & Broadway Friday. Was told by the cashier that they have been quite busy attendance-wise since opening a couple months ago. Good crowd while I was there. The exhibits are quite interactive (singing and dancing rooms, build you own jazz and blues songs, etc.). A dozen different film stations. Lots of cool memorabilia. And the ability to download tons of free music of hundreds of various artists is quite unique (and MANY were taking advantage of the opportunities). I would've taken more pics, but was so d

  32. You say that the survival rate is "99.something percent" but you're rounding up. As of today in the US according to the Worldometer count, the rate is actually around 98.21%, which you can arrive at by dividing the total number of reported Covid deaths in the US (626,713) by the total number of reported Covid infections in the US (35,184,671) and subtracting that figure from 1. So you rounded up a little - less than one percentage point in fact- so no big deal, right? In this case, that 'rounding error' accounts for almost 275,000 of the Covid Deaths that have so far occurred in the US.

  35. I like these buildings! They remind of the Ben West building (a bit) and hearken back to L&C (sort of). I thinks they're a great addition to the skyline, xcept that they aren't tall enough. If I can remember, I'll tell Freddie my support for this project, if he comes to a meeting I'm in tomorrow.
