    I don't usually start a new thread...but I just think we could all give a round of applause to markhollin for posting so many great photos every single morning. Around 4am or so...I start looking for his posts, knowing he's going to have more goodies to show us. This board wouldn't be half the board it is without his input. Thanks so much!

    I'll call these "uptown randos," all taken yesterday along Tryon. I wanted to capture detail on some of the smaller architectural features. BTW, the car is a McLaren 720S Spider – could run you a cool $400K. As always, click on the photo for ultra high-res...may take a few seconds to load.

    Ok! After some practice at home I took the drone downtown. I didn’t get too daring since a helicopter was flying ahead and lots of sirens were coming out. I lifted from several different locations. Hope you enjoy! I hope to get back downtown soon. (Lost some resolution when uploading. Selected “Large” instead of “actual size)

    These showed up on my Facebook this morning. I don't remember having seen these before on our forum. They were shot by a fellow called the Drone Guy this summer. I think he is from Ohio and shoots cities all round the country. These are really good IMO. Anyone remember them?

    I'm still advocating for a Paris-style sidewalk cafe district on 1st Ave facing the river.

    The Lord & Liberty Hotel at 627 2nd Ave. South has released images and diagrams for the repurposing of the 1895-era Geddes Engine Company # 6 Fire House and a new 9 story addition that will be 115 feet tall. From the diagrams, it appears there will be about 80 rooms, along with a restaurant, bar, and meeting rooms. L & L Nashville LLC is the developer and other involved are Blur Workshop (architecture), Hawkins Partners (landscape architecture), Thomas & Hutton (engineering). They will go before Metro Planning Commission's Downtown Code design review committee on Sept 10th to request modifications to zoning for the project that limits that neighborhood to 6 stories.

    Hello everyone! Been following this thread for a while. Thought I might start contributing to it.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Register_of_Historic_Places_listings_in_Mecklenburg_County,_North_Carolina Here are the remaining National Historic Registered buildings in Mecklenburg. (102 listings, 21 are districts/farms/mills/cemeteries, and 5 are already gone. ) All of the other commercial towers (Hotel Charlotte and Independence Building) are already leveled. Hall House was already renovated in the 1980s, so it was substantially updated for codes and is in surprisingly good shape despite being public housing for almost half its use. Tearing down a historic registered tower in reusable shape for low rise stick built apartments is unconscionable. The 2 acre site was supposed to be a renovated 14 story hotel, 14 story residential tower, a larger footprint for the office tower. To swap that for a 6 story matchstick building with 1/4 public housing is exactly what this site does not need. Somewhat lost in this discussion is the fact that North Tryon from 7th to 12th is decaying and dying. Empty restaurant spaces, stalled developments and street life that is almost entirely homeless. The purpose of the investment of 7th @ Tryon project was to infuse the area with new life and balance the decay and blight that is forming in the area. The obsession with the Charlotte Housing Authority to keep this land for its affordable housing at the expense of a much larger redevelopment and the destruction of yet another historic structure will contribute to further decline in North Tryon. If they think 4th Ward and 1st Ward do not already have substantial affordable housing means they haven't done the analysis.

    North, South, East, and West. All done today except for South. The East view you get the stadium but not a whole lot past that in the background.

    "WOW! That's a hotel? Is that a 5-star hotel?", says my son as we drive up Broadway. Pictures don't do this one justice. This is very impressive while driving up Broadway at night

    Some photos from a site visit today. The high-up views are from floor 10 so imagine how good the views will be from twice that high. Got a couple shots from inside the lobby space too.

    A new rendering that includes both 900 Church and 801 Church has been released by Tony Giarratana. Since it includes each tower, I am posting on both threads.

    This is a massive development taking up 7.16 acres of the 11 acres that the Jim Reed family has owned since 1930. The lot is approximately twice the size of Broadwest and 2/3 the size of Nashville Yards. The developer is unknown, but may involve the Reed family. This info came forth in Water and Sewer Availability documents submitted to Metro Water. Here's what is being planned: -1,500,000 sq. ft. of office space (my guess is 2 towers of 30 stories each) - 800 residential units (my guess is two towers of 30 stories each) - 350 room hotel (my guess around 20 stories) - 150,000 sq. ft. of retail - 1,334 seats worth of restaurant space - Retaining the 1920s-era former brick Coca Cola plant that was turned into the Reed Chevrolet showroom/warehouse (2 stories, 159,000 sq. ft.) in the 70s at the SE corner of Church and 16th Ave. North. Yay! - Not listed, but most assuredly part of the plan would probably be at least 3,000 parking spaces (even larger than the 7 level underground space at Broadwest. My guess is this will be in the $1 billion cost range.

    Somewhat strange looking condo project featured in today's Nashville Post by William: https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/residential-real-estate/article/21143024/fall-start-eyed-for-pie-town-condo-project To rise six floors and without a name as yet, the building will sit on what had been two parcels with addresses of 629 and 635 Seventh Ave. S. The project headed up by local developer Meg Epstein will offer 78 units. Up before Planning on Oct. 8.

    I follow “Charlotte Over the Years” on social media and a man named Mark Taylor posted this today. I remember being young and seeing NCNB(BOA) under construction on WBTV’s Live cams. It was so much taller than the rest of the skyline. It’s the building that started my fascination with architecture and infrastructure.
