  1. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    This seems a little odd since they don't allow food/drinks on the trains (or do they and I'm just ignorant of the fact?).
  2. First Ward Urban Village and Parks

    I think the redesign is probably a good thing. It will hide the top of the deck and add more apts. to First Ward. On top of that, I know lots of people on UP will be happy this is no longer stick-built. I'll be honest, I'm glad they will be taller. With all that said, the part that bothered me was the fact it was going to take until the 2nd or 3rd quarter to get these started. I assume the redesign has been happening behind the scenes to cause the delay we've already seen. It's probably just my ignorance, but it seems as though it wouldn't take months and months to design a basic apt. building where I assume the floor plans will be repeating in many cases. Since I'm no architect, I'll just assume I'm wrong to feel that way.
  3. I couldn't agree more. I would never fight that kind of traffic or fight a parking garage even if I honestly did have to walk 3 miles. I try to walk about that far everyday anyway.
  4. I'd be impressed if people could go with the intent of a post and not the wording.
  5. Well if it's a 3 mile walk for you why would you be parked there anyway?
  6. The Bad News Report

    I think tickets are hard to come by too.
  7. The Good News Report

    Make of this what you want. It's another one of those lists. At the end of the day I would rather be at the top of one of these then at the bottom. Forbes - Best for Business
  8. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    What are the chances of this making through the rezoning process? And, is there anticipated pushback from the residential neighborhood? Somehow this feels like something that will draw criticism for its height.

    I'm profoundly bad at "reading" these types of plans but it looks pretty good to me.

    I was just about to post this too.

  12. SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    My guess here is the order was placed back when the schedule said they would be far enough along on this location that it would be time to start landscaping. They may have pushed that timeframe just a little in order to plant the new trees in the fall. When the decision was made to put the brakes on this location, someone forgot to cancel the tree order.

  14. I'll take that bet! It has to be me when it comes to insider knowledge in the development community.
  15. And don't forget about Missmylab. He seems to know a lot too, with less regard for protecting sources.
