  1. Condominium is just a legal definition of describing the separate ownership of the buildings but shared ownership of the land....it doesn't refer to residential in this case.

    FNB Tower 401 S Graham St

    I'd be shocked if not started by year end.
  4. Yes, the building permit for the foundation specified micro-piles.
  5. Final building trade approvals completed in early October. Permits not issued yet.

    Good New Restaurants

    For brisket and burnt ends, do yourselves a favor, take a long lunch on day you can afford an afternoon food coma, and drive up to Concord. Go to The Smoke Pit. Enjoy....

    Metropolitan, Midtown Redevelopment

    I like the divided/protected cycle track on Pearl Park Way.....one day, this will all magically link up to the rail trail, and the LSC Greenway and rail trail will be safely connected.
  9. The Westin was supposed to be about 4 stores taller, and I assume 900+ rooms. It was actually shortened mid construction, due to the fall-off in travel demand during the dot -com recession and 9/11 that both occurred after it broke ground. You can visually see the change, as the notches on the on each end were supposed to be dead center vertically, but now skew a bit higher than midpoint when the project got shortened.

    Crescent Stonewall Station

    Well Crescent knew Tryon Place was coming when they planned Caldwell Station, because, well, Crescent. I can also say with 100% certainly, that Northwood only exists as a high rise because the Whole Foods was signed 1 block away. Therefore those hypothetical change in dynamics aren't realistic. I hope, in general, project net benefits are measured by more than aesthetics along an interstate on ramp.

    The RailYard SouthEnd

    This will have the best sidewalks of any project in South End. All four sides of this block will have: - 8' sidewalks -an additional 8' hardscape (sidewalk with tree wells) - No Planting strip - striped on street parking on all 4 sides

    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    At the risk of "this time it's different"... There have been lots of apartment projects that have been cancelled because of tighter lending standards, rising lumber and labor costs, and concerns from developers about oversupply. Condo construction is non existent, because developers can't use deposits as equity. Most every large office is breaking ground with a large tenant signed, and much higher equity than 2007, and most of the equity is from institutional sponsors that can ride through a down cycle. Also, the tenants here in Charlotte have typically been strong financially (as opposed to tech start ups issuing stock to pay for fancy new spaces) Hotels would be the biggest potential concern in my opinion, but rates and occupancies are at highs, indicating undersupply.
