    Not Just Coffee in 7th St. Market is [opinion] better than Amelies and also local. And you also have Local Loaf in 7th St for pastries. Amelie's turned down invitations from the CRVA to move into that Uptown spot for year(s) before finally trying it out, it wasn't their scene to start with.
  3. That could be Gateway Station on it's own. Who needs a grand building when you have a modern terminal with multiple "gates" like that?
  4. Do you have an active and inclusive neighborhood association? Property ownership is not the only way to affect a neighborhood's well-being. Pride can come from other places and not just from the possibility of financial gain.
  5. Carolina Theater would help

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    I've had a dream about this section of the track. It's going to feel pretty awesome to be in "nature" while on the train (at least for a second). I've always been jealous of these light rail lines: http://www.citytransport.info/Lawn.htm

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Apropos of nothing: We have an East Blvd that becomes West Blvd... not at the intersection of South Blvd (as would make sense) but a block away... but we have no North Blvd. Anyone have any thoughts about how/why this is the case? Just a little curiosity this morning on my part

    American Legion Memorial Stadium Renovation

    Is the green (non rendered?) part outside of the seats getting a concourse or anything? Any other building other than inside the bowl?
  11. I'm pretty sure there isn't a wide enough ROW on the ACW for two tracks (especially at Herrin, 37th, Mercury). Now, if they rebuild the tracks (as is planned eventually to seal the corridor) to it arrives to the NCRR before Craighead, maybe... but I wonder there is enough ROW under the Sugar Creek & Plaza bridges for 2-wide tracks
  12. ^And with the door open for articulated buses, it wouldn't be impossible to imagine "mass"-transit BRT (at least on Independence)

    Wesley Heights Projects

    Really similar to the Ashmont-Mattapan line in Boston (even in demographic): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashmont%E2%80%93Mattapan_High_Speed_Line
  14. What do you give the odds that someday (someday could be 25 years) Pineville will want an extension of the LYNX into town....

    Optimist Park / Belmont Projects

    The trees along Caldwell/Brevard in the LYNX right of way have been cut down. The views from even as far back as Brooks Burgers/Matheson Bridge into Uptown are really amazing now. OP, Villa Heights and NoDa feel so much closer to center city now than they did just a couple months ago.
