    SouthPark neighborhood Projects

    I know there's been plans to redevelop the Colony Apartments but wasn't sure if anyone has seen these renderings. Looks interesting, I wonder what kind of retail will go here: https://www.charlotteagenda.com/148497/major-redevelopment-planned-for-the-colony-in-southpark/

    What's the status of the highway lighting project? I was in town recently and noticed 77 south seemed mostly fixed but only till slightly passed Remount Rd. It's still pitch black through uptown and around 277.

    My only gripe with this project is why they aren't adding a third general purpose lane to 74. They are adding from Rea Rd. to NC 16 but why not just extend it to 74?

    SouthPark Mall

    This is good news considering the recent announcements at the mall. Although a little over priced, I always thought Club Monaco would be a great fit for Charlotte, so still holding out for that one day. Where is Zara though?!

    True. I'd mostly like to see more of this on the stretch of 77 near Uptown. I don't mind the trees otherwise

    Nice. I wish we had more buildings up against our major highways... make it feel more urban. I know some people love the trees though!

    Just found my answer Looks like the project to fix the interstate lighting got delayed until the end of summer. https://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/thousands-of-charlotte-area-interstate-lights-still-not-fixed/723735364

    What's going on with the highway lights? I'm visiting my parents for a few days and I can't believe how many lights are still not working across 77, 277 and the somewhat recently widened stretch of 485 in south Charlotte. I thought they were fixing the lights across the metro area, does anyone know if that project still in progress? This has always been a huge pet peeve of mine. I've visited a lot of places, and NCDOT by far is the worst. Compared to other places, there aren't even that many lights to maintain to begin with. The highways are just so dark here.

    SouthPark Mall

    All I want is a Zara and a Club Monaco. I feel like these are realistic within the next 5 years. There's no Zara between DC and Atlanta, and Charlotte makes the most sense if they were to open a store I think. There is a Club Monaco in Charleston though. As for the store leaving SouthPark for South End, I'm going to guess The North Face.

    Anybody know what's going on with the 485 and Independence Boulevard toll lane projects? They were supposed to start in 2017 but I guess are delayed because of the 77 toll lane debacle? Those are different though because 485 includes adding a general purpose lane in addition to the toll lanes from Rea Rd to Independence and the bus lanes on Independence are already restricted and would just be converted.
  11. Sorry for not being familiar but what is this project? I'm assuming it's track work related to Gateway but that looks like a station ?

    The Palmetto Moon store is disappointing. I really wish a Club Monaco and Zara would open, and then I'd be happy!

    It looks like they are relocating that ramp maybe? In order to add the express lane ramp?

    Anyone else find it odd that there are plans (in 20 years or so, ha) to widen I-77 from NC 150 in Mooresville to I-40 in Statesville with general purpose lanes? Why would they widen it there but not through North Mecklenburg and Southern Iredell County? If they just added one general purpose lane + the toll lanes there would be less opposition I think. http://crtpo.org/PDFs/Prioritization/P5_0/P5.0_HighwayProjects_Map.pdf Also, a lot of these projects should be in construction now, not in 2045...

    https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2018/01/08/bold-predictions-changes-likely-for-planned-toll.html I don't pay so I can't see the article, but I know after the consultant analyzed the project, there's ideas floating around such as scrapping the toll lanes completely or converting one of them to a general purpose lane. I wouldn't be opposed to the second option... three general purpose lanes in a growing, populated area is not an outrageous request. So I guess between 277 and 485 there would be three general purpose and two toll lanes, from 485 to Catawba three general purpose and one toll lane, and then from Catawba Ave to Mooresville no toll lanes, just three general purpose lanes? Interested to see what becomes of this because it's delayed the 485 toll lane project too. I'm not advocating for Atlanta style freeways, but every major highway around Charlotte should have at least three general purpose lanes before toll lanes become an option.
