  1. Not apartments. This is a doggy daycare facility. Just beginning to move dirt for the apartments which are on Suttle Ave across from Mecklenburg County Land Use and Environmental Services building.
  2. Anyone know what's being built at the corner of W. Morehead and Wilkinson? Grading complete and and curbing being installed.

    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    All the buildings were red, white, blue for flag day. It's back to all white now, but the fading of light intensity is getting better.

    Ascent Uptown - 33 stories (3rd and Poplar)

    The plants don't help. The developer needs to take down the parking deck scrim, paint the deck walls black so they recede, and reinstall the scrim. A couple gallons of paint would make this project look much better. It would make this building an #uptownstunner

    Plans for a Charlotte Zoo

    The Brookhill Apartment property at Remount & S Tryon would be ideal. It's about 25 acres. Walking distance to light rail & rail trail, just off I77, and is bordered by Southside community park. Maybe a quasi Meck County/private partnership could get the job done. The property owner can get a tax write off by donating the property, with naming rights of course, to the County.

    Why can't we get something like the new Hargett Place "brownstones" in Raleigh?
  7. No mention of retail? Damn shame, this area has such potential for a stroll district.

    Another bar/restaurant bites the dust

    I went there once. Really bad experience too. Our order somehow vanished and after an hour of waiting they offered up an app. Food was OK, but saw no reason to ever return.

    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    Fencing and demo signs are up. Looks like several quads are going to be razed. Anyone know what's going on?

    SouthPark neighborhood Projects

    Site work started for the next phase of Morrison at SouthPark. Is Grubb doing this project or did it get sold? Plans have changed so many times I'm not sure what is going in -- apartments or senior housing.
  11. Possibly the site across from the Open Kitchen? Construction fencing is up.
  12. I heard it was a Charlotte Pipe & Foundry training facility.

    Charlotte Housing Authority project. From their website: Park & Marsh Senior Apartments This $15.7 million construction project is on a 2.23 acre site at the corner of Park Road and Marsh Road in South Charlotte. The project will include 92 one-bedroom units of multi-family housing for seniors (55 and older) with incomes at or below 60% of the area median income. The rents will be subsidized by the Housing Choice Voucher Program. This independent living community for active seniors will be situated in the heart of Charlotte and encompass indoor and outdoor amenities including a fitness center, seating areas, storage areas, multipurpose room, garden plots and a balcony. Horizon Development Properties, Inc. has been awarded 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits and Housing Trust Fund dollars for the development of this project. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2015.

    Dilworth Projects (Kenilworth, Morehead, East)

    What's happening with the apartments at the corner of E Morehead and Kenilworth? No noticeable change to this site in months. Has construction stalled?
  15. This plan isn't going to fly. It ignores the two biggest assets of this property -- the 100 year old oaks and the views of the Dowd House. I like the rear alley idea, but this should be a row of town homes with rear loading garages and porches facing the park in the front or built as zero lot-line single family homes. I like the density, but this is an all around bad plan. The neighborhood will fight this petition as drawn.
