  1. SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    True story. (two followup points: 1) its not my pee and 2) I have always had dogs and love them in the appropriate way)
  2. SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    Design fail adjacent to the rail trail. 1100 South decided to put in a planting strip between their sidewalk and the rail trail. Since its the only grass for what seems like a mile it collects more dog urine than the humane society -- grass is never gonna grow there. (The photo doesnt show it because of the lighting but its mostly mud and straw)
  3. NoDa (N Davidson St Arts District) Projects

    Crescent from the other side of the tracks. The mural caught my eye from Tryon, but the deck will forever be a blight on the new park and the station. (To be fair the new retaining wall for the tracks is pretty bad too)
  4. Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    This was news to me, I certainly hope they can pull it off. The CBJ on the U City neighborhood development plan:

    Hugh McColl on HQ2: and then on HB2: Bids are due on Thursday. from CBJ:
  6. Center City Development Maps

    at a glance, the parcel on 10th st could be a very useful small commercial building next to Intermezzo and help connect the Otts street stuff to Central. If they save the building, the Morgan School parcel in Cherry could be an outrageously cool multifamily. And Dorchester Place in Sedgefield would make a fine multifamily project in an area that sorely needs higher-end MF options. The Stafford Drive site is probably future airport parking...
  7. a few notes about tonight's BLE meeting: They swear up and down that it will open in "March" although there was a great deal of uncertainty about when 36th street will be done (I got the impression that delays with the overpass, new retaining walls and Norfolk Southern will not impact the BLE open date, but they never said that outright) While UNCC IDs will be smartcard enabled as soon as the BLE opens, Smartcards for the public will not be available immediately upon opening. No details were available, but I did not get the feeling that smartcards for the masses would be here quickly. The presentation said trains would run "every 7.5 minutes" but the presenter said "every 10 minutes" The 25th street extension (bridging LSC) should open in "late 2018" 16th st at Parkwood will be slightly realigned (only about 100 feet) to match up with the 16th street blockage across Parkwood. At some point in the future 16th street on the Optimist Park side will be reconnected Parkwood.
  8. Amazon HQ2

    Its been a few years but I knew 4 people who lived in Florida make a special trip here just for frisbee golf. #CltisPrime
  9. and a shower/bath that appears to be designed for a dwarf with a eating disorder (is it even 2 feet wide?)
  10. SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    The site inappropriately known as the Rail Yard this afternoon
  11. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Didn't somebody say something about Vision Zero a few months back? We are moving in the wrong direction....
  12. Charlotte Greenways - The Big Picture

    Don't forget Openstreets on Sunday (roughly OldMeck -- Scaleybark, to the back end of Freedom Park.
  13. plus hollow doors, crappy tile, a home depot ceiling fan, bad light and a mountain view that will get blocked by what may be the dullest building uptwon. They gotta be kidding about the interior finishes.
  14. MLS in Charlotte?

    Interesting news about the Independence and Memorial Stadium from the CBJ: IMO this is good news, although likely too late to help Charlotte with an MLS bid in the next round.
  15. Charlotte Greenways - The Big Picture

    ^ agree. Short of closing a lane the bridge is largely unusable to the majority of bikers. This gap essentially forms a wall between pretty good greenways on the North and South sides of town.
