  1. If you're referring to where the tracks are torn up by the Antiquity Harris Teeter, it's been like that since August.

    Aren't we still expecting a 300' NAI tower at 3rd and Baldwin over in Midtown? It's rezoning was approved back in summer.

    Honeywell is in for a surprise
  5. Unless I'm mistaken, there's still a state law in effect that caps county-level sales taxes, and Mecklenburg County (as well as others) are at that cap currently.
  6. I could see DOLR and Silver line moving forward in that time frame. DOLR is basically shovel ready and trying to pull their funds together now. The Mecklenburg planning department is actively using the Silver line preferred route to set aside easements in long-term preparation for that project.

    I feel like crappy bowl attendance is an annual story, the variable being "how crappy."

    CROSS CHARLOTTE TRAIL UPDATE CROSS CHARLOTTE TRAIL SEGMENTS (managed by the City of Charlotte) 7th Street to 10th Street Design for this project is 70 percent complete. The real estate acquisition phase will start sometime in 2019. During this phase, the City acquires the property rights needed to build and maintain the improvements that were identified during the design phase. City real estate agents will reach out to affected property owners with information regarding the City's real estate acquisition process. View the proposed alignment. South Charlotte Connector This project received construction bids in September 2018, and the contract will be reviewed and considered by City Council during an upcoming Council meeting. Construction is expected to start in January 2019. Brandywine Road to Tyvola Road On Nov. 19, large signs (pictured above) were placed at two locations along the alignment of the trail: at the intersection of Brandywine Road and Woodlawn Road and at the intersection of Park Road and Selwyn Avenue. The signs are intended to build awareness and excitement around the segment, which is expected to start construction next summer. Design is almost finished, and right-of-way acquisition, which started in May 2018, should be done by the end of the year. Real estate agents have been working with affected property owners to acquire the property rights needed to build and maintain the trail. The design team consists of the City project team, Kimley+Horn (design consultant) and Crowder Construction (construction manager). Together, they continue to work toward completing the design, managing escalating construction costs and developing both the project schedule and construction plan. North Davidson Street to Matheson Avenue Design plans are 90 percent complete. Funding is not available at this time to advance the project beyond the design phase. This project may be included in a future bond referendum and will proceed when new funding is allocated. LITTLE SUGAR CREEK GREENWAY SEGMENTS (managed by Mecklenburg County) Huntingtowne Farms Park to I-485 Design for the section of the trail that runs through Huntingtowne Farms Park is complete and is being reviewed by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and permitting is underway. That section is expected to be completed in late 2019. For the segment that runs from Huntingtowne Farms Park to I-485, the majority of stream work and grading has been complete, and paving has been put in north of Sharon Road West. This section is expected to be complete in the spring of 2019. I-485 to the President James K. Polk State Historic State Design is complete on this segment and permitting continues. A trail connecting this segment to the McMullen Creek Greenway will be phased separately. Both segments will likely be constructed in phases as construction easements and real estate acquisitions are finalized. President James K. Polk State Historic Site to the SC state line Design and permitting for this segment is almost complete. This segment, along with the segment from I-485 to the Polk site, will likely be constructed in phases after construction easements and real estate acquisitions are finalized.

    First Ward Urban Village / North Tryon Vision Plan

    Based on what @smitalb said, I interpreted the problem as being a construction issue. An "engineer sign-off" sounds like signing off on special inspections. Structural materials, like steel and concrete, are subject to special inspections by a third party that's not affiliated with the design team, construction team, or owners. Basically it's an unbiased inspector that focuses on things like correct concrete mix. If the design engineer is not satisfied with the results of the special inspection testing, they would not sign off on the SI report, thus making the professional declaration that the deck was built per their requirements. I'm drawing a hell of a lot of conclusion from scant information, but it would explain a lot.

    Wouldn't the middle of an active runway be a dangerous place for a tower?
