  1. Myers Park / Eastover Projects

    Sad thought. I was sort of hoping that the extra space would eliminate the need for the 185,000 sq ft building they proposed on Randolph between Caswell and Colonial. That rezoning petition was withdrawn, and I never heard why.
  2. Myers Park / Eastover Projects

    ^ much bigger than the building they announced way back. http://charlotte.crains.com/article/news/novant-cancer-and-heart-clinic-set-launch
  3. Myers Park / Eastover Projects

    The tax collector says 1974! I know absolutely nothing about whether that was controversial at the time. But I have read that back in the day large chunks of close-in Charlotte were rezoned to multi-family to encourage redevelopment, because living in town was not so popular for families back then. It looks like other tall ones at 1530 Queens and 2222 Selwyn were built about that same time. I could not find a date for Sarajevo.
  4. Metropolitan, Midtown Redevelopment

    I was not able to make it to the meeting either, so I've been keeping an eye out for the community meeting report. It looks like it was just posted to the rezoning site: http://ww.charmeck.org/Planning/Rezoning/2017/175-190/2017-177 community report.pdf Very interesting read. The petitioner's presentation is appendix D, starting on p. 13. I enjoyed the effort they made to show how much better their building would look than a 15 story beige box at that site (which I gather they can build right now, without rezoning).
  5. Myers Park / Eastover Projects

    Driving by today, I saw that they were fencing off the surface parking lot on the east side of Queens between 3rd and 4th. It looks like they are finally moving ahead on the new heart and cancer center building, for which they have had signs on site for years. From what I can find in Acela, it looks like 250,000 sq ft with a 1,000 space parking deck.
  6. Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    I'm not really in the loop, but the last time I looked at the master plan, it seemed like A-North-North could end up as the terminal for the airlines operating there (Delta, United, etc) with ticketing, security, baggage, etc at that location, rather than the main terminal. I don't think I like the idea, but I might come around. I have not thought about it very long.
  7. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Since the geometric safety improvements will not be done until 2020, just between us, NC 275/279 through Dallas to I-85 is a very reasonable alternative to that intersection if your returning to Charlotte. I forget about this about half the time, and then invariably come close to giving someone a physics lesson when they pull that trick where they stay in the left hand "thru traffic" lane until the last possible second. Bonus: the Ingles off 321 has a Starbucks, and downtown Dallas is just lovely.
  8. Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    At first, I could not find anything on the NCDOT site either, but I did find this link on an eminent domain law firm referral website: https://www.ncdot.gov/download/projects/publichearings/I-5000-Alt3-Rendering-11x17.pdf Pretty novel solution if that's what they are doing. The timeline mentioned on the lawyer site, plus the fact that they are clearing land that would obviously be needed for the redesigned interchange, suggests that they might actually be doing this before the I-85 widening project. Fingers crossed.
  9. New Panthers Stadium in 2022?

    Good job @ricky_davis_fan_21!
  10. The Bad News Report

    Healthy Home Market is done. I actually shopped at the store with my wife on Tuesday and quickly got the sense that they would not be in business long. Lots of conspicuous gaps on the shelves. The staff was nice, though, Hope they all land on their feet. https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2018/01/10/healthy-home-market-unable-to-find-buyer-closing.html
  11. Any idea where exactly they think that new bridge is going to go?
  12. 2018 – Development Predictions

    I agree. Assuming that it does not turn out to be another medical office tower proposal, I expect limited resistance from the neighborhoods surrounding it.
  13. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    I found this at the Census / American Community Survey site: https://census.gov/data/tables/2015/demo/geographic-mobility/county-to-county-migration-2011-2015.html I downloaded the County-to-county migration from 2011-15 broken down by race. If I am looking at it correctly (and I very well might not be, as I am not super familiar with their reports), their estimates for migration into Mecklenburg County are: 57% White alone 28% Black or African-American alone 9% Asian alone 6% Other race alone or two or more races Ethnicity is addressed in a different report; Hispanic / Latino can report in any of the above race categories.
  14. Charlotte Center City Streetcar Network

    I get what you are saying, but I think I experience the opposite effect on Elizabeth. Because of that recessed bit on the left being narrower than my tire, the vehicle does not want to follow the track. The tire wants to steer me out of it, and because that's a really unstable feeling, I tend to avoid that track entirely. I found some old photos from when the tracks were installed on Elizabeth, and they definitely did it that way on purpose. The new sections at on Hawthorne and Traded did not include that recess. Some sort of drainage feature would make sense, and I could not be sure that they were not building in some sort of flexibility that would allow them to run different types of trains in the future.
  15. Charlotte Center City Streetcar Network

    Thanks for that. I forgot that it was built in phases. The Elizabeth section was built before the Trade street part.
