  1. Florence Developments

    Sounds like a not-so-attractive place to be, but I hope that the city manages to follow the footsteps of other places in revitalizing its center and provide a safe place for all visitors. Nice photos, though!!!
  2. Elizabeth Projects (7th St, Elizabeth Ave, etc)

    This is truly a kick-ass project; the kind of urban project we all wish to see in our cities. I can't wait for construction [photo] updates once East Park District begins to get significant mass. Thanks for posting these images; the map helps us understand better the significance of this project and how well it will help connecting Uptown with its nearby neighborhoods.
  3. Urban development in Cary?

    It's nice for Cary to get a 10-story building. Of course, I wish that Regency Park had an urban feel, at least for parts of it, but this new proposal may set the tone for similar projects nearby. Who knows, Cary may eventually shift to something more urban
  4. Triangle in the national media

    Biotechnology will get even stronger in the Triangle, judging from bits and pieces I read every now and then. Personally, I prefer a more diversified economy, but I support whatever helps the area gain [positive] visibility.
  5. NewBridge Bank Park

    I love these drawings The area will look very impressive once the entire project gets completed. The Ballpark District stands to gain a lot from the momentum that the ballpark itself has created. I see no reason why this area won't become a great destination for many people and I am anxious to see the progress.
  6. COMPLETED: Hartford 21

    Definitely an impressive project!!! Absolutely worth pursuing.
  7. Triangle in the national media

    It is always nice to be in the Top-5 of such list. I am not really surprised, considering the continuous efforts by the local biotech companies to maintain and strengthen Triangle's biotechnology infrastructure. Honestly, I did not know anything about San Diego's biotechnology sector, so it came as a surprise... although a pleasant one.
  8. Downtown Greensboro Developments

    Excellent update!!! Things are moving to the right direction for DT Greensboro and the Triad.
  9. The Arlington

    I agree with you M. Brown... I had the same feeling. The 40-story rendering is what I was looking for (thanks for posting it, monsoon). When I first saw it my jaw dropped and I was really happy. Too bad they had to scale it down, but even as a 22-story tower, The Arlington is a great addition to Charlotte's skyline. I hope to see the day when NC cities will see great demand for high-rise living and more "Arlingtons" will be built.
  10. Carowinds

    This is a really nice tour of Carowinds. I've never been there, so I can't comment on the rides, but I surely hope it finds its past glory.
  11. The Arlington

    Under certain lighting, The Arlington doesn't look bad. I am not fond of the pink color, but it certainly looks nice in the photos. By the way, excellent shots... all three of them.
  12. SouthPark Mall

    I have to agree with 49er... the more upscale shopping they put outside downtown the harder it gets for Uptown Charlotte to complete its image and speed up the momentum. Of course, South Park's proximity to Uptown may also work for the latter's growth, too. As people get closer to the core, they will eventually embrace Uptown even more. While I would prefer those stores to have a more central address, it is still great news for Charlotte's shopping scene.
