  1. ^ not sure. I think it might be site prep/mitigation for future sale. Nichols controls/represents.
  2. I noticed just yesterday, that the The Morningside Block 7 Parking Deck is underway.... and ENORMOUS.

    I think the labor market is still in bad shape. We are seeing lots of projects stalling due to inability to find workers. When a job loses momentum it can be REALLY disruptive.
  4. That is what I have been told. Initially it was a flasher, but was upgraded to a full light after the shopping center agreed to align their drive.

    The final design of this is so much less inspiring than the original... makes me wonder what a "if Money were no object" Charlotte would look like.... A hypothetical city where all the original designs were actually built.

    Are you sure that's a parking deck? I thought it was programmed space.
  7. Charlotte Center City Streetcar Network

    I would think that maybe the road slopes for drainage, but the rails have to be level. It was probably a design flaw that they corrected for the following phase.
  8. That’s a good point. I think that there is the potential for that area to develop its own identity. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Does anyone other than a sunny side resident even know that there is a sunny side neighborhood? When all the businesses market themselves as Plaza midwood... eventually it will sink in. How long will it take? Well... most of those businesses along Central have been claiming Plaza midwood for the last 15 years. Hell even Alma Adams our US Representative describes her “Elizabeth Square” apartment as being in Plaza Midwood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Here is an interesting and related article I came across today after reading your post and then letting my mind wander. It is long on rant and short on solution, but the rant is very articulate.

    ^^I disagree that the FatCity Building is contextual or properly scaled. To be contextual, it really should have made more of an attempt to look like a 2-3 story building. To be properly scaled, it should have made an attempt to scale back at the 5 story mark.... North Davidson is WAY too small a street for 6 stories.

    Don't know if this has been reported yet, but they are actually spending some of the approved funding for the ped crossing at Publix... on design. Planned to be convertible to station in future.

    ^Food Hall/Farmer's Market... Atherton x10.
  14. Charlotte Bike Sharing

    I was wondering how long it would be before people started complaining about ugly bike littering the landscape, parked in overly conspicuous places... and then I read this article in the Guardian about other cities and their emerging issues with bike share. Hopefully it will be a while before we have to deal with scuzzy bikes, but I do wonder if it might be prudent for there to be a designated or "suggested" area to return these things... you know, to tidy up the place.
