  1. Lidl in University City will be opening next Wednesday, June 16th: https://www.google.com/amp/s/patch.com/north-carolina/charlotte/amp/29593065/lidl-to-open-new-charlotte-store-in-university-city-details
  2. Topgolf in University, will open this Friday: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/whats-in-store/article250461151.html?fbclid=IwAR25SuGOyzTd-Yfucbkb2meLu1kN19HYl2r2lPAG-qC4HSMroeF8FOSgYdI
  3. There’s now a permit in Accela for a new Bojangles at 3809 Independence Blvd, which is also on the same block as the new Starbucks. Another two permits are up for new retail near Westchester Blvd, where the old fast food restaurants are. https://aca-prod.accela.com/CHARLOTTE/Cap/CapDetail.aspx?Module=LandDevelopment&TabName=LandDevelopment&capID1=20LDR&capID2=00000&capID3=00227&agencyCode=CHARLOTTE https://aca-prod.accela.com/CHARLOTTE/Cap/CapDetail.aspx?Module=LandDevelopment&TabName=LandDevelopment&capID1=19LDR&capID2=00000&capID3=00167&
  4. Construction on the Irvin Building is about to start: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/development/article251397733.html
  5. Looks like there’s an official push for commuter/regional rail in the Triangle. This rail line would run on the NC Railroad from Durham to Clayton. https://www.cbs17.com/news/local-news/proposed-commuter-rail-would-connect-triangle-municipalities-from-durham-to-clayton/ I honestly hope a Mecklenburg/Cabarrus/Rowan line on the NC Railroad happens some day. By far the most realistic rail corridor in the metro where commuter/regional rail is possible.
  6. New Amtrak national map. I like it. Though, I wouldn’t mind service between Columbia and Charlotte.
  7. When do we get the official results of the 2020 census? Will we still get estimates for 2020 as well? I’m curious to see if Charlotte cracks 900k people for the new decade.
  8. If you give these roads a road diet, you could easily have a Gold Line spur that has its own ROW. Might be an important proposal for this area, especially with all the development that’s happening in Midtown, Dilworth, and the Park Road area.
  9. Good news for the Varnadore building. Also, there was a permit in Accela to grade the lot that is next to the Varnadore building, in between Wilshire and Woodland, for “future development”. Hopefully it’s a mixed-use development, in anticipation of the Silver Line. Also, since it looks like the Silver Line will be routed on the other side of Independence, I hope a pedestrian bridge is not only built here, but at various points along the corridor.
  10. I know First Ward is a bit barren right now because of the Levine blocks, but what was it like before urban renewal? I couldn’t really find much history on this area, only info on Second Ward/Brooklyn came up.
  11. Super Abari is moving into 1015 Seigle Avenue by the end of the summer: https://charlotte.axios.com/249944/super-abari-game-bar-in-the-works-in-belmont-neighborhood/?fbclid=IwAR0EWhuQLRo9b1iS6SJKuFeTPZar0tTyDV81BXApY0atIGvnaoJQQC40o9Y
  12. Not to take anything away from Concord, but Asheville is geographically smaller than Concord. Concord has a larger population, but Asheville is more densely populated.
  13. This seems like a massive blow to many of the area malls. In regards to the South Park location, isn’t Belk in a four story building? I wonder how anyone would be able to fill such a large location.
  14. I always felt like Asheville would benefit from a trolley. There’s an old abandoned train line that follows the French Broad that could be either converted to a streetcar or rail trail. Personally, almost any city could benefit from a short line that runs through their CBD, especially if it’s free to ride. Even better if an Amtrak station or local/intercity bus hub is close to the line.
