  1. Does anyone know what is going on with the construction in the middle of East Boulevard and Scott Avenue? It appears to be a duct bank. Anyone know anything?
  2. Bill Moore owns this property. He is a spiteful old man that doesn’t take care of his buildings and refuses to sell anything (reportedly because any rental income or proceeds from sale would have to be split between him and his ex-wife). Thus this one and the 20+ buildings he owns in NoDa will remain vacant and not be sold until he dies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I 100% agree with this comment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m pretty sure LH is just representing the Castanas family in their attempt to sell or lease the property for more than its worth. Castanas has been moving the pricing goal post for years now. When the market was $50 a foot he wanted $100. When market was $60 a foot he wanted $110. My guess is that nothing will happen there for decades or more.
  5. The City already has a mechanism for setting parameters around areas where the buildings are considered important or historic or unique. These areas are called Historic Districts and the redevelopment within those areas are governed by the Historic District Commission. Neighborhoods made up of property owners generally have to petition the City to become a historic district. The issue there is that most property owners don’t want to be part of a historic district. In many ways it devalues the properties in the neighborhood and makes it more difficult than it should be to work on or renovate
  6. Plans include 1,000 -1,200 spaces in a deck. And parking for the existing retail will be replaced in that deck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I hear they demanded access to over 150 spaces in a deck 7 days a week for free. I’m sure that wasn’t agreed to. But the people at that church deserve whatever demise comes to them. The sanctuary building is fantastic but the people running that place are crooks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Going underground makes the spaces cost somewhere between 1.5x and 2x the cost of above ground. But to my point, the Hearst tower is 970,000 sf and has 1,400 spaces. The parking ratio is dramatically less than what people think they have to build in South End. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Camp Northend on the other side of Uptown rezoned to UMUD(O) in the last year or two. So it can be done. The new UDO will set new height parameters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Rumor has it that the Church tried to hold up the sale and extort parking from the developer. Greedy pricks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I agree that this is an opportunity it’s to set a new standard, and this is the location to build tall. Unfortunately, developers and their capital partners have not gotten comfortable with either of the two things that make taller buildings in uptown work, namely (1) 100% pay to park and (2) a plus or minus one per thousand square feet parking ratio. At ratios that developers are currently comfortable with they would have to build 2,500 to 3,000 spaces in a deck to do a 50 story building with 20k sf plates. A deck like that doesn’t make any sense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. There is no plan at this time to tear either building down. This could happen if/when the Church goes away. CBJ is inaccurate. It was indeed contemplated as a two phase project.
  12. The two story building isn’t going anywhere. This post about Tupelo is inaccurate. That location was signed long before this property went into contract. Tupelo will operate both locations in Charlotte.
