  1. Prepare to be underwhelmed. What I've seen is a 12 story tower over a 5 floor garage.
  2. According to the NCDOT traffic volume map it only carries around 4800 cars per day. Seems expendable to me!
  3. I wonder if they would attempt to realign the "College Street Connector" that runs through the land holding.
  4. Officespace movie anyone? This was the first time I every heard of Los Colinas.
  5. It's 13 floors (9 above 4 parking levels) but multifamily now instead of office. Still has grocery on first floor. I wonder how much the architecture will change now?
  6. Yeah, I remember this being done to the old Fat City in NoDa and to the storefronts on Park Ave in South End. It's much better than nothing.
  7. People complain that most of the history in Charlotte was razed by previous generations yet we make the same justification now when new development is proposed to replace old building stock.
  8. Quote from the article below makes it sound as if the hotel is no longer indefinitely delayed. "The hotel construction will start once the theater podium, which serves as the development’s foundation, is completed, according to Lauren Smith from the foundation." https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/development/article252341448.html
  9. I place a lot of the blame with the general assembly. 25% of the blue line was paid for with state funds. Now we're asking whether they will even let us hold a sales tax referendum much less help with funding.
  10. So they gave up on screening the one corner of the deck facing S. Blvd? I feel like the towers are great but at the same time they will continue to encourage the removal of the smaller scale brick structures that give South End some of its charm.
  11. https://www.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/news/2021/04/27/wells-fargo-ceo-was-asked-at-the-annual-meeting-wh.html Paywalled article but from what I can see in the preview the CEO of Wells really dodged questions about a move out of CA.
  12. This is just a crazy bad plan. That land is so valuable. They could build so many more affordable units in a good location somewhere else.
  13. I will admit, I don't know much about private equity firms but when they are involved, it seems many retailers get run into the ground. You have to wonder if Belk would have been better off on its own.
  14. These photos are amazing! It's not pretty but is definitely interesting to look at. I like the top 6 or 7 floors and all of the retail. The rest of the building looks like cheap painted EIFS.
  15. The Charlotte Moves Task Force is looking at something like what passed in Austin as a way forward. The referendum might include infrastructure other than transit.
