    First Ward Urban Village / North Tryon Vision Plan

    The Levine website has turned into a promotional page solely for the park.

    First Ward Urban Village / North Tryon Vision Plan

    LOL the only part of any of the project that broke ground is the stakes for the sign.

    NoDa (N Davidson St Arts District) Projects

    The common denominator on Urbana deals is that they are CHEAP. Cheap owner hires a cheap architect that doesn't spend the time it takes to make an attractive building.

    Charlotte Knights AAA Ballpark in Third Ward

    I was told that when the land deal was made for the stadium they didn't want to give away the land for the hotel until the Knight's Stadium could demonstrate that it was profitable after 1 year of use. I'd say they've met that metric.

    The Good News Report

    They just got done with a small round of layoffs.

    Plaza-Midwood Projects (Central, Commonwealth, The Plaza)

    Where on Morningside?

    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    A worker died up at A&P's Crescent University project back in October. Maybe that's what you were thinking of?

    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    I can appreciate their optimism, but if you look at the two sites as they stand today, there's no way they could finish even 6 months apart, assuming Camden's delivery schedule is at the extreme ends of each quarter.

    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    Camden Gallery is at a standstill because A&P is having some serious issues. I guarantee that Camden Southline will open 6-8 months before Camden Gallery, and Southline got a 1-2 month head start.

    Another bar/restaurant bites the dust

    Using the greenway through Wesley Heights is a nice walk. Also, there were rumblings of converting the old rail bridge at the end of the greenway into a pedestrian bridge. That would turn a walk from Pinky's to the ball park into a pleasant 10-15 minute walk.

    The Bad News Report

    I wonder who the [prominent Charlotte Developer] who owns the [prominent Charlotte commercial real estate company] is? Doesn't Johnny Harris own a lot of land along the Gold Line Ext? But the affidavit said it was an international guy?

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    It'd be easiest to buy a ticket with a preloaded amount based on destination. Ticket machine would know that it costs $x.xx to get from 485 to Stonewall, and your ticket is loaded with that amount. You then have to scan to exit the station. Problem is Charlotte isn't set up for that. We have platforms with uncontrolled access so any ticket based policing would be costly to implement.

    Road Diets

    Case in point the construction has been going on for a couple of weeks and there is hardly any congestion except when Gateway Apartments has a delivery vehicle.

    Road Diets

    It would be a nightmare between Woodlawn and Tyvola every day. Maybe more people would ride the light rail.

    Google Fiber coming to Charlotte?

    I applaud what they are doing but in that picture they look like they work out of a garage.
