    University City Projects/News

    Good summary of all the projects going on in the university area in the observer. Really excited for UC to pick up some momentum and density.
  3. Maybe that’s where I got that idea. It would make sense! Pretty much the same corridors being considered for toll lanes would also be effective rapid transit corridors if we had the funds and right of way.
  4. I wonder if it could be feasible to just run it down the median of 485 with pedestrian bridges at stations. Stations near Carolina Place/CMC Pineville, Ballantyne/Community House, Piper Glen, all the Providence Rd development, maybe even Ayrsley and the Outlets to the west of 77. Could possibly provide more benefit than converting that space to toll lanes. And could potentially connect the blue line to the silver line to provide an additional way to transfer! I’m dreaming lol

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    The new property management for Vanguard Center (off Tyvola next to 77) is looking into adding shuttle service to connect to the nearby light rail stations. Not the biggest news but this would be a great option for commuters who may have been stymied by the walkability on Tyvola/Minuet Ln.

    Gotcha thanks!! I’m at my observer article limit so couldn’t see it all

    Economic Development - Expansions and Relocations

    The business journal says median salary is $340k but the observer says $85k. Both for 750 jobs. Big difference there lol

    That’s true, it will be cool to have a place solely focused on jazz though!

    300 S Brevard is finally getting some (retail) tenants. Looks like some interesting ones too, I don’t think uptown has been able to say it has a jazz room for a while!

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    Making uptown more friendly to bikes, peds, and transit and less friendly to cars WOULD benefit people with lower incomes and people with disabilities. Do you think it is people with the highest incomes who take the bus? Can all people with disabilities even get a drivers license? No - people with lower incomes disproportionately use transit to begin with, and people with disabilities benefit from improved pedestrian accessibility - safer crosswalks and ramps and better visibility.

    We definitely do not need to increase vehicular mobility in uptown. That's like the opposite of what we should do.

    Not sure how that’s the case? LIC arguably has better transit connections than anywhere in Charlotte. It has the LIRR as well as the 7, E, M, R, N, Q, and G lines. Not to mention bus and ferry service.

    The business journal said the campaign paid $34k

    210 Trade | EpiCentre

    I’d love to see the epicenter get more of a mix like the Denver Pavilions for example. Uniqlo, H&M, a few restaurants with outdoor seating on the upper floors. Could keep some of the nightlife scene but would help the area be a little more well-rounded with foot traffic throughout the day.
