    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    That tall hotel is going to block some (most?) of the view the Rail Yard has, right?
  2. One thing I heard (and this may not be 100% correct) is that any stops connected to the airport and the rail between those stops can be funded in part by using the airport funds. Just another pot of money to help pay for the project and would explain why the stops are where they are and why there are two instead of one.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Yeah the construction on 77 has seemed chaotic from the beginning. Pretty sure a few weeks ago I saw them destroying a concrete barrier that they had built only a few months prior. Plans changed? Or they just put in the wrong place to begin with?
  4. Walked by on Sunday, no crane or even a pad for a crane visible yet.

    Charlotte Greenway Trails

    Charlotte city council will vote on June 11th to contribute funds to the rail trail bridge over 277. Funding is coming from the city, county, NCDOT as well the private sector. First picture shows the future built out Greenway system around uptown.

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    Security checked my tickets yesterday afternoon. First time in a long time that it has happened. Then again, I don't ride that often.

    SouthEnd "Gold District"

    General question: Is there enough demand for all of these new retail places that are coming online in the Gold District and South End? It just seems like a lot of spaces are available for lease all at once (Eden's leasing Atherton 2.0, Asana with the Design Center & others, the Railyard, this thing making Bland St less Bland, and DFA). For example, I drive past the prime (maybe?) corner spot in the new apartment complex at South and Remount that has sat empty since the apartment complex opened.

    The RailYard SouthEnd

    So there is a business grant in Charlotte to help offset the costs to repair facades of old buildings and they seem to be done (for the moment at least) granting any for the South End area. Sad. Sorry for being slightly off topic.

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Not sure if this is the reason for the delay of the road way but the City Council just voted on a change order to the elevated roadway contract that will allow 5 crane foundations to be included in the work currently being done.
  14. They charge $15 for a car to park there if you pay in advance. Pay at the gate and it's $20.
