    Atherton Mill Redevelopment

    The retail is covering the garage a lot better than I thought it would, which is great to see. I still wish they had done red brick all the way to the top on this thing. The top floor being aluminum just sort of looks strange and out of place to me.
  2. Yes, it is on the corner of Hill and Tryon. It wasn't finished when I walked by on Friday.

    SouthEnd "Gold District"

    Snapped this on Friday. It looks like there is going to be a rooftop component to the new bar next to Craft. If I recall, this is going to be a whiskey room owned by the same people that own Craft.

    SouthPark neighborhood Projects

    ^^ Great shots KJ. There certainly is a lot of development going on in Southpark right now. I am increasingly worried about how bad traffic in Southpark will be in the next 2-3 years when all of this development fills out. No mass transit, no close highway access, and a really unfriendly environment for pedestrians and bikers sounds like a disaster of cars to me. Has the city ever floated ideas of light rail or streetcar out to this area? I always have thought that a light rail spur that is able to hit Montford and Southpark would be awesome for both areas.

    The RailYard SouthEnd

    Footings for the apartments were getting poured early this morning.

    Southend Living

    Park-It is located next door to Wooden Robot. They issue all the parking tickets, at least in Southend. You parked illegally across the street from the company that issues all of the parking tickets lol.
  8. Yup, pretty cool video for anyone curious on how these cranes raise and lower themselves:

    Drinking Beer in Charlotte

    Yup, Pop the Top has an incredible selection, especially in their grocery, but they are about $1/pint more expensive than most places in the city. I still love Craft, and I think that their ambience is second-to-none in Charlotte, but will concede that the past few times I've been there haven't been as many great beers as usual. Has anyone in here been to Good Bottle since they re-vamped? I used to go there all the time way back when.

    Dimensional Place (Common Market South End site)

    RDF, so do you know if they are planning on painting the yellow stone/brick, or are they keeping it as is? I never saw any kind of renderings for this project, but I always assumed they would strip or paint over the yellow. It seems like they would have painted it before putting in windows though. I hope they keep the funky look. It is beautifully hideous.

    Drinking Beer in Charlotte

    Thats a big get for Wooden Robot. I kind of hoped that some other type of retail would fill that spot to add some variety to Summit St, but anything beats Park-It.
  12. It is surreal to me that in ~5 years time, the intersection of Church and Stonewall could have 3 highrise buildings built or under construction that currently don't exist. (Two Legacy Union buildings, plus whatever gets built after the old Duke Energy building gets demo'd). As busy as Stonewall has been over the past 5 years, there is still a lot of redevelopment coming down the pipe.

    Charlotte area population statistics

    Thats an awesome map. Looking at the US in the same view as China and India is absolutely staggering.

    Atherton Mill Redevelopment

    I've used the ones in front of Publix as well as the spots in front of the new Solis apartments. I didn't feel very safe parking in either. Cars truly fly down South Boulevard and it only takes one person texting to smash into you going 45 mph. I think that all the development along South Blvd has been awesome, and it already feels like the area is getting life pumped into it, but I wonder what the future of the actual road will look like. The stretch of South between 277 and Scaleybark badly needs designated turn lanes and some way to slow cars down and improve the road for bikers and pedestrians.
  15. From today. You can see bracing for the pyramid being assembled near the base of the tower. It looks like we should be topping out any day now. . .
