    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    The 2nd Parking Deck is huge and designed to have 2700 last I heard. My question is - This deck going to be used for other phases of LU or are most of these designated for LU1? I'm not even sure how much parking a 850k building is required (by City) to have but seems like this could support a Massive Residential High Rise as well as LU1
  2. LMC seems to have a pretty solid business model on this project. Hopefully this will be a catalyst for Levine-Land. I doubt that this area will have the density seen around Romare Bearden

    FNB Tower 401 S Graham St

    You mean the total amount under construction and/or planned as a percentage of existing? Anyone know what that math (%) currently is?

    Belk Place: Carolina Theater and Hotel Intercontinental

    I'm just glad this project is finally underway substantially and that the final height appears to have been increased 25+ feet.

    Belk Place: Carolina Theater and Hotel Intercontinental

    Are you guys getting these renderings from Accela? I've had nothing but trouble trying to use the citizen access tool for Accela

    Grand Bohemian Hotel – 15 Floors – 254 Rooms – Boutique Hotel

    Which building is the 'Interstate Tower'?

    NoDa (N Davidson St Arts District) Projects

    So Stonehenge Apartments appear to be the first tangible project from Flywheel. Glad they're moving ...!

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    I believe that NCDOT is requiring Lighting along I-85 at each Major Interchange/Exit. I don't believe they'll be lighting on the I-85 Mainline between exits.

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    What's everyone's take on the accuracy of Wikipedia? They're now reporting on LU2 - 17 Story Office at S. Tyron/Hill Street as being proposed at 292' Tall. As far as anything related to 1000 Room Convention hotel - I'm sure it'll go on the site the City of Charlotte owns as part of some Public/Private Partnership. I just hope that Charlotte in short order (next 2 years) gets major announcements on new towers and developments due to the City coming into its own with Major Events (Sporting & Political) - Population Growth (approaching 1 Million) and public investments in Transit. Seems like Charlotte is beginning to grow up in its Public Profile as a Major City

    Ballantyne

    Speaking of all the growth - Have you checked out Waverly and Rea Farms? I think those areas now qualify as 'infill' and have a lot of planning behind it. Hopefully more growth will take place moving back towards the City Center as Charlotte is quite sprawling.

    SouthPark neighborhood Projects

    Just looked it up on Emporis. Definitely seems like it'll be larger in SF and possibly in height. Lot size and shape at 5954 Carnegie Dr appear to be larger than the first two Capitol Towers.

    CATS Long Term Transit Plan - Silver, Red, Airport Lines

    I been doing some studying of the Durham-Orange Lightrail Line and I totally agree with all of the above comments. I didn't realize at first (couple years ago when proposed) just how spread out and Non-urban that environment is along the planned alignment because I mostly lived in Wake County. I just hope that if it gets off the ground with Construction that CATS 'Big Bang' in Charlotte gets funding too. I think the Durham-Orange LRT line will struggle for many decades with ridership. The make up of the Triangle Metro Area's population is just so diffuse between Durham / Orange & Wake County. Commuter Rail between the Counties could make more sense.

    Traffic Congestion and Highway Construction

    Question: Are you Highway/Transit minded folks ready to vote for higher taxes and/or expanded Bonds for the Transit Lightrail Referendum that's sure to be coming our way in the next couple of years? Seems like the only way to get the CATS 'Big Bang' off the ground. Anyone think the Regional Approach (surrounding Counties) will chip in?

    Republican National Convention in Charlotte

    Wholly Crap - Those are definitely huge issues but i think JBS is right that nothing will take his supporters away from him.

    Republican National Convention in Charlotte

    If you don't mind my ignorance... what happened in yesterday's news that would affect the 2020 RNC or potentially make it one of the most watched Conventions of all time? Are you referencing the Muller Investigation some how?
