  1. Really cool Tool that Tom Tom Site is. I guess this means we actually need to appreciate NCDOT for their work expanding existing road network capacity and building new highways throughout the State. I'd still like to see even more focus on NC Urban Areas and better funding to support Rail Transit (commuter & local) from them.
  2. I believe that you are correct. Was supposed to be Office and Hotel there - both might be quite awhile in development or changed at some point.
  3. This area does seem to have some momentum. Anyone know what that massive Apartment Complex is named or who the Developer is and how many units? Its adjacent to I-77\Woodlawn and behind that Mexican restaurant
  4. Will this Philemon extension connect all the way through to the other side or will there need to be another to make it fully through? Its about dang time - seemed like there was a slight fall\drop in active construction sites around NoDa since the Cresent 36st Apartments opened a couple years ago
  5. Dang that's a lot. Do you (or anyone) know what a healthy balance of Multi-Family Units vs. Single Family Units for a City is? Seems like there will soon be much more apartments in Charlotte City Limits than Single Family Home\Townhomes at this pace. 50\50 or 60\40?
  6. Hey Crowd FYI - Last night I looked through the City Zoning Agenda for fun (really looking for any details on the NWR Midtown Tower), checking on what projects were seeking approval and I was blown away by the sheer number of Apartments/Multifamily Projects. I didn’t keep any specific count but it was like nearly 2000 Apartments up for approval. Most of those were not along the LightRail Corridor like we all are so often happy to discuss. I was very surprised indeed.
  7. I would agree that if they get approval this would probably break ground by the end of this year. That would give them 18 to 24 months for their Ballantyne & 4th Ward developments to lease up before this would begin lease up. Timing seems appropriate for NWR.
  8. Yes - It's Typical for Major Towers (500'+) to have 24 hr activity. Usually big concrete pours at night and Formwork Stripping & Assembly during the Day Shift. Probably true for some smaller Towers too, just depends on the Contractor if their able to coordinate such undertakings.
  9. From the rumblings they have been putting out I would suspect that Both the Stiles (110 East) and Centre South Projects (S. Blvd) will both be turning dirt by the end of this year. South End is a very attractive market and a Safer Bet than any Spec Office starts Uptown at the moment.
  10. Charlotte is really fortunate to have a 500'+ Tower under Construction as not many other US Cities do currently. Seems like there a lot of talk about Companies reducing the need for Office Space and that will be reflected in Developers building less SF.
  11. How about that - CBJ is reporting on an Apartment Complex (221 Units) set to break ground around the July Timeframe adjacent/nearby the Tom Hunter Station. I think this would be the first major Apartment Complex under construction near this Station unless anyone else know different?
  12. I believe that the Capital Towers Office Buildings are also Lighted out there in SouthPark. I do believe that SouthPark and Ballantyne will both be Submarkets in Charlotte lit up with Accent Lighting on their tall structures soon, similar to Uptown and SouthEnd.
  13. I agree with your assessment. The City needs to get Sidewalks extended throughout Southend as soon as possible.
  14. Oh - I'm going to call it, I'm sure CLT population as of 7\1\2020 will be more than 900K. Probably like 905K to 910K....
  15. Openly wondering where in the above three (3) photos of Gateway Station under construction that there would even be space for the Silver Line Rails? I’m sure Amtrak & Lightrail use different Gauge Rails so doesn’t look like any future space reserved for Silver if it ever gets funded?
  16. The Atrium-Wake Forest Medical School is one - What are the other two you're referring too?
  17. Is anyone here on UP planning to attend\defend the 2040 Plan at tonight's meeting? Seems like a lot of people might be lined up in opposition to the SFH Zoning Amendment allowing for density on existing Lots
  18. Is the NCDMV HQ in Rocky Mount only temporary until Hazard Mitigation can be completed on their existing building in Raleigh?
  19. Is there a place we can go to find out roughly how many apartment units have delivered in Charlotte 2020 and how many are under construction now? I remember during the boom days (before COVID-19) there was reporting on over 12,000 units actively under construction.
  20. Does anyone know yet how much $$ CATS is getting from the $30 Billion Stimulus Funding and what they would use it for?
  21. All True but there is still so much uncertainty in the economy right now. Office is slow and people are still working from home largely but if I had to guess I would say that another Office Building here (LU4) is still more likely than either Apartments or Hotel. Hotel industry has been savaged and may need several years of recovering occupancy and occupancy rates before anything major is started. Apartments are more likely than Hotel but less likely than Office because of the glut coming online from LMC (1st Ward) & NWR (Graham St), add to that the fact that NWR will break ground this
  22. I like the way this site is turning out but even more love how bullish NWR has been on Charlotte. This site and the Ballantyne high rise site coming online within the next 3 to 6 months which is about the time they may begin another high rise apartment in midtown.
  23. I think City Council is have the City Attorney research this because there is some open question about it
  24. I would agree with the idea that the SFH Zoning exclusion should be for the transit corridors if the UDO 2040 Plan fails. I think someone else on here mentioned that go between idea
