    I'm not sure orulz likes it, but here is the new design for the BB&T Building. Certainly a change.

    Capital Center, Asheville

    Might not be happening if you believe the guy speaking at a recent city council meeting - http://ashevilleblade.com/?p=953 It doesn't matter where the human services building is built. There will be panhandlers/drifters/unarmed muggers wherever you go. I've had someone ask for money at the Asheville Krispy Kreme.

    Capital Center, Asheville

    The "hotelization" of downtown continues. It doesn't upset me, but I just wonder how much the market can absorb. I guess we'll see.

    "The Block" revitalization back on the table

    Looks like I'll get my wish on the Foundry building (maybe): Asheville Foundry Inn I do get a weird "I wonder if they can pull all of this off" vibe about this project.

    BB&T building conversion to hotel

    The demo on the parking deck has begun. The Citizen-Times has a cool before and after viewer for the AC site as well as a few other hotel sites.

    Biltmore Village developments

    Not a lot to report, but I did see some sort of soil testing at the Thompson and Stoner site last week.

    The Good News Report

    Unless the city was involved with some legal matter involving Dr. Morrison, they would not be able to go into closed session to talk about him since he is not an employee of the city (or a proposed employee).
  11. Is there someone within city/county government that has sway similar to Mitch Silver in Raleigh? I always had the impression that Silver was instrumental in the revision of Raleigh's station into something achievable. I could be wrong, however.

    I-26 Connector

    The only logical explanation I can think of for eight lanes is that they want to build it at that capacity and not have to worry about it for another 50 years. Besides that it's hard to imagine the need.

    Aloft Hotel?

    A little more news about the proposed housing on Lexington: Developer asks Council for help building new downtown housing
  14. Actually it's for transit connection planning: "NCDOT will also receive $200,000 for the Piedmont Study, a multimodal corridor study to improve transit connections and multimodal linkages along the Carolinian and Piedmont rail lines." It's classified as a Passenger Rail project by US DOT.

    Metropolitan, Midtown Redevelopment

    At Home actually is Garden Ridge. More of a large Kirkland's than a hobby store.
