The First Ward master plan calls for max heights of 8 stories at that parcel. The vision is that the heights taper down from Tryon as you get closer to 277. Thats why no one balked at Courtside (except for the old ladies at Autumn Place) since it is much closer to the skyscrapers on Tryon. Whereas this parcel is really close to 277.
IMO anything above 5 stories would really stick out. Every parcel surrounding this land doesnt go above 4 stories (including the future Renwick). The taller buildings don't start till Davidson and Caldwell.
I think something on the scale of SouthEnd Village w
