  1. my rendering is published in this week's Rhino Times!   http://www.rhinotimes.com/Content/E-Edition/E-Edition/Flipbook/February-4-2016/1/37/126#1
  2. thanks! While some may be skeptical about the tower, I believe it will eventually happen. People quickly forget that 27 years ago, three office towers were under construction at the same time in downtown Greensboro all of which totaled more square footage combined than what Mr Carroll is proposing.. With attractions like the performing arts center, residential development and Union Square coming online, its only a matter of when not if. Its been 27 years and we are due for another one soon. I still cant believe its been that long. I'm getting old lol
  3. Thanks here are a few more renderings I created
  4. well I know they had to cut back to stay under budget. The facility will cost $78 million. My guess is that a lot of money went into technolology in the building. Its not a bold design like many expected but Im still impressed
  5. The final design for the performing arts center is revealed. Construction starts this summer  http://www.bizjournals.com/triad/news/2016/01/27/first-look-the-steven-tanger-center-for-the.html  
  6. developer Roy Carroll liked my rendering. Its going to be published in the weekly Rhino Times!!
  7. Final renderings of the $78 million 3,000 seat Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts will finally be revealed Wednesday. Nearly  $40 million comes from private donors. The rest will be paid for through hotel motel tax and user fees. It's an amazing feat to pay for a center at that price without public tax dollars. The price is almost doubled the price of DPAC in Durham.  The center is named after Steven Tanger, president and CEO of Greensboro based Tanger Outlets. Construction will begin this Summer. It will be the largest performing arts venue between Atlanta and Washington DC  http://www.greensboro.com/news/local_news/tanger-center-design-to-be-unveiled/article_364fbef1-80bd-5a6b-bd92-597c86f7096c.html?TNNoMobile
  8. Pro Basketball Returns to Greensboro

    I'm sure they are redesigning the pavilion for a larger configuration in the future. I think as far as attendance goes, the team should do quite well. Greensboro is one of the larger markets in the  d league and this is basketball country.
  9. updated rendering I created showing surrounding towers. What else is there to do while being snowed in? LOL  
  10. Well here is a rendering I created showing what Greensboro's project 561 could look like. I placed the tower next to Roy Carroll's Center Pointe Tower, the likely location for project 561. Took me hours to recreate Center Pointe and design the tower

  13. Downtown Greensboro Developments

    Here is a photo update of Bellemeade Village which will consist of 300 luxury apartments and street level retail in several mid-rise buildings and a Hyatt Place Hotel. The Hyatt Place Hotel is the first to rise from the ground Here is a photo update for the mixed-used Union Square University development which will consist of educational buildings, retail, office, residential and eventually a hotel. Construction on the first educational building is well under way. Cone Health, UNCG, NC A&T and GTCC will collaborate together in this building and there will be nursing training classes and a simulator. The first building in LeBauer City Park is going up. It will be located across the street from Center-City Park and the future Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts  
  14. The "mystery Lee Street tower" I came across a link to an architectural firm website which shows a preliminary design for an 8-story condo tower. I'm assuming its on Gate City Blvd because its title "Lee Street Tower". The website says the proposed building will be located just outside of downtown Greensboro but based on the comments section this proposal is at least three years old. I have never heard of it until now. Is this suppose to be a part of the Union Square project which was just recently annexed into the central business district?

  15. UNC Greensboro will be expanding its footprint along Gate City Blvd just west of downtown with a town square style dorm complex which will include a grocery store, retail and restaurants. http://www.greensboro.com/news/schools/uncg-s-newest-dorms-to-have-grocery-store-restaurants/article_750cd3b4-5473-594e-bcb5-a053d6630fbe.html
