  2. Someone deleted Pearl St Park, and all the development around it. Is that all actually done? Last week, I went by it was still under construction. Please be sure to post when you delete to help others know when a place is done. (Pearl st park is listed as not being finished until this Fall) Removed St Pauls Townhomes in Belmont, they were done when i went by the other day. Removed Oxford Gateway. Added detail to Spectrum's building at Carson and Mint and added 400 Carolyn Lane apartments
  3. Also removed some CPCC buildings that are complete and the central police building.
  4. We've always removed when the project is done. Hard to predict when satellite will be updated by Google. Removed American Legion Stadium https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/local/article252282618.html Removed Giddy Goat and Supperland in Midwood and Towers at Mattie Rose in Elizabeth

  6. Added the Kingston project. Removed the Ellis now complete https://theellisuptown.com/ The Square at Southend https://www.squaresouthend.com/ Also removed some remnants like Krispy Kreme shop and Pins Mechanical
  7. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/development/article251132024.html Ally is now complete. http://legacyunioncharlotte.com/office/650-south-tryon/ Deloitte at Legacy Union is now complete
  8. Removal of 277 is not under the control of CATS and is not really on topic for this. It has been reviewed by NCDOT and it is remaining, and getting fewer interchanges. I like the dreamscaping, but if we think Hawthorne Bridge closure embittered general population to Gold Line, removing 277 and trying to absorb commuter traffic on the Dilworth and uptown grids will be despised. 2nd Ward has seen huge growth from the Blue Line and the last business cycle. All that is needed to continue that growth is for the land to not be in possession of the county/city/schools. Sa
  9. To defend the alignment chosen through uptown is that it goes through huge areas that are ready for redevelopment, investment and growth. The Pipe & Foundry and 3rd Ward Warehouse districts are eyed for the type of growth that needs transit, but is currently 10-15 blocks of emptiness. Morehead Station is also in the 1/2 mile radius of the fast growing northern Wilmore / Gold District. Gateway Station does not exist yet, and it needs as much support and connectivity to both be useful as a station, but also to trigger the growth and redevelopment of the 7 blocks
  10. Agreed, at-grade rail thru here would be horrible considering unlike where the blue line is at grade, this is the major connection area to the interstate and really would be bad to have all those added crossings. They do seem to have the connector in a trench connecting somehow that isn't really clearly drawn. but then taking a closer look, they do away with the Church street exit, so I suppose that part of the Uptown Loop study is done. I'm glad they keep the Graham exit in the plan, as it serves a large population north of uptown like Music Factory and Camp NorthEnd area.
  11. The walk between the station platforms is totally in the norm for transit transfers, however, they really need to add a covered pathway to do this to improve the idea that it is the same station . They seem to be planning a huge canopy over the station itself, so covering the transfer should be a modest add, but I think will really help. I'm extremely happy to see First Ward / Davidson Street getting a station. It is absurd to have the train passing by the fairly dense neighborhood just to skip it. Graham street renderings are also really awesome, keeping and improving th
  12. There is definitely some growth potential at Hawthorne/Sunnyside, but that would still be true if they went past that for one additional stop. Especially given the massive expense and effort that the project absorbed in replacing Hawthorne Bridge. (I will forever believe a train - only bridge could have been built all the way to Pecan for the same money and had a station that actually could provide connections for the Silver line without embittering the neighborhood to the streetcar. ) But since they took on that cost, they should have gone farther up Hawthorne. The growth and densit
  13. Charlotte Center City Partners has never believed Fourth Ward and Gateway are part of uptown. Meanwhile, the current plan takes the line near the new stadium growth area, the new train station, the Music Factory/4th Ward area, and alongside 1st Ward which is desperate for redevelopment after decades of blank blocks of surface parking. "Uptown" means to put it where they are just about to finish a streetcar line.
  14. Great building and great photos. Such a solid result on a pretty low-expectations plot of land. The low expectations set by the Renaissance Place a long time ago. Now, just to hope that FNB only hires skinny people since they have to walk the 1' sidewalk here!
  15. "to honor the architecture on the block, we have decided to cover all ornate architectural features on the building with a bank billboard." maybe
