  1. Albuquerque Development

    It looks like the ABQ portion of this forum has been dead for a long time so I thought that I might as well get something started. Does anyone have any news on developments going on in ABQ?
  2. There is a new ARB Report out on the Colonial Pedestrian Overpass Bridge with renderings and final approval of the lighting plan. http://www.cityoforlando.net/city-planning/wp-content/uploads/sites/27/2017/03/ARB2016-00070report.pdf Report says project is scheduled to commence construction First Quarter of 2017. I can confirm that work has started with site clearing and pile driving. Crews flagged the area and removed multiple trees in the right of way for the project next to SteelHouse this month. I expect sitework to begin and we may see vertical construction soon. I will keep updates going as the project progresses, as I live in Steelhouse. Renderings below. Aerial Plan: Lighting Rendering Looking from East to West: Lighting Rendering Looking from West to East: OUT Approach to Bridge from Downtown: Truss Uplighting Detail on Span: Looks pretty cool. I just hope they can vary the colors on that Pylon and Ramp.
  3. The Matthews, NC Thread

    I couldn't find a thread about Matthews, or generally about the small towns right around CLT, so I'm making this for all things regarding my home town of Matthews! Is anyone else from the area, or live there? There is some development happening now and down the road, but I haven't seen any info on it on the boards or on the development maps. First, I noticed another parcel in the North End district, right along N Trade St, is now under construction, but I can't find any info about it anywhere. Anyone have any insight about it? I'm loving how North End is looking and feeling. As they continue to connect more and more streets around downtown they're really expanding the urban footprint. Also, the Silver Line talks have made me interested in how Matthews will develop its eventual TOD areas. Anyone think that once the Silver Line gets funded (God/Allah/Ganesh-willing), Matthews will have the potential to become a mini-urban center outside of CLT? Like Sommerville, MA or something? Food for thought. Another is one I don't know how to feel about. Plantation Estates (Which has a big retirement community complex up Fullwood Ln on 51) is expanding onto the wooded parcel across the street from the big Methodist Church on S Trade St, behind that ever-present brick wall that's always been there. Here's another story that talks about the local concerns. Okay, sure, I understand. The Boomers are aging, they want places to feel at home. And elderly citizens are a stable tax base to have in a municipality (no kids to use up the public services/schools), as well as wanting to live in walkable communities. But my biggest issue is them gating it. Which I understand, they also want safety. But when you look at how adjacent the parcel is to the downtown gridded-street network, it seems like a waste of what could have been a well-designed SOUTH End district. But fortunately, the developer is going to extend the four-mile creek greenway from its current terminus that spits out onto Trade St, so that it wraps all around its property, along Fullwood and Trade, and connecting to Freemont. So that is nice for the suburbs further out there, at least. I am wondering if I'm just too young to appreciate diversifying your age demographics. Anyway. Any thoughts? Opinions about Matthews? News updates?

  7. Skywalk in Downtown

    I did this post on the Grand Rapids Skywalk awhile back, and I just looked back at it and I realized, that I am missing a lot of information. Specifically I am looking at some background and history on the Skywalk system in Grand Rapids. How did it get started? Where was it started? Why was it started? That sort of thing. I think it would be interesting to take a deeper look at this. Also is the Skywalk a city initiative? Meaning do they fund and build it or is this built and paid for by the building owners themselves? Or is it a combination of both? I also created this cool Bing Map which shows the Skywalk and identifies all the buildings that are attached to the skywalk. I am telling you that Bird's Eye view on Bing is awesome. It also made me take a closer look at identifying the separate but unconnected skywalks on the Medical Mile and within the GRCC campus. I never really thought of those examples either, but I guess I will throw those in as well. So if you have any information on those skywalk systems please let me know. Thanks for your help.
