    Queens Park

    I know we have long discussed the potential for a new park over the NS rail yard along N Tryon and there have been some UNCC Urban Design projects which have done some blue sky renderings of the park. There has also been a well-organized effort to make this park a reality for about a year now: https://www.queensparkclt.org/ We have discussed all of these things here before (and the Observer and Agenda reported on it last November), but some things have happened behind the scenes recently that make me think this project is now worthy of its own thread. The organization has been around for a while and appears has some money behind it, an executive director, a media relations team and directors from several large urban design firms. Speculative designs on the park have been progressing over the past year and I have heard that developer / financier interest has increased recently. In addition to progress on the design aspects of the project, I hear the organization has gotten the interest of some very prominent people in town (who have been heavily involved in Uptown's redevelopment). More importantly, I have heard from more than one source that NS is open to market-rate offers for the property. As you can tell from the second rendering, the preliminary designs include plenty of office space to make the land purchase plus creating a massive park feasible. The fact that most of this land is in an opportunity zone has also peaked the interest of some potential players. Don't interpret this as saying this will definitely happen, but I think there is enough momentum behind the project now that I think its worth keeping a closer eye on this.
