A lot of progress being made at the Park Seneca Building. Also construction fencing around the building where the new Sharonview Credit union is going. 9d4df80bad839f3b4858dd99c1c4e8ce.jpg

^^ Sorry had posted this in the Southpark Neighborhood Forum, didn't know a Montford forum existed.   Here is the rendering though.

Does anyone have any information on this project?  It is still a pending 2015 Rezoning, with multiple site revisions.

Also, there is a rezoning at the corner of Reece and Park, right by Park Road Shopping Center.  Razing the 4 or so single family homes for 6 townhomes.

I saw a sign up for a new Smashburger in the corner of Park and Montford (across Montford from jimmy johns). I guess since the rezoning for the apts or townhomes that fell apart a year ago this stretch of park rd will turn into fast food restaurants and banks now

used to be a chiropractors office in the building.

I noticed this morning they put fencing up around the temporary parking lot next door to the Burtons restaurant in park rd shopping center.  Does anybody know what this will be? Bank? Restaurant? Fast food?

Dentistry of the Carolinas is moving from their Montford location to the new food lion strip center in Dilworth. Any ideas as to what may be taking it's place on Montford?

Park Lanes is expanding with rooftop bar and private event space according to the Biz Journal

" 10 Park Lanes says expansion is in its future. It is seeking city approval for a project that will add a rooftop bar — complete with sunset views — and private space for bowling and gatherings, says Ray La Placa, operations director."

This might be a stupid question from a devoted urbanist, but where the hell does everyone park for Montford businesses?

Some of those businesses have their own parking. Otherwise, up and down the street or at the parking lot belonging to that big shopping center (sorry, the name isn't coming to me).

ParkTowne Village.  There will soon be vehicular and pedestrian connections there.

I doubt there will be any connections seen park towne and montford. The owner put the fence up to keep people from parking in the lot and walking to montford. It was mainly restaurants employees parking there and walking to work on montford. Then people were leaving trash in the parking lot. The owner  was partners with Ghazi(sleezeball) on the original epicenter.  They don't speak anymore. 

Got an email yesterday that Montford was chosen for the next open streets Charlotte in October. To bad the greenway isn't finished to montford

There is a rezoning for the property that Southside is located on.  Proposed razing of Southside and building a 9100 SQFT building up on Montford with parking behind.

With all this going on, shouldn't the city's plan to revamp the Montford streetscape come into play? It would be a waste to see the Southside replacement to not be guided into doing the right thing.

There is less parking with the new larger building than with the old building, this will just make parking worse.

I thought this forum was strictly against parking?

I don't live in that neighborhood and there's not enough public transportation to get to Monford easily. I have planned to go to dinner over there quite a few times and could not find a place to park and went somewhere else to eat.
