I thought there was supposed to be an announcement of sorts Jan/Feb ?

haha, lip service my friend. If I had a penny for every time I've heard an announcement date, and it came and went... Well, I reckon I could buy a coca cola in 1985.

The ground floor of this has always been more interesting than skyscrapers. I’m fine with no more high rises until the market settles.

I will be very annoyed if we get a giant parking deck and BofA in the middle of a big field

the uptown apartment market is the most expensive and per the rest of the city has lower occupancy.  High rise multifamily is extremely expensive to build and they might be waiting for Lennar to get off the ground then time their project for delivery about 6-12 months later.   I agree a hotel may come first.  In terms of a strictly condo tower that is still a ways off in Charlotte especially uptown unless it is a conversion of an existing building.  Only a few boutique condo buildings are being built now primarily in Myers Park area.

Myers Park School District goes up Caldwell Street.  Courtside is in the MPSD.

Yes Uptown is still zoned for Myers Park High but it lost Dilworth and AG. These kids will now go to First Ward and Sedgefield Middle. Losing those schools in the elementary years will push families out of Uptown earlier than they probably planned.

Thanks for all of the great photos.  The windows look good.

I'll be back in Charlotte for meetings soon.  I look forward to seeing this.

This project is certainly going to have a major impact from the south

Now imagine Tryon Place in between Duke Energy and 615 College... 

It is going to look packed from that end.

This is a big, big, big deal for parents.  Part of the reason we moved here is we wanted uptown but a good school district. Luckily my oldest won a lottery and is in an awesome charter school. 

But schools will def make a difference to those who started uptown, and want to continue here with their families.

Digging the pink hue from the sun. Great pics from an angle we don’t see terribly often in this thread.

I like to envision future projects when I look at the skyline. I’m imagining an impressionable 401 S. Graham in this shot.

Dominion’s website has views available from 390ft. Not sure if that’s their projected rooftop elevation or not. I’d imagine it’s relatively tentative, though. That’d make it bigger than its abreast neighbors, Element and Catalyst. Its location is what’s exciting to me. That section of Uptown between the main cluster of buildings and the train tracks could always use some more height/density.

Additionally, that Dominion viewpoint shows 3 of the only 5 skyscrapers that were here before 1968: To the left of Ascent was what use to be Wachovia and to the right of Ascent  the 2 buildings of equal height adjacent to each other were the NCNB building and the Johnston Building. Charlotte has come a long way!
