Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

Recommended Posts

From looking at the layout and the remaining, giant lot next to the parking deck along Mint...I would love to see an open-air complex that engages the street/pedestrian and especially along mint to the stadium. Would be integrated with the promenade. Multiple floors of retail and would have a hotel and condo tower above that...a mini LA Live vibe.

I disagree and think that is a big overstatement.  LU is not even done yet and we have seen 3 office buildings and 1 mega garage all with ground floor retail.  Across the street Ally Center has a prefab garage that has ZERO ground floor retail and faces a 19 story office building and the largest hotel in the city College St side.   Charlotte has been used to having 1 tower on a block maybe two this first block of Tryon will have at least 3 towers of varying heights.  

Sure theres a lot of impact, but walk on Hill Street, for the entire two block stretch of Legacy Union, and behold, the ugliest backyard in the whole city, facing one of the most heavily travelled highways.

While I think these buildings look fabulous, and a huge economic boost to the city, and will ultimately lead to more people downtown....

 

This place gets a huge “F” on doing anything for the walkability  or anything pedestrian related. So far. 

"Walkability" to the elevator to the parking garage on the 4th floor.  :tw_tounge_xd: Only thing there is benches ... to sit on.  Maybe we can organize a bench game to make it more fun!

How many buildings do y’all think there will be to finishing up both lots for LU. I think there will be maybe 3/4 more. And hopefully only one more office because this area needs residential and maybe one hotel near the stadium.

I think at least 3 more towers one on the Tryon block but room for 2 if hotel is involved and at least 2 more huge towers on the Church Mint block.   I think another office tower will go up on the corner of Stonewall and Tryon around the same height at the Legacy 2 give or take.  Photo today

Hopefully they give more color variety

I really like that manicured, little lawn.  

If only this lawn served as a replacement to all that useless anti-urban lawn along 277.

Yep. What you see is what you get. 

Great! It’s looking good then. Can’t wait for all the tenants to move in there and Alley. This area is going to be so full of life
