Crescent Stonewall Station

Looks like Crescent is ready to rock and roll on their other site on Stonewall as this was filed today:

 

Crescent Uptown

• Detailed Scope of Work: Mixed-use development with ground floor retail, structured parking, mid-rise apartments, and high-rise apartments. Approximately 440 units and 47,000 sf of retail.

 

RDJ was pretty darn close! Love all that retail. And agree with what atlvr said below, wish there was hotel but you almost gotta figure there will be a phase 2.

^ I'd be lying if I didn't saw I was disappointed with the lack of hotel in the plans.  Maybe there is a phase 2 component.  It's such a big site.

It will be interesting to see the renderings if they say "mid and high rise" apartments for 440 units. I'm guessing a high rise tower with say ~300 units and then 140ish on top of the retail in a midrise? Perhaps wrapping the structured parking deck? Agreed with the sentiment that no hotel component is disappointing... However, perhaps that's phase 2 or Crescent may have other grand plans in uptown. 

 

Side note, looks like someone is having fun with Accela today...

47k sq ft of retail sure sounds like there will be a grocer there.  Unless anyone knows otherwise, I still suspect this is Whole Foods.

Didn't RDF say a german grocer wanted the space?

 

Since I don't know anything about German grocers other than Aldi, I hope it is a Whole Foods.

I thought the German thing was for Tryon Place (and not Crescent Stonewall)

And like clockwork, here's an article in the Observer by our friend Ely on the development: http://cltdevelopment.blogspot.com/2015/02/apartment-plans-moving-forward-at.html

BTW - he did give a shoutout to UP detectives are here. Job well done again guys! :thumbsup:

The best part of that article was where it said Crescent confirmed the plan and said expect to see more information soon :)

It would be neat if Crescent moved forward with both projects at the same time.

They are stockpiling cash, I wouldn't be surprised.

Pretty cool that Ely gave UP a shoutout.

 

I almost wanted to say he should have linked to the board in the shoutout, but then we might end up with some of the Charlotte Observer commenters. :shudders:

I can't imagine how terrible the lives of a few of those posters must be. Everything they post is negative, even when there is good news. 

 

There could be a news article about Charlotte being named the greatest city in the world, leading to 50 Fortune 500 HQ relocations leading to the highest average salaries in the world and 0% unemployment in Charlotte and they'd find something to complain about.

They would say uptown is running out of parking lots and they need to build a Ballantyne clone near Carowinds

I am so happy living in Charlotte since 1985. I moved from a city that was losing population and jobs.

Also it was nice to get back to my home state.

Looks like Whole Foods has been confirmed by Charlotte Restaurant Traffic:  http://charlotterestauranttraffic.com/news/whole-foods-coming-uptown/#.VNn4efnF91A

 

 

Wow, this is going to be huge.  The connectivity between Southend and Midtown to Uptown just increased significantly.  I also think this will help to push development farther down Stonewall on the other empty plots owned by the city.  Woo hoo!

Wow... Game changer! I agree with ah59396, with the increased connectivity now it will push development further down Stonewall...I wouldn't be surprised to see those other empty plots scooped up rather quickly now.

      I lived in a high-rise condo uptown for a few years, when you looked out over the city, the 6-7 story mid-rise condo building had the A/C units setup in little grids all around the roof.  And same thing for our building, at the top of our building there is a rooftop terrace and if you looked over to one side you would see the A/C units lined up in nice groups of 4-6 units. The picture of the Stonewall Station apartment condo's brought this back for me (see picture below)
      When I was looking at it, each grouping almost perfectly corresponds to a footprint of a small 6-8 panel solar array.
      Benefits:
      With commercial solar panels at 21+% efficiency, a condo tower or mid-rise building could cover all the common electrical needs with these arrays + a decent battery backup. No one can argue that it is ugly, because this would be about a 12-24 inches above the already ugly A/C units on the roof. You are still connected to the grid for backup power. (need to run some simulations) but COA (HOA for condos) costs could be tamed or even lowered based on actual design and sun exposure for a particular condo. Drawback:
      Initial cap-ex of construction is higher. lets say it is $200k for the full solar array system with 200kWh battery storage  (based on https://electrek.co/2016/11/14/tesla-powerpack-2-price/ costs) if the building has 200 units that is $1000 more at sale of the condo unit... Would love your thoughts.

      Just went by the new RiverLights development off River Rd south of Wilmington. This is a great new master planned community over 1400 acres and with river access. They are building a great restaurant building right on the river and will have boardwalks and parks along the river. Plus there is some retail with apartments or condos above. Del Webb has started their age restricted community already in the community and I think other model homes are opening soon. Looks like a great new community. Could not find a master plan of it anywhere so if you know of one share it. Here is there webpage for the community http://www.riverlightsliving.com/
