I'm going on what the CBJ and Observer reported. The uptown store is 47K sf; SouthPark is 42K. Waverly is 40K.

They’ve backed off that number twice in the media. CBJ and Observer included

Next time you're in town, go to SP. The uptown store appears far larger. And the veggie section there is just as tiny.

I guess it's all what you're used to. The store next to my usual hotel in San Francisco (corner of Franklin and California) is the size of the uptown HT.

The SS Whole Foods is about 36.000 sq ft around the same size as the Huntersville store.  Their SouthPark store was always meant to be the flagship for the region and Waverly is a big store due its suburban location and it serves a huge wealthy area.

I’m used to 7,000 sq feet max grocery stores, being a South Brooklyn resident. SP store which I shop at every Christmas, Fourth of July and Christmas definitely feels more compartmentalized and less open and airy, but don’t confuse that with larger. Uptown felt so small to me. Highly functional and great, but small.

I noticed something about the wall today that will bug me ever so slightly (at least until the other hotel blocks it). On the side facing Caldwell there are four spots where it looks like the decorative metal has either broken off or has been bent back. They are really small and most likely wouldn't be noticed when driving by, but sitting at that light you are just staring at them. If you have ever had a TV with a dead pixel you can picture what it looks like.

The only reason why this kinda bothers me is that now I'm wondering how this will look after a few bad storms come through.

      I posted this under the general "Misc. Uptown Projects" but being a 226 foot tower on an empty surface parking lot, I think this has the potential to get things moving in re-developing the South Brevard/CTC corridor...
      I have been waiting for this project to publish the site plans....

      Finally seeing some motion on the parcels across S Brevard from the CTC (this is just crappy surface parking lot now....)
      19 story tower (will be marketed as 20 story) according to @ricky_davis_fan_21 it will be a 226.67 feet tall!

      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/
