Providence Road Development

Recommended Posts


These new apartments should have no problem renting up as they have been popular in other large cities.  Overture for those age 55 and above. No Millenials need to apply.  Not assisted living but for active mature adults LOL  and they have elevators too.

There are multiple locations of these Overture apartments in Houston and I know they have leased up quickly.  They are building some of these in Cotswold too but this is a great location walk to shops, Harris Teeter lots of retail

Couple photos of Rea Farms Village this is really coming together.  The retail space looks great and apartments have better finishes than many others.  From Saturday.  Rea Farms Village this will be really big and a focal point for south south Charlotte outside 485 and Union County.

Any word on tenants in Rea Farms? Surely a nice development across from Waverly, However I prefer the style of Waverly.

Heard it is over 70% leased but they are mum on the tenants and restaurants.  Typical Lincoln Harris.

I think this looks great.  It reminds me a little of Baxter Village, but way nicer.

Baxter is nicer in my opinion.

Yes above the retail on one side of the main shopping street is 2 levels of apartments, some retail just looks 2 stories but it really just a tall 1 story building.

What is this suppose to be? I'm guessing a fire station/emergency services but I don't recall the City locating one in this development.

^^^No it is a retail building and pretty sure that is the  huge video screen setup  in that balcony space above.  Here is the site plan

Dude it’s like a Hollywood set, or like Disney world, its so bad. Freaking Greek temple new urbanism, so bad. Everything seems skewed in perspective to be a much bigger building than it is.

Plus That last building looks like a person yelling, “I’m Ugly”

From the folks who brought us Legacy Union...of course it's bad (no offense to admirers of both projects).

I have heard that Lincoln Harris wanted something very different and more upscale than Waverly that Childress Klein developed across the street which I heard he hated the design.  <<< Don't shoot the messenger here just reporting what someone who knows him told me.     I will wait until it finishes out but I do know this:  Rea Farms Village will be super successful just like Waverly is across the street.   People in the suburbs love places like this and they have probably all been to Disney World! 

As for Legacy I love it.

^^ I see no difference between the Avalon (in Alpharetta) and Waverly or Rea Farms....

Avalon is similar architecturally to Waverly.  My only problem with Waverly is the layout.  

Rea Farms belongs in 1992 era Southpark.

^^ my point is that many of the suburban retail plaza developers's do the bare minimum (add a green space or a fountain). But most of the buildings are copy/paste from another project...

I actually think Waverly can evolve into something much better than what it is today.   My hope is that they eventually build a couple of parking ramps in the middle of those parking lots and then wrap buildings around them.

Avalon appears to be much denser, with much less surface parking.  Waverly building design is fine if they did a better job with parking.

Sorry to be crude:

 

But Cary gets this:   http://www.fentonnc.com/

Alpharetta has this: http://www.experienceavalon.com/

 

And we get this absolute architectural piece of crap.  Thanks LH.

I think Waverly looks like Fenton. Maybe a little smaller or slightly more stretched out. They really aren't that different. 

I will say, though (again), that I feel like the parties responsible for designing our buildings /developments around here hate us.
