Midtown Fayetteville

13 posts in this topic

I thought it might be useful to have a thread for Midtown development, since not all of the new development happening is along College Ave.

Here's is a new row of townhouses in a development called "Abshier Heights", which is directly behind Evelyn Hills Shopping Center.  These first two look like thye have massive front porches/decks.  Pretty decent modernism.

Here's a new retail building going in next to Tacos 4 Life.  And a view of those Abshier Heights condos behind.

Here are a couple of pictures of a dense apartment/townhome development under construction on Sycamore, a block off College Avenue.  This is west of the Daisy Exchange building that replaced the decrepit old Long John Silver's last year.

Here's an update on those apartments on Sycamore.  They sit a 1/2 block west of the Daisy Exchange building.  I also noticed that the SW corner which used to be a bar is shown as "under contract".  If that site redevelops in a similar form-based format as these two projects, there will be a nice little node of density at that intersection.

Here's one of the New School buildings underway from Township, and the new furniture store being put where the old military surplus store used to be next to Pesto Cafe.

Found this rendering of the Starbucks building that is supposed to go in next to CVS on College north of Township.  I noticed they were building retaining walls around the site today.

Pretty much the same as the rest of their Starbucks anchored developments.  I guess if they concept works then go with it.

Updates on Bolder Coffe (old Arvest) and Weathered Goods.

 

They knocked down the entire old bank drive thru.

Here's the finished product of the building that replaced the old EZ mart.  Looks like it is a free-standing Verizon store.  Nothing exciting, but a huge improvement for that lot.

The former Taco Bell on North College Ave is now showing as being "Under Contract".

      Figured that since this is getting to be more likely to happen lately, it deserved its own topic:

      Thought a thread for bicycle-related infrastructural and program developments seemed appropriate. Post any news related cycling in Richmond. Also, feel free to share any articles that were previously shared in broader threads here on bicycles. 
      Just resharing the article on the bike-share program coming to Richmond because I came across another curious article (see 2nd link) on how Milwaukee's bike-share program teamed up with their Housing Authority in order to ensure accessibility to lower- and low income neighborhoods.

      It has taken forever, but Tallahassee is beginning to tap into its potential of becoming a more thriving densely populated city.  The rapid development of Gaines Street-College Town and a proposed Florida State University Arena District is changing the entertainment landscape of Tallahassee with more developments current under construction and in the works:

      I couldn't find a thread about Matthews, or generally about the small towns right around CLT, so I'm making this for all things regarding my home town of Matthews! Is anyone else from the area, or live there? There is some development happening now and down the road, but I haven't seen any info on it on the boards or on the development maps. 
      First, I noticed another parcel in the North End district, right along N Trade St, is now under construction, but I can't find any info about it anywhere. Anyone have any insight about it? I'm loving how North End is looking and feeling. As they continue to connect more and more streets around downtown they're really expanding the urban footprint.

      Also, the Silver Line talks have made me interested in how Matthews will develop its eventual TOD areas. Anyone think that once the Silver Line gets funded (God/Allah/Ganesh-willing), Matthews will have the potential to become a mini-urban center outside of CLT? Like Sommerville, MA or something? Food for thought.
      Another is one I don't know how to feel about. Plantation Estates (Which has a big retirement community complex up Fullwood Ln on 51) is expanding onto the wooded parcel across the street from the big Methodist Church on S Trade St, behind that ever-present brick wall that's always been there. Here's another story that talks about the local concerns. Okay, sure, I understand. The Boomers are aging, they want places to feel at home. And elderly citizens are a stable tax base to have in a municipality (no kids to use up the public services/schools), as well as wanting to live in walkable communities. But my biggest issue is them gating it. Which I understand, they also want safety. But when you look at how adjacent the parcel is to the downtown gridded-street network, it seems like a waste of what could have been a well-designed SOUTH End district. But fortunately, the developer is going to extend the four-mile creek greenway from its current terminus that spits out onto Trade St, so that it wraps all around its property, along Fullwood and Trade, and connecting to Freemont. So that is nice for the suburbs further out there, at least. I am wondering if I'm just too young to appreciate diversifying your age demographics.

      Anyway. Any thoughts? Opinions about Matthews? News updates?
