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'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.

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.

It looks like the city is going to raze and remove the old house that sits back off College just south of Formosa restaurant.  That spot would make a nice little park, as it sits in the floodway as far as I know.

      I've noticed recently that the apartment leasing company MAA (Mid-America Apartment Communities) has been buying/putting up their signage on many apartment buildings/complexes in the Charlotte area. I haven't been able to find many details about this, but just a few examples I can think of are 1225 South Church, now MAA 1225, the apartments across from the Harris Teeter in Southend (can't recall the prior name off the top of my head) and Phillips Place in Southpark. I've also noticed their distinct signage on complexes/buildings that I know have been around for years. Due to the general consistency in their branding, it's noticeable when they slap their very distinct and corporate logo on anything, new or recently acquired. 
      I was hoping to start a discussion, or at least catalog how many Charlotte area properties they own. Whether they build new, or simply prefer to acquire/rehab properties, and poll the UP crowd on their general perception of this company and ones like it who appear to be creating a small monopoly on the rental market in the Charlotte area and how this might affect things moving forward.

      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:
