You won't have to hold your breath for long, because this building killed 2 birds with one stone (MAP):

Yeah, that building has been a real ... situation for a while now. It makes me think the same property owner also owns the rest of the block between the green building and Magnolia (although maybe it’s just a row of owners that aren’t great with color choices).

Whoever has been selecting paint colors the last couple of repaints for all of those structures doesn’t quite have a “design” eye, unfortunately. The Kinko’s building, in particular, could look much cooler than it is if designed & painted with a bit more finesse.

I like it.

It's colorful and has great contrast between the building and the overhang.

I think there are a few members on this forum who tend to think bland, generic, pedestrian colors on buildings is somehow chic or hip.

BORING.

I wish the building next to it was painted blue.  :P

We wanted to paint them all white just for @JFW657!

Personally, I think painting all the buildings downtown a lovely shade of pink would be FABULOUS...

I recall back in the 80's and possibly 90's when these buildings on Ivanhoe Row....

bars-101029-Ivanhoe-Row-Antiques-Distric 

....were all painted different colors.

I liked it because it made it look like a little European village or something.

Then someone with a "design eye" decided to paint them all white.

Cold and BORING.

      The city council retreat is underway. Ryan Murphy of The Pilot is live tweeting from it. There is a lot of development discussion and focus in here to unpack. I am pretty new here but one development I may have missed or have never seen mentioned is a senior living development next to the fire station.
      Here is the first post of the thread;
      And here's the post referencing the senior living development;

      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.

      Just a link to the MPB staff report.
      I combined Ph 2 tower and Ph 3 former Church Street Station re-work as it seems they are both ramping up to start.

      Dollar Tree is adding 600 jobs and expanding their headquarters. They said they will be building the "tallest building" in Chesapeake. Pictures in the article look to be a town center style environment within the Grennbrier area.
