Likely over the long term. A general site layout without the warehouse was included with plans when it was approved. The development timeline was reported to be 35 years total. 

That will make for a nice downtown for Chesapeake for the next generations.

The apartments/retail on the east side of the parking garage have started going vertical. Foundation work is ongoing on the other side of the garage and for the office building along Volvo. It has bee

I do believe that Chesapeake was open to the idea.

I remember this as well. Greenbrier was the suggested connecting point, although Western Branch/Chesapeake Square may have been suggested as well. Although, I seem to remember they wanted to get the ball rolling by next year (this was about 2015 when it was proposed). I wonder if the Summit Pointe and Amazon developments will make the city reconsider?

Does Chesapeake have a Green Line or any natural limit on its sprawl?

Not officially. They are pushing for denser development along Dominion (future I-87) to conserve agricultural land south of the bridges. There is also a study underway to find ways to encourage development on existing surface parking  rather than raw land. The biggest limit currently is utilities as water & sewer aren’t available in much of the rural parts of the city.

The route that would make the most sense would be having a light rail bridge at Harbor Park, then run it through South Norfolk down Battlefield Blvd. to Volvo Pkwy. Though running it down 464 would also be a possible route, though I don't think that route would reach as many people as down Battlefield would.

Any word of additional tenants here? It seems they’ve done really well leasing up the apartments but the retail and office leasing seem to be sluggish. It does appear site work has started on the next block. 

So far First Watch and Wasserhund Brewing have been announced as retail tenants.

The climate for new office and retail demand will take awhile to recover.

Dollar Tree has quietly updated the renderings on the front page of their website. This second tower looks to be pushing 20 floors. Probably going to have to go back to council to get approval on that.

I'm counting 21.  :)

Work has already begun on the next parking deck on the spot of the old Dollar Tree employee lot. Most of the old lot has been barricaded off and island/pavement demo has started.

That’s been out for awhile. This one is more updated although not as fleshed out.

Screen grab of a rendering for Mosaic taken during the State of the City today. Official groundbreaking is soon although work has already started. Didn’t catch any major announcements but I also skipped through a lot of it.

      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.

      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;

      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.

      The Kmart at 1 Kmart Plaza, near the main hospital, is closing, as per USA Today.  I am told that Bi-Lo is closing as well at some point. 
      What will happen to the site?  It's been a shopping center for at least 50 years.
      With this Kmart closing (clearly the store incurred next to nothing in ongoing capital expenses and likely had very low rent), what does that say about the Haywood Mall Sears closing at some point?
