Exactly, location of this is the biggest head scratcher to me..there are plenty of empty lots that would have been 10x better than this location.  Rent will be too expensive to be located in a so-so (iffy) area.  Like some have alluded, I don't see this rising anytime soon, if at all, however, if they insist being in that area, I'd prefer this spot:

Just to be clear, you're not indicating that the location is inside that cloverleaf, are you (where you have that yellow star)?  It looks like the location is on the opposite side of that image, where you see a gravel parking lot.  It's next-door to the 514 10th St. apartment building (which has barber and hair salons at street level), and The Garrison (condos) will be directly behind it.  So this is already a fairly residential location.  The only problem I see with the location is the ADM Trucking Company across the street with its ugly silos.

Correct inside that cloverleaf is owned by NC DOT and yes it is next to Circle K and the Garrison IF it gets built.

Whoops. Read the article much? But this thread title should be changed to "on the edge of 4th Ward".

That's not the craziest location, as long as the silver line happens. Fourth Ward is nice all the way to the freight tracks.

Yes, i read the article. I was responding to the person who was worried about music factory traffic.

Hope this doesn’t turn out to look like Skyhouse! It would be amazing to have this entire structure bricked. It would be somethin different...for once

Wonder if this will get built and here is your rendering for it.  32 story tower in 4th Ward by the grain silos. 

https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2019/09/20/development-group-increases-unit-count-at-proposed.html

That would block some of that amazing view coming into Uptown on the Brookshire, but it will be imposing as Hell so close to the highway.

Uhm, that is not happening, not in 4th Ward, the blocks of old Victorian homes are going to prevent that... and for a good reason.

You have a bunch of fields and/or parking lots in first and second ward, how about we use that land up first.

Eh, this isn't really close to them though, and what's it blocking? If this was like square in the middle of 4th ward park, or if for some reason they decided to move the discovery place or build on top, I'd understand. But this is in a far flung corner on semi industrial land. Not to mention that if 4th ward was cool with Skyhouse and the public housing there, they'll be more than fine with a high end tower on the periphery. Probably couldn't even see it with the trees. Now if this was in Dilworth or Myers Park, the NIMBYs would be out in force, seems that anything above the treeline there pisses people off.

Hey, if 4th ward doesn't want it, place that bad boy at LU.  That's the kind of height I want the hotel/residential aspect to have at Legacy Union.

I would say Fourth Ward is desperate for this. There is no momentum in fourth ward and the homeless people are taking over.

Agree, but man, asking rent is going to be too expensive to be bounded by 277, a not-so-safe gas station, & a milling factory.  You are very right about the homelessness unfortunately, especially under those bridges.  Location is still perplexing to me for such a high-end looking tower.  It would be a great catalyst for the area though.

I'd say this has about as realistic of chance of happening, as Trump Charlotte did.

I don’t know is this project will happen, but I can see a development like this somewhere in that area.  It would  always be an outlier due to 4th Ward and the cemetery

you misunderstood his point. he's saying to skyline will never fill in between this building and the rest of uptown. 

Thank you, this is exactly what I was referring to in my comment.

This is not a joke... the camp tent off I-277 at Graham keeps growing...

As for development ... the best hope for 4th ward is Charlotte Gateway Station district and making sure it spreads all the way towards NC Music Factory / Avid HQ

Isn't the Silver line going right through this area?

Agree. This is this cycles' 210 Trade.  We could not ask for a clearer sign that this is the top of the cycle.

I agree with some on here who think this is not the best location for this tower. It would look better if it were built in SouthEnd where the Cigar Club building is (Tryon and Morehead). It would look very imposing driving down the Belk freeway.
