This may be under our radar (or I may have missed it). Office building going up at Old Pineville and Griffith. Easily walkable to Tyvola station.

I would be very pleased to see portions of station adjacent Old Pineville be transformed into boutique office, much like we are seeing on Brevard. We have been waiting a LONGGGGG time for this type of development down here.

Are you using a 2004 version of Google Maps? BELL SOUTH? :tw_lol:

(Kidding aside, it's still the official name of our phone company, d/b/a AT&T Southeast) I didn't realize the phone exchange buildings were still listed like that.

I am a little concerned that the street layout for the apartments has dead ends that don't connect to the surrounding roads.....

Also, that Terrior should be Terroir. French for "the environment of a vineyard". Pinot, Fonsac, Lagrange (barn), Magnum. There is no word "terrior".

Specifically the fact that South Line Dr doesn't intersect with Woodlawn, that seems like a no-brainer. I wonder if the city is at least putting in an easement to connect it in the future.

Would help slow traffic down for sure to have at least a connection point.

I hate dead ends and cul-de-sacs as much as the next urban enthusiast, but...there are two connections to Woodlawn for this (fairly small) development, which seem totally adequate, to me: Nations Crossing on the west side, and Chastain on the east. Nations Crossing has a stop light and will provide good north and west egress from the micro-hood, and Chastain allows easy egress to the east, while also leading south to Springbrook, which connects to Old Pineville. I actually think this is designed pretty well, because Woodlawn is a thoroughfare, like it or not, and this is right by the 77 interchange, where traffic volumes are going to be at the heaviest, and multiple entrances to a small neighborhood in such an area will create big congestion issues. IMO. I'm all for smarter, multi-modal traffic design, but I think unmitigated congestion is everyone's enemy.

Duke Power owns basically all the land to the south, where there's a big sub-station, but I would hope that if there's any possible way in the future to connect Nations Crossing to another street, so that it doesn't dead end, they will. In the meanwhile, Nations Crossing south of Woodlawn is basically an exclusive, stop lighted road for the development that they only have to share with a roofing supply company.

      Not sure if this was posted before, but here's a decent retail conversion of an aging pair of industrial buildings at N. Davidson and 24th. Doesn't really engage the street at all, but should help in bringing more activity to this stretch of N. Davidson.
