According to a reliable source at the James Robertson Apartments, the father and son are fighting over the sale or no sale of the 1929 apartment building. Once that is resolved the issue of condo conversion or demolition can be realized. Remember, the new or future owners of the Renaissance want to build a second tower either on that site or the empty parking lot behind Hume Fogg high school.

According to a source at the MTA I spoke to today, the 10 story MTA facility to be built on Charlotte and 5th Avenue will break ground almost immediately and be finished in 2007 if the residential zoning variance is reached. Currently, residential is not allowed in the area, but approval of privately held residential units for the top of the structure is expected soon.

Concrete piles or caissons are now fully visable at the site of the Suntrust Plaza. In this writers opinon, the building will be topped out before the end of the year. All of 2007 will be the construction of the interior of the building.

Thanks for the update. Very good stuff indeed. I had forgotten about the MTA project, and here it is about to break ground. I'm certainly looking for a resolution of the James Robertson Apts and looking forward to see the Sun Trust rising this coming year.

Please let it be a condo conversion. To demolish the last Art-Deco high rise in the city would be a tragedy. :(

I like this MTA/residential facility. It'll sure add some life to that corner of downtown and open up Dederick Street as a safer, cleaner place...making the view from the new Courthouse Plaza observation area pretty sweet.
