thanks for the update! im not sure if im feeling the tower homes design...but still the density makes it a great addition, to southside.

that 600 bellemeade...is that the 20 townhome proposal near the ballpark?

Those tower homes are odd-looking. They slightly resemble the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, TX which was burned down in the 1990s. :blink:

Are they LEED-certified?

I like the Southside single family homes, but those "tower homes" are ugly.

Thanks ezcheese for the photos. Ive been meeaning to get down there and take some photos of the progress of the Tower Homes. Actually the tower homes dont lookas bad as they appear. If you view it from the opposite side on Lee Street, they look very nice. I'll wait til they are finished before I give my final judgement on them. But that style is actually somewhat common in urban northeast cities but they usually have more brick. Whats intersting is that they have rooftop terrace with a great view of Greensboro's skyline.

A good brick facade would definitely be an improvement, IMO.

THanks for sharing the pics. The tower homes are definitely different. I like the variety you have in Southside.

365K for a condo? Is it just me or is the real estate market getting a bit out of hand?

365K for a condo? Is it just me or is the real estate market getting a bit out of hand?

it is a bit surprising to me as well. they can't build them fast enough though. everything is selling very well in downtown. i have spent the last couple of hours reading over all the different projects going on downtown and it just blows me away.

a peek over the fence into the bogg garden, which is located across northline ave. from the new development. if you haven't been there, you should definitely check it out! there are tons of critters that hang out in there.

you can reach the bogg garden at the corner of hobbs rd. and starmount farms dr.

I went by that condo building under construction on West Washington St near the Blandwood Mansion and it basically complete on the outside. Downtown is booming.

That building looks like a Smokey Bones restaurant.

That will be a MIMI'S Cafe. A neat chain out of california, serves a lot of french country home style food.

There are some new ones in Baltimore very similar to those in Greensboro. I think they fit better with the streetscape in Baltimore than in Greensboro, however.

I don't mean to be crude, but those tower homes are repugnant. Great pics though.

i think the tower homes look a lot better from lee street for some reason. maybe because they look taller since they're on a hill.

i'll be taking some more pictures around town as soon as all this rain stops.

They just look out of place to me, and not all that aesthetically pleasing--and I have seem them in person. But that's just me.

thanks for the pics! I was just about to tak epics of the Bellemeade townhomes and post them. You beat me to it :).

The townhomes are located only a block or two from the ballpark so the stadium is attracting development. One reason why I think these townhomes are expensive is because they have elevators in each of the townhomes. a number of the units appear to be 4 levels too. They are a bit pricey but overall I like the development.

As for the Market Street Condo photos. I think its an excellent case of reusing historic buildings. btw in the photo you can see the dismantling of the Old Wachovia Building for Center Pointe is well under way :)
