Would they only accept a business address or would a residential location suffice?

In the shot from the West, do we know what the heck (if anything) is getting built in the undeveloped wasteland behind the stadium? Is that where the Beazer Development is suppose to be built. It is soooooooo much land with NOTHING on it. I mean Nothing !!! Well maybe some torn down Industrial Bldgs., but that is it.

Here is the shot I am referring to


You could fit quite a lot of development in an area that large.

When I drove by the NASCAR HOF site today, I noticed a Convention Center security camera trained directly at the site, no doubt left over from when it was still a parking lot. Wonder if there's any way to link that to a website like they've done for the other downtown projects so we can keep up with the progress.

Click where it used to be it still works. And you can barely see the ritz construction, the view is pretty worthless. The Button sometimes doesn't show up but its magically still there. I use it to watch the park be built.

wow, that's quite an upgrade for oxblue's site. The time lapse is a cool idea. Watching the Avenue timelapse makes you realize how quickly the actual condo portion of the building went up compared to the base. If TTT holds the same, it won't take long before it makes an impact on the skyline.

      The search for this thread was prompted by the big announcement that Crescent Communities is being acquired by Sumitomo Forestry America, a subsidiary of a Japanese firm.
      There are many sides to this transaction:
      Sumitomo Forestry America will pump more capital and is more vertically integrated now to handle future expansion and also sees huge potential in Charlotte. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/latest-news/article209961859.html in June of 2009 Crescent Resources filed for bankruptcy protection -- in June of 2010 they emerged https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/stories/2010/06/14/story2.html Rebranded in 2013 to Crescent Communities. Is Crescent -- being intimately acquainted with the market -- trying to cash out as this development cycle is ending? Or worse -- Crescent sees similarities to 2008 in the economy in general and is cashing out? Lets try to stick in the "market analysis" and stay away from "doom and gloom" - "sky is falling" realm.
      I tried to find an existing thread for this, but the one I found is archived and not open for new posts... and it is from the "Great Recession" days.

      I couldn't find a thread for the River District so I made one. I happen to be really excited about the River District, Most U.S. Major cities are on a river. Charlotte is near a river but not on it and I think River District will fill that hole, Most cities that have a river have lots of shopping and dining options along the river.

      Since we have a Charlotte Greenways thread, I figured we should dedicate a thread to parks in general.
      So, in 2nd Ward topic @kermit brought up the ParkScore by the Trust for Public Land: http://parkscore.tpl.org/city.php?city=Charlotte
      I initially replied there, but this subject should be discussed in depth - and I could not find a thread that was dedicated to Parks overall (not just greenways). In my reply I compare it to Seattle - http://parkscore.tpl.org/city.php?city=Seattle
      The CharMeck Parks and Recreation website has details on all existing parks: https://www.mecknc.gov/ParkandRec/Parks/Pages/default.aspx

      Haven't seen any news articles on this yet but ZipCar will be expanding into Uptown/Southend this summer. The city is providing 6 on-street locations and Zipcar will be providing 6 off-street locations. This is a 2 year pilot after which the city will decide to make it permanent or not.
      Some sample Zipcar locations will be:
      -Romere Bearden Park
      -UNCC/First Ward Park
      -New Bern Station
      Charlotte has been really late to the game in getting a car sharing service but glad it is finally arriving. This will give those of us that live downtown and don't own a car another transportation option for those longer in-city trips where transit takes too long or isn't available.
      I think the city should also partner with Car2Go. I have used this service in DC before and it's a nice alternative to uber/lyft if you don't mind driving yourself...plus you can park wherever you want as long as it its a legal parking spot.
