Future Skyline Rendering

yea for sure. But its really just proposed at this time. Keep in mind over the years no less than 5 different high rises have been proposed in Elizabeth. To me though, the grid system of Elizabeth will inspire high rise construction one day.

Less bullish than you because I don't feel the Streetcar will ever have very high usage, there seems to be neighborhood resistance to height, and the roads there are already kind of a mess.  I'd love to be wrong though, because the most helpful thing in Charlotte will be to expand dense and taller buildings near uptown rather than corporate parks in the burbs

Look closely at the rendering between DEC and LUT to see DEC2 rising between Gantt and St Peter's.

 

You were correct! They announced it yesterday!

I think no city right now whose developments are making their city as dense as Charlotte right now, (excluding NY, Chicago). I think there is a good base now to spread further around the loop and diffidently get something going on the north end. And even Camp North End because South End is creating this really nice flow from Uptown with a smaller skyline.

In reality there are no concrete plans as of right now for either Brooklyn or Levine's land so no need to include them unfortunately.

Miscellaneous views featuring all of the currently announced developments and massings of what is rumored at Legacy Union and Spirit Square (per RDF).

Awesome work! Makes me miss working with SketchUp! One question. What about Brooklyn Village?

Is that tower at Legacy Union confirmed to be bigger than the BOAT? If so I could almost forgive the suburban-esque architecture.

Don't think so, pretty sure it's RDF's educated guess about where SunBB&Trust are going and how much they are scouting for.

The pinkish buildings are what I would consider rumors at this point, so none of those should be considered confirmed in size, shape or height.  The ones shown in gold have either broken ground or gone through some portion of land development review process and/or show positive signs of movement.

I'll look into adding what is currently shown in the Brooklyn Village proposal.

Confirmed? No way José. Just know what BBTSuntrust is shopping for, and think this would be the most logical place. The question is would whoever builds the building create exactly the amount of space they need, or create 30% more or so, to lease out in addition. Could be the difference between 500 feet and 650-700.

Well done origin, and thank you! This thread is actually what first got me reading (lurking) Urbanplanet many years ago.  I've always enjoyed these sketches.

Pretty wild guys. I added Ally Center and DEC2 to this. 

This looks absolutely amazing! You did a fantastic job. DEC2 will fight in into the skyline perfectly, and so will Ally.

That looks fantastic!  One of my favorite views bc of how dense it looks and that the Vue adds to the cluster (usually secluded).  Would FNB poke out above that treeline you think? 


Nope, it’ll be well off to the right of the picture. Further broadening the view.

I could photoshop it tho...
