North End Projects - Camp NorthEnd, Lockwood, Greenville, Double Oaks

Recommended Posts

There are one or two art studios there as well. Last time I was there, some funky art event was beginning as my event was ending. Fancy drinks, artistic weirdness projected on various walls, trendy looking people....

Looked like a cool time.

That's great, love seeing this area develop. It seems like 20 years I've been hearing about the plans for the area, but truly the work has just gotten underway and I expect lots of new things to continue. If I think about what the Music factory looks like in 2006 vs what it is today, this NorthEnd area has a lot of potential to spur on this area. I have start ups I would love to move in over there before prices get too high

I stopped in on a recent Sunday Morning for some coffee and to check out all the new stores there. Very cool vibe already with the small amount of space that has been refurbished. In May they are planning on doing a farmer's market so stay tuned for more details.

Anyone else getting a future dystopic totalitarianism vibe? 

I can't think of anything more Charlotte than that!

2,200 sf? That's only like 10-15 people.  Maybe 22,000 sf?

See that CBJ and CO both reporting as 2,200 sf.  While small, cool to see, along with Duke taking space at Thompkins Mill.

No, it is 2,200 sf. They are only putting their software (UX and some others) peeps there, not a large team.

Here is the Business Journal about Ally Bank's innovation center and yes it would seem to be a small team.  But this is important for Charlotte and for this project which might get the ball rolling on other Fintech tenants.

I wasn't trying to diminish it. I think it's a good move on the banks part, and it helps North End maintain the momentum.

Hopefully the road realignment of N. Tryon proceedes. Dalton area really needs some cleanup. 

Construction for the N. Tryon Business Corridor plan was supposed to commence this year, January according to what I last read.  I've also heard they will be doing an overhaul of Dalton after completing the N. Tryon corridor, but I couldn't find anything about it online.

They're building it now. Ride up N Tryon and look in front of the WSOC building and you can see the first part of it being built.

I think 1 way pairs are great personally, especially on high volume streets, as long as there are an appropriate amount of stop lights ( i.e. every major intersection and no more than 700 feet between light)

South Blvd has choked on it's own success, and a 1 way pair would really really help.....too late now.

1-way pairs have pretty significant pros and cons. My main issue with this one is that it's so short. It's going to help for the 5 blocks or so, but the rest of N Tryon still sucks.

      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.
