My apologies for not giving credit to whoever posted this a while back, but  nevertheless... a grand idea and a beautiful design.

^Great to hear...wonder what they can do with this stretch  from the music factory all they way towards crave, those sidewalks are so close to the road and i feel like those lanes are smaller too.  If you're driving, you can't even pass a CATS bus in the other lane...or even worse, the CATS bus coming from the other direction is hanging way over the double yellow lines.  There's just not that much room to expand on either side though.

Yea I have traveled that stretch of Graham for most of my adult life and it is awful. You would have to imagine with what is coming for the Gateway station, light rail and the general growth that this road has got to see an update sometime in the near future. I also wonder how much longer all those old apartments and condos along Graham between like 8th and 5th can last? Many look like they are in considerable disrepair.

New townhome community coming close to Camp Northend from the Biz Journal and new affordable apartment complex coming to N Tryon near Sugar Creek.  Both these rezonings were approved. 

""Hopper Communities' petition to allow up to 69 townhouses in the Tryon Hills neighborhood on North Graham Street, north of its intersection with 24th Street, near the Camp North End development. Part of the 3.1-acre site today includes an auto repair shop. A network of private streets will be built as part of the development.
The NRP Group's petition to allow up to 200 affordable-housing units at West Sugar Creek Road and Penny Way. All apartments will be affordable to households earning 60% of the area median income for the next 15 years. ""

Rezoning petitions by Levine Properties, Lincoln Harris get green light - Charlotte Business Journal (bizjournals.com)

This is exciting! Great views right down North Tryon by that side of CampNorthEnd. Curry Gate the little Indian Restaurant on that corner is excellent. Would love to see someone develop that Wayne's super market lot.

You want to remove the only grocery store in the area? Help me understand why. 

I know Wayne’s isn’t hip like Camp North End, and it’s a vestige of the character and community these neighborhoods used to have...

But I don’t consider demolishing a grocery store progress. Especially one that serves segments of our lower-income populations who are reliant on affordable and close-proximity food options. Ridiculous.

I thought he was simply referring to adding other uses to that property, given it currently is a sprawling sea of blacktop for parking and the lot hardly has any sidewalks on its perimeter for pedestrian access.  I've been to that area multiple times and thought the property seemed prime for "densification."  In addition, a development project that modernizes and strengthens the current structures isn't necessarily incompatible with keeping that grocer or any kind of grocer.

I would LOVE for another grocery store to be a part of that development. I live in this area and also suffer from the lack of a decent grocery store. I can honestly say I have never been in Wayne's but would imagine it leaves a lot to be desired when compared to a modern store. The 4th ward Harris Teeter is lacking a lot itself. I typically go to the monster HT over on South Blvd.

I've been inside of it, and the only "vestiges" I've observed are old age and decrepitude.  Is that the trade-off, suppress any sort of aesthetic sensibility or live in a food desert?

I just hope and pray that part of those private streets included in the townhouse development on 24th includes the extension of Bancroft to 24th. To me it's a NO BRAINER, and I will be sorely disappointed in the city if it's not mandated.

After a nice lunch at CNE yesterday it was clear that any Red Line rail service (should it ever exist) would need to have a CNE stop. It seems undesirable to have commuter rail service blasting through the complex at 40mph a couple times an hour.

Perfect location for a stop.

Yeah, this is going to stick out a bit in the surrounding area. Wonderful to see the investment though.

      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
