Fantastic news!  Will be a great intersection of retail right there. Excellent we are fixing problems/issues of the past, however, makes me wonder...how in the F did Ally build that giant parking deck with Zero retail slots in the bottom. I mean even the light rail parking decks planned for the future with retail. To not have made accommodations for future retail already built in to the bottom was poor judgement imo. It’s facing what I consider our (current) convention center hotel, the Westin and regions tower. Also one of the gateways into south end . In 2020 we are retrofitting parking decks with retail. Last year 2019, Ally built a giant wall of a parking along college...wonder how many years it will take to convert the bottom there to retail smh.

I thought the Former novare parking deck (by ally & catalyst) was built to support retail at least eventually.

i thought a grocery store was even rumored in it?

So, (directed to RDF) is this thing really going to happen???  This is behind The Silos near the ADM facility.

A new residential tower on the northern edge of uptown and a hospital in south Charlotte were among the rezoning petitions approved by Charlotte City Council on Tuesday night.

Carolina Development Group NC LLC's petition to build 350 apartments and up to 6,500 square feet of retail space in a tower at North Smith and West 10th streets was approved. A site plan filed with the rezoning says the project could include condos or apartments, but, at the petition's public hearing last month, a representative of the developer told council that the planned units would be apartments.

The project would be the latest apartment tower in this cycle, with other developments like Museum Tower by Childress Klein and Ascent Uptown by Greystar adding high-rise buildings with rental units to uptown within the past several years. Notably, no condo towers in uptown have broken ground since the recession, despite demand for such product.

From the O.  Looks like this one grew a few floors..

“The high-rise is expected to be 37 stories, according to minutes from a zoning committee meeting. That’s a slight increase from a previous rezoning plan, which called for 32 stories.  The structure would be significantly taller than most of the nearby residential buildings, though not as tall as the 50-story complex, The Vue, a few blocks away.”

So if it's 37 stories now, that's just a tad higher than the Avenue which is 425' tall? Assuming the normal residential floor heights.

Such an odd place for this. Going to look odd down there by itself, assuming it gets built.

The retail component is equally odd to me.  My guess is that it would pretty exclusively serve the building occupants since that tiny sliver of N. Smith dead ends at the adjacent train tracks and back entrance to the ADM plant.  There is zero foot traffic there, unless you count the homeless who use it as a cut through from the tent camps off 277 to 4W/uptown.  Nothing else will make it there.

I could've sworn we have already discussed this building when it was initially proposed. I thought it was in the NC Music Factory page, but couldn't find it. It is quite the unique location and design. 

 

This proposed Apartment Tower was briefly discussed but I forgot in what thread.  I’m hoping this project starts within 1 Year or less of this rezoning.  If not, then the parcel & Building rights may be sold to another owner to develop the Tower which would probably be a more distant prospect.

You're right, there was a thread already started about this project (link below) and someone else just started another, maybe the mods can consolidate the threads.

But there is a top piece to it so maybe add some feet to that.  I say 455 since the garage floors are about a foot or two more than the average residential floor.

CMPD is on an absolute building spree.  Not sure if everyone noticed but they’re building a lot of Police Stations.  One one Independence, One on W.T. Harris, One in University, One in Ballantyne.

Now if they could just deal with the shortage of Patrol Officers and Detectives.  They’re like 200 personnel short.

To recap: what was a Bank of America branch just a few years ago is now a: Eddie V's, Devon & Blakely, Sukoshi, and Tupelo Honey. 

Isn't there still one more retail spot avail?  I can't remember but it seems like it's between Sukoshi and Tupelo.  It was supposedly a bar/lounge, but you walk downstairs to it.  Like how the Cellar is.

I think that's where Planet Fitness is going.
