It is the fact of dealing with governmental agencies that draws the process out.  every joint venture with a government agency takes much longer due to the bureaucracy you have to go through and additional scrutiny.  If this land was simply transferred to a private company yes things would move much faster.  However this is government owned land that can't be done. 

Bingo, thank you. The due diligence is the government. Actually physically meeting with a council of people who represent different areas and different interests, and do not meet but generally about once a week.

What bureaucracy? UMUD offers the broadest range of entitlements of any zoning district in Charlotte. With virtually no height limits in UMUD, the sky's the limit.

you don't need to explain zoning to me.

Now I knew something like this could happen I leave town and there is a turf war.  Remember who is the self appointed burger King of Charlotte and King of all sweet doughnuts and that would be me.  

anyway it is great to see this long talked about project finally underway and the temporary train station will be so much better than the existing station and location.

You are without question the King of Krispy Kreme!  Better get busy working on those green doughnuts for this weekend!

This shot makes all this land look SO much more developable. 
There is plenty of developable land on East Trade too, and that is why I am realizing Trade Street is a actually a better spot for the light rail than Brookshire, Stonewall, Carson, or whatever else. Plus, even Stonewall will never match the sheer job density within two blocks of the Square.

How much of presence does BlackRock have in Charlotte? Would that be a back-office expansion of some sort?  Is that the potential relocation someone mentioned from the Nashville forum?  Excited about the others too.  Hopefully, some of the others start to announce locations.  I would like to see spectrum taken, but think one or two of the others could anchor a yet announced location Uptown.  Cousins still hasn't announced whatever they conspicuously alluded to on an investor call last year.   RDF, in your 2022 silhouette it wasn't lost on me that there were two towers in South End, which means they would have to be announced soon to be present in 2022.

Thats Legacy 2 and 3. Not Southend. And BlackRock I was just throwing out there, randomly.
