Not going to lie, I love the building Arrival is moving into.  I despise the look of 2100 S Tryon.  Please, someone teach me what to appreciate about it.

Not sure which thread this belongs in, but I just came across a Memphis thread for a billion-dollar downtown project there called "The Walk on Union," and wondered why nothing like it has been proposed for Uptown.  I mean, it's Memphis.

Will be interesting to see if they build for a local business expanding or an out of town relocation.

Expect big things on this parcel that Cousins just bought at end of Dec.  Cousins does not have a habit of land banking but developing which means they feel like they have some anchor tenants for both their recent purchases:  the land across from the Railyard along Bland St and now this property along Doggett and W Tremont.   Again they like to build to suit with tenants signed. 

After RailYard deal, Cousins Properties buys more real estate in South End - Charlotte Business Journal (bizjournals.com)

so look for 2 Cousins properties being started or at least announced this year.  

That Tremont Property is a nice piece of property. Something really cool is going to go there I bet.

I would say the Bland St property could be for an existing company that is very nearby that site and mentioned before.

This Doggett and W Tremont property could be for another tenant new to town or is expanding here.  Quite a few fast growing companies in town and one of them has space in Cousins owned building that promised 1000 local jobs.

Yeah, there was never a pause in South End.

Southend = Buckhead Lite?

South end has zero similarities to Buckhead.

I’m not sure if this is news, or if it’s old news and I just don’t remember, but I was at WorldStone at Dunavant and Distribution St yesterday and they told me they are moving in a matter of weeks to the West side because their property had been sold.  There are plans for a specialty type hotel and higher end restaurant (that’s how it was phrased to me) for that site.  I’m not sure if any of the neighboring businesses are also part of that, because the WorldStone site itself doesn’t seem that large to me.  If this is yesterday’s news, can someone refresh me on what this is gonna be again?

Can't find anything in Accela for the site or adjacent parcels.

You guys have hit on my favorite plan for improving  NC's future prospects. Making the Charlotte-Greensboro (plus Winston)-Raleigh corridor into a single labor market using rail would make the urban crescent globally competitive for attracting talent and knowledge industries. It is also an opportunity to reduce carbon outputs and to create more sustainable cities.

The 2009 ARRA grant built the Charlotte-Greensboro tracks up to 110mph top speed specs (NCDOT has decided not to pay to maintain them at that speed level so 89mph is the best we get currently). This would make travel time between CLT-Gboro under an hour and Gboro-Raleigh less than 50 minutes (tracks east of Greensboro would still need substantial upgrades). These travel times would make daily commutes between Greensboro and the two endpoints totally doable (and a good bit shorter than many rail commuters accept in NYC, Boston, Chicago and DC)

In terms of Gross Metropolitan Product, a unified NC Crescent (all the metro areas between Charlotte and Raleigh) would produce $419 billion worth of stuff annually. This would rank us as the 12th largest metro economy, just behind Atlanta and just ahead of Miami. [Charlotte is currently the 21st largest metro economy ($178 billion per year)]

More importantly, yolking these metro's together with high-frequency passenger rail service would:

  • Improve economies in the in between areas (including Greensboro) thanks to some workers in Charlotte and the Triangle seeking out smaller town living along the rail
  • Lower the cost of living for many without increasing carbon outputs.
  • Allow for more interaction between the arts and design communities in the Triad with the R&D and manufacturing communities of Charlotte and Raleigh.
  • Create better connections between the Triangles R&D and Charlotte's finance
  • Connect Charlotte's new medical school with medical research clusters in Winston and the Triangle (Winston rail connector would need improvements)

Without some type of improvement like this, NC's cities are going to choke on traffic, be shunned by the global talent pool (most won't know we exist), and get weighted down by low-wage manufacturing jobs.

Charlotte to Raleigh is a bit too far for robust daily commute flows (even by 110mph rail) but daily commuting from Greensboro to either endpoint is totally feasible. It would look a great deal like the urban system in Switzerland (lots of rail commuting from Zurich (finance) to Basel (R&D) and Basel to Geneva (Service / Global hub). This commuting is done at sub-110mph speeds (Switzerland does not have HSR).  Our equivalent rail network is already half built, all we gotta do is make a few remaining improvements to make it to happen.

Switzerland felt much bigger than that when I visited. Haha
