Great sunset tonight and fencing is up around the Gas-Fired Products site on Tremont Ave. This is now owned by Cousins and they are wasting no-time moving this one forward.

Oh wow.  I work around the corner from there and I've seen delivery trucks coming and going from there as recently as a week or so ago.  I guess they may have been moving things out of the building.  Excited to see what they put in there.

Technically Sedgefield but soil sampling is happening in Parcel D of the Marsh Properties redevelopment: Sedgefield Redevelopment – Sedgefield Redevelopment . Residents in the duplexes have received notice they need to be out by the end of May 2022. 

In my non-expert opinion, the recently completed Edge apartment complex looks really good, compared to other South End apartments. They took care to keep mature trees where possible and the parking deck is completely hidden. 

Yes, they did a commendable job.  I hope the UDO will incentivize that standard of quality as much as practicable.

Both are roughly 275' tall. 

Wow that's aggressive and dense sounding, can't wait for renderings if they release any.  Is the new TOD Zoning Designations the reason that seemingly so many High Rise buildings Planned for Southend are not being discussed or voted on in City Council?  

For the record it seems like anything proposed for more than 100' in Height along the Cherry\Midtown\Elizabeth area stirs up a hornets nest of resistance and requires heated debate & grandstanding in City Council, meanwhile SouthEnd is chugging away at Dense\Tall developments like its a regular thing\business as usual affair.

strange modifications are afoot on the backside of the Tupelo Honey / Pwerter Rose building. I thought it was a tear down and construction staging for the Stiles building? Is this the facade model for the Stiles building?

thinking of this upscale athletic wear retailer coming to Lowes tower maybe the new Nike Live store?

I'd love for Charlotte to have a proper Nike store and with as many people as run along the Rail Trail I think that would be the perfect place for one. The one in downtown Seattle had a running club that would leave from the store, a lot of running clothing and shoes, and a large Seahawks section. If they put one here they could do a lot of Panthers stuff as well as devote some room to Jordan Brand/Hornets.

Completely off topic but why can Charlotte not score on a top tier mixed use development like Fenton or North Hills?   

I think it is because we have much more activity in the inner city in Southend, uptown, etc.    however Ballantyne reimagined with all its retail and housing might even be better than North Hills in the future.  However both Fenton and North Hills are fantastic projects much more suburban in nature.

@kermit do think that could be the mock up of the facade for the Stiles tower for I know of no other reason why they would do anything there.

@Madison Parkitect could be Nike that is a great point.  what area of Charlotte would anyone consider to be the center of running?  I would think the answer would be the Rail Trail.  And with this new Nike Live store going to Cary I think that could be it.

That looks exactly like what that is. A façade Model. Cool. Looks like this is getting started now. I know they have been gutting the Honey Tulepo building though.

Nike would be huge, as it would definitely be a draw for other retail companies.

Cherry somehow stands up to density but not 60 years of autocentric crap. They basically got gutted in the early part of this decade and try to exert their opinions to part of the surrounding areas, which I get the attempt to try to preserve their enclave, but their resistance is futile and quite frankly, unwarranted.

I think once we get one major soft goods retailer like Nike or Under Amour, then they will lead the way for others to open up shop in South End.

I’m excited at the direction retail is going for south end, but it’s just a shame uptown doesn’t have much after all this time of trying to bring it back.  I can’t tell you how many out-of-towners I meet that stay uptown when I uber and the first thing they say is wow “it’s quiet uptown” or “there’s nowhere to shop” or “not much to do”.  Then I tell them south end exists.  It shouldn’t have to be this way.
