I agree that lightning sets Charlotte apart and our buildings are so much newer than most cities including some of our peers.  and remember we are Char-LIT

Looks like The Habit Burger closed recently. It’s sad to lose a food option over here that was not in the cluster that is the Met Midtown complex.

Me too! Can't imagine much could change physically though?  Do we know what the 'nearby piece of land' they bought is?

Look at google maps on at the round-about

And we get that diminutive thing from them on former Polk site at Gateway. Out of spite since they have to go back for the rezoning lop this thing to 13 floor also.

I am still very spiteful about that, but at least Midtown will finally be getting a high-rise. That office building that is supposed to be built nearby I don't think will get off the ground...

Northwood Ravin files to build a 28-story apartment building across from Trader Joe's:

Like I said in the other thread, NWR likes to have 2-3 projects going on at once, in each city the have a presence. At least that was their MO when my last company was working with them, Since they finished up Stonewall and are finishing W. Trade, their only major project is Ballantyne. I expect they are going to announce maybe one more project in the area over the next year, unless they get Scaleybark started

iirc, there was a hotel proposed at this site back in the day too (might have already been mentioned).  Metropolitan has some pretty big anchor retail spots to fill too post covid (Vivace, Hickory Tavern, West Elm).  The At Home announcement was a little anticlimactic for me but should do decent there.  I always thought a Bed Bath & beyond would KILL IT at the old Staples location.  There's not a centrally located one between South Charlotte (485 area) and Concord Mills (which is closing).  Plus they usually always group it around similar shopping destinations (ie best buy, target, marshalls).  Hope the new tower is north of 15 floors.

says 25-28 stories tall.  This will help the retail and At Home might attract other non apparel retailers.  I think a HomeGoods would kill it there given the affluence lack of nearby stores and just popularity.  Plus they own Marshalls anyway.

At Home and HomeGoods really overlap though right? Now a TJ Maxx would be nice.

they do but Homegoods has a fanatic following and inner Charlotte is a void for them in a metro market that has 7 stores.   They sometimes do combo stores but I think this wealthy inner city location can handle a Homegoods as At Home will draw them into the area.

Any thoughts on what a tower this size would do to traffic on Kings as well as to the already bad parking situation at Metropolitan?

A residential building shouldn't do much, especially in a walkable area.

Seeing at they can go up to 285' in height due to the rezoning (I think back in 2014) - I would be surprised if they didn't construct a Podium Style building.  Not sure if there is enough parking at the existing Metropolitan Deck.

West Elm closes tomorrow.

I wonder what could fill that vacancy. They still haven't filled the old Staples space on the third floor either.

Don’t forget vivace, Hickory tavern, La Paz, and the Cherry Berry spot are all still empty. This is really bad

      Spectrum | Emery Inc. has offered specifics and has released an image for its 18th & Chet office building planned for Music Row. The 10-story building, to anchor the northeast corner of 18th Avenue South and Chet Atkins Place, will span about 130,000 square feet, with Nashville-based Earl Swensson Associates to serve as architect.
      Spectrum | Emery has the multi-parcel property under contract and hopes to close on the purchase by August’s end. David Wells, Spectrum | Emery vice president, told NBJ the company expects to ask about $38 per square foot.
