Ross was close to a deal to take the Staples space pre-COVID, but I'm assuming that deal is dead. 

Hopefully just on hold. I mean between Trade Joes and Target, there is a lot of potential here.

^ Is that the old Staples space?

West Elm is having major operational issues.  I purchased nearly $4,000 in furniture back in early November, but ended up canceling both after extended shipping delays.  In fact, one piece showed up and was damaged and I had to decline delivery, and a replacement wouldn't have been available until March.  I ended up ordering from CB2 (affiliated with Crate & Barrel), and got two pieces within 7 days, and at the same price.  Crate & Barrel in that space, please, instead of just the one in Southpark.  

Any chance that retailers that might quickly fill the space at Metropolitan are taking their time because they're being pitched new urban-format big-box retail space opportunities at a redesigned and reformed Epicenter?

I agree West Elm is a cluster... canceled several things as well due to numerous delays. 

I don't think Crate & Barrel would be interested. At 15,000 square feet, the location is too small for their desired format.

It is the former BJs/Home Depot space where At Home is going.

Perfect size for a  CB2 store...

The Target building and deck are not owned by the same people who own the Best Buy/Marshalls building.

Northwoods doing a refresh of the shopping center and of course planning a 28 story apartment tower at Metropolitan reports the Agenda. 

https://www.charlotteagenda.com/247209/new-owners-of-midtown-shopping-center-plan-a-major-refresh/

I don’t feel like an exterior refresh will be what helps this center turn the corner. When it first opened and the tenant mix was good we tried to go frequently but parking was so difficult we just stopped going. Now the tenant list is terrible - a real estate office and Smile Direct just don’t make me want  to go - and parking is easy. Does Northwood have enough pull in the market now to draw in good tenants?

There should have been a hotel going where the apartments will be placed. Or maybe where that Wendy’s is. I’ve always felt like Wendy’s was just so not a good fit in that area. So out of place. There should be more foot traffic not car traffic.

That Wendy’s is a mess.   They’ve put up orange cones to block off the entrance to the parking lot so you have to drive around the entire building as if you’re leaving just to access the drive thru or to park, instead of entering once you drive into the shopping center from Met Ave.  It’s like they realized they screwed up the traffic pattern right after it opened and now it just looks like it’s been under construction for years.

That Wendy's has been there before the entire Metropolitan development happened and it was only rebuilt when the development started.  It has been since the Charlottetown Mall was there before it closed.   They own the parking lot and building so I would not think they would sell it out.  It is a high preforming restaurant.  

I know it was there first. I didn’t mean it the other way around. I just felt like none of that midtown area seems to go together. Even for what they have planned.  Yes it is truly a high performance restaurant but it’s weird to me that they purposely rebuilt it with all of that combined to be considered midtown. Two streets back would have been better.

I wouldn't get your hopes up. Tribek has historically been a Walgreens and outparcel developer. This is way out of their league and they're likely just upzoning to be able to sell the parcel for a higher price.

I wonder if this site\rezoning will face the opposition that the other sites faced from the Cherry\Myers Park Neighbors or if this is a done deal since 285' & 299' Tower Heights have already been permitted by Council during previous Rezoning's in Years Past.

I dont think so as it is located further from any residential other than some apartments across the street which are also across the street from Target.  Plus the other direction is CPCC.  

If I was this developer I would get a national partner and maybe do apartments atop some office space.  Hotel I think that is dreaming.  I think they are doing this rezoning to market the site to a joint partner.

Midtown does seem like the next natural place for midrises and highrises. It just hasn't taken off yet for some reason.

Midtown would be great for mid & high rise construction because it has some of the best views of Uptown.  I think the lag has been that developers are more focused on the Transit Corridors but I’m sure that Midtown will come into its own in the next 5/10 years

      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.
