Metropolitan, Midtown Redevelopment

Recommended Posts

I think it would take very little to pull in the massive employee population of Atrium. The Elizabeth Ave businesses are packed daily from Novant folks. Unless you work on the East Blvd side of the Atrium campus, there are no real walkable options.

How do you figure that? Over 1,000 people will soon live directly across Kenilworth from this building. Not trying to be argumentative, but numbers are numbers.

I just think this one location is a little isolated and inaccessible compared to the other options. I said the residents that live above this place would frequent it but not much else unfortunately. If you're going to walk somewhere and it is equidistant to walk to the Metropolitan or here (Pappas development), people would go to the developed center with plenty of options. Maybe I'm too cynical of the general population but anything over a 15 minute walk and I think people will just drive somewhere instead. 

For what it's worth, I used to live a few blocks from here and would have loved another option so I'm not rooting against this place by any means. I just will have to see what turns up.

This actually has quite a few spots for parking on the inside.  It has a loading bay also. They would just have to educate people like at the property at Kenilworth and East blvd.

I live nearby and run multiple times a week. My route takes me up Morehead and I run past that intersection and stop to cross at that exact corner. In the last 20 times I've run past that intersection, I've never seen a pedestrian other than people running. People simply do not walk right here. Maybe more apartments may change this, but I agree with your assessment purely based on my experience living here. I also wouldn't want to sit below grade at that intersection because I give it a couple years before a car accident goes barreling through the windows. That intersection is high volume, high speed, and very congested. 1315 east for example has had a couple different wrecks go through the corner entrance.
