Per Charlotte Five a 150 room Tapestry hotel by Hilton is coming to Midtown. Corner of Berkeley Ave and Pearl Park way. Will include rooftop bar and retail 

Where exactly is this thing going to be? Are they extending Berkeley to Pearl Park way as part of the redevelopment? The Agenda article says it's going to be by Trader Joe's at PPW and Kenilworth.

the new hotel is going on the site of the old Realtors Association building and between the new Canopy Real estate building and the 2 medical office buildings.  

One thing many may not know is how big  Canopy the old Carolina MLS is now. They operate the MLS for greater Charlotte region deep into SC now with the Piedmont MLS merger, the Unifour region Caldwell, Catawba, Burke counties,  Asheville Hendersonville area and now a merger is proposed with Haywood County which is where Waynesville is.  Just as small banks are merging to pay for technology same goes for the smaller Multiple Listing services.   They are rolling up small ones several times  a year.

^^^ now we have a name and real Midtown.  that is an impressive project when put all together.  

Meh, I'm a little underwhelmed by the uses, and how its all woven together. Doesn't feel pedestrian oriented at all.

Midtown really needs some major development. Like a condo or huge office building. 

Maybe the small parcel next to trader joes that was bought recently?  https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2019/09/09/jpmorgan-buys-land-atmetropolitan-development-in.html

There was also talk of a large office on the other side of Kings Dr from the Trader Joes. Although that seems dead... https://images2.loopnet.com/d2/jfiTkgiBmY2PTgH5eDypzb8pVDgBUFQsKf2tv1tJ_Mw/document.pdf     https://www.officespace.com/nc/charlotte/2084328-355-s-kings-dr

traffic is so bad at midtown. I hate going over there

Aside from rush hour or the Trader Joe's garage, it's not too bad. Better than South Blvd or P-M anyway.

I always say that parcel should be a huge hotel, and get rid of that damn wendys and replace it with some mixed use building.

Can’t remember if this was mentioned earlier but according to Charlotte Agenda, the West Elm Store is closing the Met location.  Rumors were that they’d have both south end and that one but apparently that’s not the case
