Center City Development Maps

411 posts in this topic

Since I am loosing track of the apartment projects announced in the South corridor I put together a map showing the locations of announcements I could find and any assoicated information like the number of units. I also added the uptown, Seigle Point and midtown projects which I knew about. I included the Strawn project not because it looks eminent, but I felt like it was important.

The map is available here to edit: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zVkgech8oPvQ.kAkwm8EIn_7Y

 

 

It is very likely that 1) I missed some projects and 2) I messed up some project boundaries (I did not check Polaris for parcel ownership). I am happy to make any corrections requested.

I see that you added Lofts at Seigle Point.

I just bought a place in Seigle Point so I was wondering how long it'd be before they developed the front two lots by the road. Any word on how many of those will be condo's vs apartments? The construction journal says it will be both, but doesn't specify quantity.

Thanks for the map, there is more going on than I thought.

The source I had for Seigle Point did not provide a start date or further details, it just listed it as "proposed"

There's the apartments going in on 7th in Elizabeth, Mercury NoDa, Mosaic Village in Seversville and then a 6 or so story apartment complex going in on Morehead I think near Berkeley.

Thanks. Updated (I think).

Also added the still fuzzy Mecklenburg Mills project in NoDa.

Very helpful; thanks. I think the Fountains is on the opposite side of McDowell from the County parking lot.

They are also building out a number of new (3 story?) town homes on West 6th btwn Sycamore and Irwin in Gateway City area right by Rays Splash Planet. On ther map you can see the rectangular area pretty clearly.

Most of the framed are completed. Which raises the question of the impact of the proposed towers over there (I think the land abuts it though instead of being on it)

P.S. Great map and I'm surprised at how much is going on too!

If you are adding streetcar and townhome development. The Double Oaks Redevelopment is going full force with the sales center now open.

Oh and proposed apartments at Morehead and Millerton behind Charlotte School of Law (the square area surrounded by trees)

^ Originally I only intended to map the South End apartment projects. I guess it got away from me.

Thanks for the additions.

The streetcar starter project goes all the way to Presby on Trade and Elizabeth. There are so few other projects, you might as well add non-apartment projects, like Bearden Park and Skye Condo-hotel.

Also the Levine "project" is half that size, as the southern part of what you show is part of the greenway.

Thanks. The truncated streetcar was an editing error (now fixed). Not sure I have the revised boundaries of the Levine project correct but I gave it a shot.

There are a couple more things in the pipeline in NoDa:-

-first, the Mercury project extends to the whole containing block (to Mercury, Davidson, Alexander & 36th).

-there is a proposed condo project called Studio 6 on Davidson @ the "creek" across from Faison Ave.

-there is a proposed 4 story condo project on 35th & Yadkin corner in rezoning right now

-there is a proposed 4 story condo project on Davidson just past Herrin (next to existing Renaissance)

^ Thanks, I thought I had missed a good bit in NoDa.

I also thought I heard about a smallish project beside the tracks at 36th (there were issues with the height of the building and the SEHSR / BLE extension construction if memory serves)

Awesome map! Just some minor tweaks on project limits:

-Streetcar starter project turns on Hawthorne Ln, ending at E 5th St

-Sky/Hyatt is between 3rd & 4th

-Silos is on both sides of Poindexter Dr at Griffith St

-Southline goes up to Spectrum on Hawkins St

-Centro does not reach Hawkins St, but stops mid-block off Camden Rd, as an "L" behind Price's

-Morehead is beside the dead rezoning of Planet Five, closer to Kenilworth Ave than Harding Pl

-Levine includes the sales center on Metropolitan Ave at Kings Dr

-JBL (fka Winter Elizabeth) stops at Bascom Ext to Cameron Ave

-Mercury NoDa wraps around the existing Neighborhood Theatre/Boudreaux's buildings

^ thanks. I think I have it all fixed. I had no idea the streetcar was going beyond the existing tracks on Elizabeth -- very glad to hear it will turn the corner. I think I have the boundaries improved, but I am still pretty fuzzy on the Morehead project.

Bearden park is sadly half that size. Only between MLK (2nd) and 3rd, Poplar and Church.

I didn't know southline was soooo huge! thats great! I just wish something would happen with the land on the opposite side of the tracks. What WAS supposed to go there? I cannot remember. I bet you didn't know what a pain in the ass your map was going to become once we all got a hold of it ;0)

Whoa. When did that change? I always thought it was supposed to go up against Mint St. That was the reason why Poplar was supposed to be closed off between MLK and 3rd.

***Mint. You're right. Sorry for the typo.

Not that I know of any projects missing, but this map highlights the dearth of projects going in in Plaza-Midwood. I know there is the new Harris Teeter but is there really nothing else planned?

      Tonights situation couldn't have been more poorly handled by CMPD and Mayor Roberts. My opinions on her leadership have taken a drastic turn. Sad night for my city.

      Thought a thread for bicycle-related infrastructural and program developments seemed appropriate. Post any news related cycling in Richmond. Also, feel free to share any articles that were previously shared in broader threads here on bicycles. 
      Just resharing the article on the bike-share program coming to Richmond because I came across another curious article (see 2nd link) on how Milwaukee's bike-share program teamed up with their Housing Authority in order to ensure accessibility to lower- and low income neighborhoods.

      It has taken forever, but Tallahassee is beginning to tap into its potential of becoming a more thriving densely populated city.  The rapid development of Gaines Street-College Town and a proposed Florida State University Arena District is changing the entertainment landscape of Tallahassee with more developments current under construction and in the works:

      This area is predominantly an industrial, but it does have a number of minority neighborhoods. They are often forgotten in urbanization and development circles, because they are neighborhoods that have generally been lacking in projects outside of the housing authority.
       
      I was not familiar with all of these neighborhood names, but they are defined by the city's neighborhood quality of life study here:
      http://ww.charmeck.org/qol/cwac.htm
       
      Greenville is the most known and stable of the neighborhoods in this area, as it is both the farthest from industrial uses and among the closest to downtown. Lockwood is a name I wasn't familiar with until researching it, but it is directly northeast of 4th Ward between Tryon and Graham.
       
      In 1998, the city got federal approval for a Hope VI project called the Park at Oaklawn
      http://www.crosland.com/apartments/propert...ark_at_oaklawn/
      You can read more about the conversion plan here:
      http://www.cha-nc.org/documents/HOPE%20VI%20Properties.pdf
       
      The only Planning Department plan I see for the area only encompassed most of the neighborhoods I have included in this thread, but it specifically focused on the Statesville Avenue corridor.
      http://ww.charmeck.org/Planning/Land%20Use...ille_Avenue.pdf
       
      The neighborhoods I have listed include large sections of industrial areas, but do include housing areas that have around 10,000 residents. As the area is fragile socially, and is known for its industry, crime and poverty, these areas have generally been bypassed for growth outside of direct public investment in housing. However, we have recently seen Wilmore become a valuable neighborhood and many projects coming to westside neighborhoods, especially Wesley Heights, and Optimist Park and Belmont begin to see regeneration and growth.
       
      Now, on the fringes of uptown, we are starting to see growth due north into the neighborhoods included in this thread. Technical Noah Lazes' Uptown Village and NC Music Factory is within the traditional boundaries of the Greenville Neighborhood, although the interstate has caused that to be generally considered part of uptown lately. We now know that there is a plan to put townhomes on 12th Street just beyond Brookshire Freeway from uptown in a project called City View Terrace. It will be 58 units starting at $300k. While this is technically beginning to pioneer out into these neighborhoods, it is south of the Seaboard Railroad tracks, so it is still the traditional uptown neighborhoods rather than the other neighborhoods beyond that.
