The Tic-Toc diner (or Grille) was ground level in that building with the contemporary home on the upper levels. Walter Fields IV (Quad!) owned the restaurant until  a few years ago. An older couple bought it from him and that did not last.

The dude who owns Midnight Diner ought to jump on that one.

Agreed, because that piece of real estate he's currently is on the selling block.

Can you they at least open this lane on 11st St and remove the barricades along Brevard? This has been under construction for FOUR years and shows no sign of resuming construction.  This is a disgrace.     Why is not at least opened for parking to generate revenue are the rumors of structural problems true???

They still have to finish the cladding on the parking garage so it’s not cleared for occupancy yet. Every square inch around it is currently being designed to accommodate a 12-15 floor apartment building. It’s def not optimal, and frankly don’t know that it’ll ever be resolved.

How much to rent lanes of the street such as that?

I do not have any direct experience with this, but I heard or read years ago that it's based on the tax value of the property.

Is there a homeless camp inside there? If not, why not?

That would add another layer of hip, like LA or Seattle.

The old Hall House Barringer Hotel awaits redevelopment and restoration back into a hotel.  I wish this part of the project would get going soon.

Also some scenes from N Tryon St.  from  yesterday.

I know not the purpose of the poster/mural on the side of Duckworth. I know this:

Strange Fruit
Southern trees bear strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees
Pastoral scene of the gallant south
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop
Songwriters: Lewis Allan / Maurice Pearl / Dwayne P Wiggins

Some work on Tryon st in front of Hearst. Anyone knows what's going on? 

I think that's setup for a temporary art installation part of Charlotte Shout.
