University City could get a major new entertainment district, with bowling, bars, movies

Quote:
Priester said they’re talking to interested tenants, and the entertainment district could include:

▪ A nine-screen movie theater with a full bar, restaurant and brewery.

▪ Other restaurants, especially those catering to corporate entertaining and daytime use. The focus won’t be entirely on nightlife, Priester said.

▪ A rooftop bar on top of the existing industrial building, with views of the Charlotte skyline.

▪ A hotel.

▪ A bowling alley.

▪ An outdoor golf venue, such as a driving range.

Charlotte City Council will consider the rezoning request and vote on it over the next several months.

Construction is finally moving forward on a long-awaited rooftop bar next to the ballpark

Quote:
The little white building at the corner of South Graham Street and West MLK Jr. Boulevard has been quiet since the project was announced back in January, and its spring 2017 opening date has already come and gone. But all hope is not lost.

Kevan Smith, Principal at SEC General Contractors, confirmed work is underway at the property at 400 S. Graham Street. He cited hurdles in engineering and permitting as reasons for the temporary delay but says the project is moving along.

Electrical, plumbing and mechanical permits were issued on May 11 for a building upfit that totals $557,500, and inspections followed in late June.

Going to have a great view!

Boston developer behind major Dilworth project plans to expand in Charlotte

Quote:
The Fallon Company has acquired a 13-story office building near uptown Charlotte, a site that will serve as the Boston real estate developer’s Southeast regional headquarters.

The 184,144 square foot, multi-tenant building is at 301 South McDowell St.

In a statement Thursday, the firm cited the building’s prominent location – between uptown and midtown, and close to Interstate 277 – as the reason it opted to buy the McDowell building. The firm said the city’s booming economy is the reason it plans to expand its presence in Charlotte.

Want a say in where things get built? Come to this meeting and learn more

Quote:
Charlotte is in the beginning stages of rewriting the rules that govern development in the city, and a meeting scheduled for next Thursday offers a chance for residents to learn more about the process.

Called the Unified Development Ordinance, the new rule book will change what could be built where, how land is divided for new subdivisions and what rules would govern aspects of new developments such as signage and building design. The new ordinance is at least a few years from being complete, with a phase-in possible sometime in 2019 or 2020.

The Ballantyne Breakfast Club is planning to meet Thursday, July 13, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ballanytne Hotel for an update on the project. Members of the Charlotte Planning Department will be on hand to provide an overview of the process and answer questions about the new ordinance.

Two recent articles in the Charlotte Observer. Can't read without a subscription. But apparently, there are plans for a subway and also a spectacular renovation of TWC Center.

I just read the one about the Subway. It's saying they are now in the planning stages and studying how to connect the silver line into uptown. They want to build a underground tunnel for all the light rail future lines to connect at like other major cities. It would be 1 to 2 miles underground tunnel connecting uptown and existing rail service and future rail lines. They interviewed a few consultants .

The second Article is comparing Spectrum Center to Phillips Arena in Atlanta about there new 192 million dollars renovations is about to take place. It's questioning if Chalotte will try to make a run to beef up more renovations to our Arena which is scheduled for a second phase of renovations in 2019. The difference is our Arena is more newer than Atlanta is.

Developer buys another South End property for $7.25M as part of plan to transform area

Are they planning to buy the whole corridor...

Quote:
A Charlotte-based developer that’s been buying up properties at a breakneck pace has made another big purchase in South End, this time on West Tremont Avenue, real estate records show.

Asana Partners added 307 West Tremont to its holdings, paying $7.25 million for the industrial building in a deal that closed June 26. The 3.4-acre site is mostly occupied by parking, warehouse space and loading docks for the low-slung industrial building on the site.

The site is next to a major new apartment development planned by Pollack Shores, an Atlanta-based developer that’s building 350 apartments on the site. Construction on that project is underway, and Pollack Shores had planned to develop the second portion of the site – now owned by Asana Partners – in the future.

One of Charlotte’s best-known shopping centers could be getting a major overhaul

Quote:
Charlotte developer Lincoln Harris has filed a rezoning plan that would allow more shops, restaurants and other development at Phillips Place, the city’s first mixed-use project.

When work started on Phillips Place in the early 1990s, the city didn’t have a zoning category to cover developments that combine retail, residences, office space, movie theaters and hotel rooms on the same site. Called mixed-use development, it’s since become common and has come to dominate much of the real estate market.

The rezoning plan from Lincoln Harris would apply to 15.1 acres just south of Fairview Road, covering much of the commercial area at Phillips Place. The “revitalization” of the shopping center, as the plan puts it, would allow for denser development, more shops and restaurants, along parking decks with a smaller footprint to replace much of the surface parking at the shopping center.

Phillips Place currently has about 80,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, excluding the hotel and movie theater, with upscale tenants such as Restoration Hardware, Brooks Brothers and Orvis. The plan proposed by Lincoln Harris would allow up to 100,000 square feet of additional commercial space, more than doubling the amount at Phillips Place.

Historic uptown building sold for millions to new developer

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/new...161931608.html

Quote:
A nondescript building with a colorful past on Stonewall Street has been sold to a Charlotte-based developer for $6.4 million, real estate records show.

Asana Partners bought the half-acre property at Stonewall at College streets in a deal that closed Monday. The three-story, gray building is currently occupied by the James McElroy & Diehl law firm.

Asana managing partner Sam Judd said the firm is still exploring uses for the building, but it’s expected to include a retail component. Charlotte-based Crescent Communities has long been planning to develop Tryon Place, a mixed-use project anchored by an office tower, on the rest of the block between South Tryon and College streets.

Asana has been on a buying spree since it was founded in 2015 by three former executives from shopping center owner and developer Edens. The new firm has spent almost $85 million acquiring prominent properties in South End and Elizabeth, including the Design Center of the Carolinas, the former Phat Burrito building and the former Southend Interiors building. The company plans to renovate the buildings and lease them to shops, restaurants and creative office tenants.

The building dates to 1902, though it was built in multilple stages and subsequent owners added more floors, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission.
Quote:
According to the commission, Charles Black advertised his livery stable with daily notices in the Charlotte News throughout 1905, pointing to an earlier age when horses dominated uptown: “WANT A DRAY? I have all kinds of wagons for doing all kinds of light or heavy drayage and give careful personal attention to all orders. I make a specialty of moving and packing household goods. Phone 105, C. A. Black, Corner Stonewall and College, Streets and Southern Railway.”

Officially called the Query-Spivey-McGee Building, the site has since served as stables, several seed and feed stores (Charlotte Feed and Gin, Scott Feed Company), an auto repair shop, a mattress and upholstery company and a gardening supply company. Query Spivey McGee operated as a feed, seed and gardening store in the location through the mid-1980s, even as uptown grew up into an ever-larger collection of skyscrapers around the low-slung building.

The building was then converted to office uses.

“Better converted into an office building than razed, but how do you preserve that gloriously evocative smell of feed and seed?” Observer columnist Lew Powell lamented in 1985, after the shop’s closure.
