Has retail been developing as well? Is the area a destination for locals (other than sport and work)?

Its working on it, I try to go up as much as possible. The EpiCenter should give me a new and better excuse, Movie theaters bowling allies etc. Im excited for it. With trumps hopeful arrival we will get a lot of high end stuff to draw partially away from suburban hell southpark mall which contains all of charlottes high end retail and there is A LOT of high end retail in southpark mall. Fanciest Mall ive ever been to bar none

I wish southpark was demolished and all of those stores were put in downtown. But we know that wont happen anytime soon. O well at least there are some good places to shop in south end, like niche and american apparel. They're not high end but i like them.

The vue is starting construction.

Since they have detailed the lower wing of the building in a sort of slick European fashion with graphic displays and transparent glass it makes perfect sense for them to do that... it all comes full-circle.

A few more things:

I don't think there were any renderings posted of the new Bank of America tower and Ritz-Carlton hotel that are under construction:

http://www.pbase.com/bz3rk/image/93985955.jpg

http://www.pbase.com/bz3rk/image/93985947.jpg

http://www.pbase.com/bz3rk/image/93985948.jpg

http://www.pbase.com/bz3rk/image/93985959.jpg

Here is a rendering of the new AAA Baseball stadium uptown:

http://www.pbase.com/bz3rk/image/93985964.jpg

This shows the locations of the new Wachovia tower, and the plan for the 3rd Ward Park and baseball stadium, along with the multimodal station which will be the terminus of the north commuter (heavy rail) line and I believe will also serve the proposed streetcar lines.

http://www.pbase.com/bz3rk/image/93985963.jpg

And while I'm mentioning transit, here is a map of the transit plan. The dark blue line in currently in service. The next two lines to go into service will be the extention of the blue line northeast (2013) and the north commuter line (purple) in 2012. It is still unclear how far north it will go, as there is some debate by Mooresville/other about funding stations.

And finally, a few construction webcams:

210 Trade/Epicenter/Aloft Hotel (can also see Ritz-Carlton and BofA site:

Royal Court (which gives a good view of part of uptown. You can see Nascar, Wachovia, and Catalyst)

KevinFromTexas Mar 12, 2008 4:43 AM

Are there any renderings or construction pictures of that new 764 footer?

skeeterific53 Mar 27, 2008 7:12 PM

Here is an older rendering, its from the drawing set. Sorry about the quality, it is a little grainy.

skeeterific53 Mar 27, 2008 7:19 PM

Pictures from January. A little old, but you can see the progess. The hole they dug was 20 Stories into the ground.

BTW, Wachovia 1st Street Tower. The condos have not been started yet. They will be placed on top of the new Mint Museum building going up.

The last one is the entrance to the underground parking garage under the building.

skeeterific53 Mar 27, 2008 7:20 PM

Sorry for the huge size.
