The last six weeks have been pretty hectic for me. I had to prepare to move, close my ChapelWatch Condo, and temporarily relocate to NoDa until my renters move out of 400 North Church Street. Tie that in with a very active market and it is no wonder that this time has passed.
My passion for the urban lifestyle that is downtown Charlotte has not abated, and I am already planning for my return, and as that happens, cranes and other activities continue to make the downtown market an exciting place to be.
The former site of Therapy is being replaced by Jack's New York Deli http://www.jacksnyd.com/ this will be a great addition to the North Tryon corridor of downtown. Staying in the Fourth Ward, the SkyHouse Charlotte Apartments will be going out to bid on June 28th with Babson Cook as the general contractor. This apartment building will be 26 stories and feature 336 apartments. Located on the corner of West Tenth and North Church it will begin the process to change the First and Fourth Wards as the Museum Complex has changed the Third Ward.
Nearing completion is Romare Bearden Park and the BBT Stadium in the Third Ward. I walk through that area every day and the sense of excitement cannot be overlooked. The Childress Klein Apartments on the corner of MLK Jr. Blvd and South Mint Streets has already poured the first floor of what will be a 25 story apartment building.
Real exciting news is the old fire station located next to The VUE Charlotte will become an Ebenezer's Coffee House in 2014 . Follow this link to get the feel of it. The timing is perfect for the opening of the BBT Stadium just 3 blocks away and all the additional activity taking place downtown.
Hope to see you there!
