Legends in 21

This is an enormous project and a great investment and addition to downtown. Adding to the recently reopened Read House, The Moxy and the New Edwin Hotel this hotel will help raise bar for quality accommodations in downtown. It will also help drive demand for experience based retail in downtown, something that is sorely missing in large parts. While not a silver bullet it is another solid step in the right direction.


Dumping Midtown Office Park Office Buildings – Updated

Jimmy White and his partners recently put up eight buildings with over 360,000sf of office onto the market in the Midtown Office Park at the 24/75 interchange. At first glance it looks reasonably priced and leased up but whenever I see this kind of activity it raises eyebrows. I can imagine Jimmy will be funneling his equity into the Alston project for the next couple years. Check in with Andrew Holt at Healy and Company for all the details.


St Elmo Development

This has the potential to be a fairly transformative project for the St Elmo area. With all the residential changes in the area this will be a welcome addition and support the appeal for this area. The addition of the ne Publix on Broad just North will also add to the appeal of this entire area. I would expect other South Broad redevelopment to follow and I will be surprised if the Food City heads for the exit soon:
