Down to their third strike Monday night, the Charlotte Knights rallied and won the Charlotte City Council’s approval of a rezoning that will allow signage on the exterior walls of BB&T Ballpark.

Opening of the park is about a year away.

A proposed $6.5 million renovation of a former movie theater into the latest location of a Charlotte-area megachurch and a 210-unit Class-A apartment complex next door could breathe new life into the moribund Kenton Place mixed-use development, the principals behind the separate projects assert.

Commercial Confidential: NorthPointe Executive Park

Commercial Confidential: NorthPointe Executive Park

In terms of demand for office space, Downtown and SouthPark dwarf the North submarket, which paradoxically pays off for NorthPointe Executive Park. Northern Mecklenburg County is home to Northpointe, and John Ball, a senior leasing agent with Charlotte-based Trinity Partners, said, “There’s not as much deal velocity in that submarket” as in Downtown and SouthPark. “Landlords (in the North submarket) have to really get in there and make deals happen because you don’t know when the next deal might come through.”

When Hoss Hinson is managing a construction project in Asheville, he has to conform to a lot more building-code requirements than when he is working in Concord. But if a bill in front of the North Carolina General Assembly becomes law, Hinson, project manager for Monroe-based Godfrey Construction, will be able to work in Asheville and Concord and everywhere in between without worrying about differences in building codes.

Homebuilders warming up their shouts of “Free at last, free at last!” to hail the passage of two bills in the North Carolina General Assembly should stop, call their lawyers and consult their dictionaries first. The bills – House Bill 150 and Senate Bill 139 – aim to curtail local governments’ imposing of non-structural aesthetic building codes on builders of one- and two-family houses. By the wide majority of 98-18, the House passed its version this week, and the nearly identical Senate bill appears poised for equally easy passage.

Yoga enthusiasts in Cotswold soon will have more space to practice their poses, as Y2 Yoga is stretching into the second-floor space in the building it occupies in Cotswold Village Shops. Construction started about two weeks ago on the $1.24 million studio expansion, according to Vinoy Reid of VR King Construction, the general contractor on the project. On the building’s second floor, demolition is under way to make room for Y2’s expansion, which is adjacent to space the studio already occupies on that floor. Y2 also has space on the ground floor.
