The Carlyle, an 82-acre, 16-square-block officeapartment park, was developed on the former railyards of the Southern Railway Company by the Oliver Carr Company and Norfolk Southern Corporation. The neotraditional design makes references to English residential squares and baroque planning, for example, in the two pretentious lions marking the entrance on Duke Street.
