  1. I think NC overall has a good highway network, but maybe it’s because I live in VA now, which seems to have stopped building new freeways and interstates decade ago. However, NC needs a Charlotte to Wilmington freeway, as well as a Raleigh to Outer Banks freeway. I would also like to see US 64 converted to a freeway throughout the Piedmont, as well as US 52 From Salisbury to Wadesboro.
  2. The local incentives will come from Cabarrus County and the city of Concord, and are expected to be approved in the near future. Documents show that Cabarrus County beat out locations in Rock Hill and Fort Mill for the project. Kroger Fulfillment Network LLC was the grantee for the Job Development Investment Grant from the state. Harris Teeter Inc. and Fred Meyer Inc. are listed as affiliated entities on the JDIG summary document. The exact location of the facility was not announced today. The Concord Planning and Zoning Commission approved the rezoning, annexation and a special-use permit for an industrial project under the codename Project Independence earlier this year. Commission documents show that project includes a fulfillment center of around 198,500 square feet for an unnamed company. The site for Project Independence is just over 53 acres at 227 and 233 N.C. Hwy 49 South, which is just south of Concord. https://t.co/0xMdGPn6Xf
  3. But where will it be built in Cabarrus? Kroger Co. plans to build an Ocado-powered automated warehouse in North Carolina to fill online orders, marking the 16th customer fulfillment center (CFC) that the supermarket giant has announced. Plans call for the 200,000-square-foot North Carolina CFC to go into operation within 24 months after ground-breaking on the site, Cincinnati-based Kroger said Wednesday. The company didn’t specify the location of the North Carolina facility but had announced in October that it planned to construct a CFC in the South.

  5. Kroger announced Dec. 8 its plans for a new "high-tech customer fulfillment center" in Cabarrus County that would create nearly 700 jobs. https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2021/12/08/kroger-cabarrus-county-fulfillment-center-jobs.html
  6. Which is why US 64 should become a freeway. I-685 will also help relieve congestion. Edging
  7. ANy word on the aerospace announcement?
  8. https://www.thetimesnews.com/story/business/2021/11/19/new-rezoning-graham-allow-new-homes-and-townhomes-gilbreath-street-city-council-development-housing/8640221002/ https://www.thetimesnews.com/story/news/local/2021/11/30/burlington-food-hall-now-open-former-downtown-co-op-building-restaurants-business-alamance-county/8794400002/
  9. WGHP should stream the announcement live here: https://myfox8.com/on-air/live-streaming/
  10. This is HUGE. This is likely to radically transform Southeast Guilford and Northeast Randolph in a way that is utterly incomprehensible right now. The ancillary industry and development will create waves throughout the region.
  11. I’m ready for this announcement, and the accompanying I-695!
  12. Any word on how the new infrastructure bill might improve chances for quicker Lynx extensions?
  13. NoMA and Union Market are the current eclectic hipster epicenter of the DMV
  14. It’s the most glaring and biggest weakness of the area. The area still thinks oldschool suburban instead of as a major cosmopolitan area. Wake up!
  15. Maybe some infrastructure funds can be used for I-87.
  16. Plans for a 40-home subdivision surrounding the historic Hollycrest estate off Linden Road cleared Pinehurst’s Village Council in the developer’s first presentation on Tuesday. Ken Bass of Bass Design and Development applied to have the project approved on behalf of landowner HEK Management. Plans lay out four new streets from Hollycrest Drive in addition to Keswick Drive, which was installed in the late 1980s and leads to three homes that were built around the same time. Residents from two of those homes, as well as two residents on the edge of the Lake Pinehurst area whose yards border the currently wooded area, spoke during Tuesday’s public hearing on the preliminary plat with concerns about added traffic, stormwater management and whether the new homes will complement or detract from the historic home at the center of the proposed development. https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2021/11/15/pinehurst-hollycrest-subdivision-approved.html?cx_testId=40&cx_testVariant=cx_45&cx_artPos=8#cxrecs_s
  17. Thermo Fisher Scientific made it official late Friday afternoon and provided two new dimensions to the previously-reported news that the company has selected Mebane as a site for a new manufacturing facility, as first reported in The Alamance News earlier this month. As previously reported, Thermo Fisher Scientific is planning to occupy a 375,000-square-foot facility that is now under construction by the development company Al Neyer on the eastern edge of Mebane – across the county line in western Orange County on the southeast corner of Buckhorn and West Ten roads in what is emerging to be what Orange County officials are terming a Buckhorn Industrial Park. The area is also home to a huge, new 1.2 million square foot Medline distribution center which appears to be nearing completion, and Mebane city council members recently approved another nearby project, also being built by Al Neyer, that will bring another almost 1 million square feet of warehouse space to the Buckhorn Road area. The new dimensions are that the company will invest $192.5 million in the endeavor, as well as the employment impact of the selection of the Mebane site. https://alamancenews.com/national-co-thermo-fisher-scientific-makes-it-official-mebane-is-to-be-site-of-192-5m-new-manufacturing-plant-with-150-200-jobs/Yep
  18. Fairfax County’s Mosaic District is a much more impressive example to emulate https://mosaicdistrict.com/
  19. With a green light from the Winston-Salem City Council, the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem is poised to embark on the first phase of a dramatic transformation coming to sections of East Winston and North East Winston. By unanimous vote on Monday, the council approved a site plan amendment for the 4.5-acre site of the former Brown Elementary School in the 1100 block of Highland Avenue, which will become the location of 12 new apartment buildings containing 81 units of mixed-income housing. https://journalnow.com/news/local/ne...home-top-story
