  1. The brisk pace of warehouse building projects in and around Graham appears to be continuing into 2023, as construction of one spec warehouse is underway, while another proposed warehouse of up to 788,550-square feet is also being marketed as a build-to-suit property for a warehouse/logistics company or tenant. The larger of the two latest projects, for the proposed warehouse that could span up to 788,550 square feet, is currently being marketed through the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC), which works with the governor’s office and N.C. Department of Commerce to lure new companies to set up operations in the state. https://alamancenews.com/latest-warehouse-project-is-across-kimrey-road-from-industrial-park/
  2. Phoenix heat is other worldly, not only in intensity but calendar duration. 115 degrees of dry heat is still a hellscape
  3. Haw River’s town council has approved annexation and rezoning for a nearly 200-acre residential development that Haw River officials say could be one of the largest residential projects in the town’s history. Plans described to the town council indicate plans for 34 single-family homes, 136 townhouses, and 360 apartments, for total of 530 single-family and multifamily units. https://alamancenews.com/haw-river-oks-annexation-for-large-residential-project/
  4. Hopefully the black migration to North Carolina will finally tip the political scales of state politics in the upcoming decade
  5. West Wilson remains hot. Two large housing development projects are in the works in the area, with 1158 Place beside Heritage Corner and another 300-unit complex on the other side of Airport Boulevard receiving Wilson City Council approval on a rezoning request to change the area to residential mixed use in October.
  6. A new shopping area that would include Academy Sports, Home Goods, Burlington, Michaels and Petco is in the development process, according to documents approved by the city of Wilson’s Technical Review Committee. The TRC approved elevation plans for a standalone Academy Sports + Outdoors and a block that would contain Home Goods, Burlington, Michaels and Petco at Heritage Corner — the development behind Culver’s at the corner of Airport Boulevard and Raleigh Road Parkway. https://restorationnewsmedia.com/articles/wilsontimes/new-stores-in-development-stage-for-heritage-center/?newsletter=1
  7. Wait. Trees are in bloom there? In January?!?!
  8. Any survey that doesn’t have metro DC in the top 4 of bad traffic and commutes is prima facie sus.
  9. They still have places with “Plantation” in the name? Johnston County. SMH
  10. New year, same @Canes. A five-game Sunday saw Carolina extend its franchise-record win and point streaks to 11 and 17 games, respectively.
  11. The political backlash to recent events in Portland and Oregon has been so great the state almost elected a very conservative to governor.
  12. I don’t know if it’s had any impact on population, but the continuous unrest in Portland has definitely made some view the city as less desirable.
  13. Great. Governor Hogan was a jerk for canceling this while simultaneously allowing the Purple Line in PG and Montgomery Counties to proceed. Next, I would like to see the DC and Baltimore metros connected via BWI.
  14. Of course, the accuracy and longterm value of the 2021 estimates is hotly debated because of the impact of the pandemic on migration patterns.
  15. I think Hushpuppy was referring to the 2021 US Census Bureau estimates, which estimated Mecklenburg County grew a modest .6% from 2020 to 2021, significantly below the state growth rate of 1%. Durham County’s once redhot growth declined during the period, if the estimates are accurate. https://amp.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/development/article259721140.html
  16. When is construction scheduled to begin on the Wadesboro Bypass? It should be a bypass from Marshville to the Pee Dee River.
  17. Lots of potential land for development
  18. The popular gas station and convenience store chain Wawa is coming to Wilson, according to a site plan for a Ward Boulevard location that the city’s Land Development Department has approved, land development manager Janet Holland confirmed to the Wilson Times on Monday. Wawa’s site plan for the corner of Ward Boulevard and Nash Street indicates contractors will demolish the former Rite Aid pharmacy building that now sits vacant at the junction, with gas pumps and a store set to take its place. The Wawa location will be accessible from entrances on Ward Boulevard, Nash Street and Forest Hills Drive, according to planning documents. https://restorationnewsmedia.com/articles/local-news/wawa-store-coming-to-wilson/?newsletter=1
  19. Charlotte, build one of these! https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZTRH53dKt/
  20. Residential development planned for Swepsonville https://www.bizjournals.com/triad/news/2022/10/14/horont-plans-single-family-homes-alamance-county.html
  21. The 2021 US Census estimate for Granville County noted that the county is experiencing a population boom. As with most of the country and state, people are moving to exurbs to find cheaper housing post-pandemic.
