  1. All the links at the top of their site go to a web form asking for more information, lol.

    I might be mistaken here, but I'm pretty sure that line through Carpenter is CSX owned. They even show it on their system map: Source: https://www.csx.com/index.cfm/customers/maps/csx-system-map/ Unrelated, I also remember reading a while back that CSX is willing to entertain leaving the downtown Apex area should the right offer come along from the town (read as: $$$$$$$$$$$). CSX has apparently already moved a lot of their switching operations out of town anyways. Source: http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/community/southwest-wake-news/article27921826.html
  3. Needs a dash more blah.
  4. They're trying, albeit at a snails pace: https://www.wral.com/plan-underway-to-reduce-traffic-around-crabtree-valley-mall-/17521765/

    Raleigh Union Station

    You don't, there's a tunnel between the station and the platform(s).

    Raleigh Union Station

    Nice and modern. I wonder what those pylon looking things are in the top-center-ish of the picture are?
  7. Heh wow... that takes out two houses on Garden Place. Although I will admit neither of them are really of any historical/architectural significance. It' s a decent sized development.

    Broadstone KKD Portfolio LLC (what a name -- rolls right off the toungue, lol) has purchased the Krispy Kreme property in downtown Raleigh. http://www.newsobserver.com/news/business/article208325979.html

    Kane's third downtown project

    Yeah you've really got to give the man credit. He has a vision and when he latches onto an idea he just pushes hard to get what he wants done. It's very admirable and while yes, there are some negatives -- he really spurred changes in this area for helping bridge the suburban/urban divide. He's driving a lot of development and change downtown as well now. He also got the "forever stuck" Valentine Commons project going.
  10. Well... that was unexpected. Interesting.
  11. It would be nice if they left that neighborhood alone. Between that small pocket neighborhood and the ever shrinking shell of the Stanhope Ave neighborhood, soon there won't be any homes left on that side of Hillsborough Street in that area.
  12. Ha interesting. So that's why the Smoker Friendly closed there. Guess they got a good offer to sell.

    Kane's Downtown Mixed Use Project

    A relative of mine moved into an apartment in a multi-block complex like that in Charlotte. You would walk out of their apartment, turn a corner down a hallway and the rest of the building was essentially a construction zone with basically no interior walls complete yet. Utterly crazy to be living next to that in the same building just a few units away, but hey, it works indeed.
