    North Hills / Midtown area developments

    I think there's only so much he can do as he doesn't exactly own Six Forks Road. At one point there was talk of a tunnel between the two North Hills under Six Forks and I even think I remember seeing it on a plan somewhere. No idea what happened.
  2. I know it won't happen, but there's a part of me that really really hopes that cute little retail strip remains standing.

    Cameron Village Developments

    Those are kind of cute. Looks like "mostly" brick on the outside.
  4. Wait what? Those are the same buildings? How is this allowed? The updated ones look cookie cutter crap.

  6. I really despise the sea of parking right at the entrance there. I wish they'd pulled the Wegmans closer to the street and built a deck behind it that was faces with apartments/hotel/retail.

    That's truly a shame. That gas station is awesome. Character being paved over. It's like a weird repeat of when neighborhoods/houses got paved over for parking lots for state government.
  8. They'd be smart to. Kane knows how to execute and deliver on projects for what it's worth.
  9. I mean that's cool and all but I feel like this is murdering another NCSU staple which is East Village. Pour one out for my college years. Sadlacks is long gone and now East Village. Guess that just leaves Mitchs and Players Retreat.
  10. Random, but it'd be nice if something interesting could happen to that odd triangular island of grass at West and Peace now. If anything, bury that cluster-f of powerlines and poles.

    To be fair though, the Plensa idea had a lot of flaws. I remember going to a talk given by some downtown Raleigh planners which changed my perspective on it a few years back. On the surface the Plensa stuff was all nice and shiny and cool. Digging into it though there were apparently too many problems which made it not cost effective.
  12. 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
  14. Needs a dash more blah.
