    Mystery Development?

    So depending on how this plays out, this could be fairly deliberate on Meredith's part to get the NCDOT to back off. In the below alternative map, the big sideways T building at the bottom-middle (right of "MEREDITH COLLEGE" ) is Weatherspoon. If they plan to stick the new building in that field space between it and 440, things could get interesting between the DOT and Meredith. The TBJ article says it'll be in the northwest of campus, but that could be in a few places. Could also go to the right of that parking lot next to Weatherspoon or further up where that big "C" is, dunno.

    From: https://www.newsobserver.com/news/business/article228029674.html Alright smart people, where are those 40 acres? Time to bust out IMAPS.

    Meh. All the media hype and soul-crushing string-alongs by the Army, Amazon, and Apple have left me not caring about crap like this anymore. They can go plop down in Canada for all I care at this point.
  4. It kind of does annoy me slightly. Given how utterly terrible Apex's transportation and greenway network currently is.
  5. Looks like they may resort to tunneling the Durham-Orange light rail thru the ATC corridor: https://www.wral.com/tunnel-could-be-solution-to-move-durham-orange-light-rail-project-forward/18065756/ I have to say that I'm impressed at how dedicated everyone is to this project. They are going as far as throwing it underground in this one area to keep things moving. Hope it keeps up with the momentum as we head toward a 2020 groundbreaking with this. #fingerscrossed

    I understand not wanting to sell because of potentially not finding an equivalent nearby, but man would I hate to be that 1 person that didn't sell. You'll literally have 50 other people breathing down your neck every time you set foot outside your door. No thanks.

    Wow, that's super awesome.

    North Hills / Midtown area developments

    While I agree to an extent, I don't really have the same gripes with Hillsborough Street. Every street can't be auto-centric and Hillsborough really should cater more toward pedestrians. It's unfortunate that upgrades to infrastructure can't all happen at once, but I'd rather them do it when they can than not at all. If anything I feel like Hillsborough Street is rather painless now to get through. I used to swear a lot more traveling through there before the rework.

    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.
  10. I know it won't happen, but there's a part of me that really really hopes that cute little retail strip remains standing.

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

    Five Points in Raleigh

  14. 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.

    One Glenwood

    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.
