  1. They'd be smart to. Kane knows how to execute and deliver on projects for what it's worth.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  5. 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
  7. Needs a dash more blah.

    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?
  11. 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.
  14. Well... that was unexpected. Interesting.
