  1. It doesn't even include Raleigh Crossings, Union Square, nor the proposed Highwoods development on Hargett St. If all goes as planned Raleigh will be abuzz with development activity this year.
  2. I had been looking for a list of key planned developments in Raleigh and came across this website which summarizes it nicely. There are currently 10+ major developments in the works for this area: https://raltoday.6amcity.com/raleigh-developments-2021/
  3. I like the fact that this design firm is global, with local offices in Raleigh and Charlotte.
  4. Those are all my most favorite cities in the US, with Miami not included. I would not recommend for anyone to attempt to raise a family in them though.
  5. As someone who's lived in both areas and is very familiar with both economies and COL, you will definitely get more bang for your buck in the Triangle. When not in CA I miss the wealth of things to do, the food, skiing in Tahoe, and the overall culture, but over the years Raleigh has improved in many areas. 10-15 years ago I could not imagine spending most of my time in Raleigh and would go back to CA at the first opportunity. Now i'm quite happy being in Raleigh most of the time. I think that the millenial energy and progressive growth of Raleigh has made it more exciting to me. The influx of great people has turned this once sleepy southern town on it's head. The vibe here is really incredible compared to many other cities that I visit and I can see why so many people want to move here.
  6. I would love to see a rendering that shows how this tower will integrate with the surrounding area.
  7. This came out of nowhere. First time i've heard of this new tower. Sad to see the former home of Moonlight Pizza go. https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2021/01/20/raleigh-council-bloc83-heritage-properties-rezone.html?cx_testId=40&cx_testVariant=cx_45&cx_artPos=0#cxrecs_s
  8. The biggest issue, IMO, is the proximity to the interstate. Developments along I-95 and I-85 tend to get a lot of not so desirable visitors heading north from FL and GA up to the northeast (i.e. drug runners, illegals, etc.). Only time will tell how this development will eventually turn out. I'll remain neutral for now.
  9. I'll reserve my enthusiasm for this project until after it has been operational for a year or two. That area is a bit too sketchy to have something too upscale. I agree with you and my thoughts exactly.
  10. People who think like that should move to Perquimans County. Warren County is too close to the Triangle.
  11. $1.1M + for these townhomes near Cameron Village. Just think, 10 years ago these townhomes would have been valued at about half the current prices. https://www.cameroncrest.com/luxury-townhomes-for-sale-in-raleigh-nc?gclid=Cj0KCQiA0fr_BRDaARIsAABw4EubtPaHgZfN5ep7Z6RYy3l9rdkBfnFCw2dnL2yLxvSthqPFdJu7nQoaAuEVEALw_wcB
  12. They must have thought about and devised plans for optimal traffic flow early in the design process. The Wake Forest Rd/I-440 corridor is already a nightmare just about any time of day, and once this comes online, it will be unbearable. It will be interesting to see how this all manifests. If I'm correct, they had once considered a pedestrian bridge between the east and west sides, and at one point there was even talk of some sort of elevated transit system. I'm not sure how serious those ideas were.
  13. I drove by the site the other day. The trees have almost cleared and I believe that construction is scheduled to start in 1Q or 2Q. I just wonder how access to this massive development will work. Currently the only access is St. Albans Dr., which is not exactly a major thoroughfare.
  14. Best money shot that i've seen lately.
