  1. Fujifilm Biotechnologies building a $1.5 billion, 725 job manufacturing facility in Holly Springs. https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2021/03/18/fujifilm-diosynth-picks-holly-springs-for-facility.html
  2. Huge announcement from one of the biggest names in technology. I think the Triangle is already on everyone's list of locations to consider, but it makes it easier to sell when you have companies like this making major investments.
  3. Great shots @Firejudyrose Interesting perspective @SydneyCarton I find Southpark to feel more like a district/neighborhood and be more organic than North Hills which is and feels like a development, but I think North Hills is a better experience and more walkable. I think both are fairly nice faux-urban places which add something valuable to their respective cities. And both are far superior to Ballantyne, IMO.
  4. Agreed that this is an exciting project. Raleigh does not have as many historic buildings as many other cities and it is great that these two are getting updated and incorporated into such a quality development. As @KJHburg said, Jamestown is first class. One of the best developers in the country. Ponce City Market is one of my favorite projects of the last decade, so I'm expecting the reality to live up to the renderings. I hope they keep the pedestrian bridge.
  5. Would be intetesting if they included a summary of where in NC those jobs are located. I assume mostly in RTP, but curious about specifics.
  6. The apartments are fine if a bit generic, but i think it is ridiculous that they are tearing down the 90+ year old historic building that houses Goodnights Comedy Club to put this up. Raleigh doesn't have that many cool historical buildings. We should protect our limited inventory. They should be required to preserve what is there.
  7. I like these midsized modern projects that add density and homeowners Downtown.
  8. Yes, it will be a park called Devereux Meadow. Currently in design phase. Will likely be mostly open because it is in a floodplain. Hopefully also trails and a connection to the Greenway. https://raleighnc.gov/projects/devereux-meadow-project
  9. Great write-up! Thanks for writing it and posting here!
  10. Cary has several great projects in the pipeline. This Carolina Yards project which includes the $193M indoor sports complex, Fenton which is already under construction, and the new Downtown Park. Cary has long had a lot of educated, high earning residents, but the built environment has been pretty underwhelming. Hopefully these will give the Town more of a draw.
  11. Slight clarification, the article says it would be the largest "multi-raquet sport complex" in the world, i.e. numerous raquet sports like tennis, pickle ball, panel, etc. Not racquetball the specific game which is played inside. Very exciting project. I've had my eye on this for a while and am glad it is moving forward. It was originally announced as tennis complex and keeps diversifying with more focus on other raquet/paddle sports.
  12. Nothing official yet, but some state owned land in West Raleigh along Blue Ridge Road is being considered for the new headquarters for the NC DHHS. https://abc11.com/realestate/new-dhhs-hq-could-be-another-jewel-in-west-raleigh/6522092/ And it hasn't been discussed in this thread, but the new Bandwidth HQ is going nearby on Edwards Mill. Plus NC Department of Agriculture Science Center and UNC Rex Cancer Center are both currently under construction.
  13. Some earlier posts discussed some of the recent leases done at Parmer RTP such as Duke School of Medicine. Last week it was reported that ParmerRTP sold for a whopping $590 million! The buyer was California based Alexandria Real Estate. Huge investment in the area by a major REIT that already had property here and obviously likes the area's prospects. https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2020/08/25/parmer-rtp-sells-253-acres-in-590-million.html
  14. Very cool project that will essentially expand downtown's footprint a block. I agree that Dominion Realty gets things done in Raleigh, so I am optimistic this project will happen, especially since they have already submitted plans for administrative site review. As shown in the rendering, this will have a huge impact on the skyline. One tower is planned for 239 feet and the other for 278 feet.
  15. I hope these and the other projects go forward with no delays. These are very tough times, especially in the hospitality industry.
