  1. Downtown South announced it will have a new live music venue. Looks very cool. 3,500 person capacity and a rooftop deck. https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2022/09/21/raleigh-downtown-south-concert-venue-kane-realty.html
  2. I know the Seaboard Station redevelopment includes some underground parking. Sadly most of the other projects go with above-ground.
  3. This looks like a great project. Good activation on the ground floor and it is great that they are keeping the Creamery Building. My only complaint is how prominent the parking portion will be.
  4. Fidelity is adding another 1,500 jobs in RTP. This is in addition to previously announced expansions. https://www.wraltechwire.com/2021/09/27/fidelity-investments-adding-additional-1500-jobs-to-north-carolina/
  5. A lot of the current success of the Triangle is due to the farsighted actions of leaders in the 1950's to 1980's. Things like establishing Research Triangle Park and the Biotechnology Center. This area had some real visionaries to distinguish this area from other smallish southern state Capitals. Of course the presence of the universities is a major factor, but they put in place infrastructure that helped build on the universities.
  6. I think the Iron Works is going to be one of the very best spots in Raleigh when it is complete. Jamestown is a legit developer.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I like these midsized modern projects that add density and homeowners Downtown.
  14. 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
  15. Great write-up! Thanks for writing it and posting here!
