    Future Skyline Rendering

    Whoa, did you model every single proposed building on the Moxy Hotel?

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    "Legacy Union East Condominium" I thought this was an office tower?

    Triangle Economic News

    Raleigh is trying to lure two mystery projects to the city, and plans to discuss possible incentives in January: https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2018/11/16/amid-amazon-loss-raleigh-goes-after-2-mystery.html
  4. What did happen to Ely? I noticed he was writing about politics now, and someone else was writing about development.

    Hillsborough Street - NCSU Area developments

    Wait, that's the same development? Good grief . . . what a letdown. That kind of bait-and-switch tactic is just not acceptable.

    2035 Triangle Regional Transit Vision Plan

    Durham approves a plan to build 437 apartments in downtown, 277 of which will be affordable. The apartments will be located on two sites near the planned Dillard St. light rail station, one on the 300 block of E. Main St. and the other on the 500 block (both are county-owned). https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article221618515.html Definitely a positive for Durham and the light rail. Including more housing, particularly with affordable units, along the route will be critical to its success.

    Hillsborough Street - NCSU Area developments

    Honestly, that second building isn't so bad. But the first? Bleh . . .

    FNB Tower 401 S Graham St

    They're waiting for Julius Peppers to retire so that the Panthers mural can be removed, clearing the way for construction.

    UP Fantasy Football League?

    Shoot, I really should have started Ben Roethlisberger last night. But I thought the Panther's defense was better than that, so I didn't. As they say, hindsight's always 50/50.

    Quite the tangle of cranes there! I like it!

    2035 Triangle Regional Transit Vision Plan

    GoTriangle has revised their DOLRT plans slightly based upon public and FTA feedback, and will be hosting three meetings to accept further comment, as well as accepting online comments. The Herald-Sun has a good summary and update of the project: https://www.heraldsun.com/news/local/article220971230.html
  12. What does that mean for Publix? It would be a shame to lose them in the new development.

    North Hills / Midtown area developments

    On a trip to Trader Joe's, I saw that construction is underway at Midtown East, the site of the Wegmans shopping centre. It's still a long way from completion, though, and the only major progress that could be seen was the parking deck. EDIT: Also, does anyone know what is going on with Hodges Road where it ends in the Hanna Imports parking lot? The road is closed after entering the lot, and it looks like a trail has been cleared behind it, perhaps for a road extension. I don't see anything about it on the City's website.

    North Hills / Midtown area developments

    I believe the Walter is only hotel and residential, and I was under the impression that it was starting construction separately from the office tower. But I might be wrong. Can anyone clarify this?
  15. NCDOT has opened a brief survey where citizens can give their opinion on transportation priorities across the state, and what the most pressing needs will be in the future. They are currently seeking public input in two ways: A brief survey, and an interactive map where citizens can pin comments about specific needs in their area. Both are part of the NC Moves 2050 Plan which will help the DOT to identify what they should focus on over the next three decades. Please go share your thoughts!
