  1. Boy, did they get the Mint St. frontage of Legacy Union wrong!
  2. Yeah, the Metropolitan is the reddish-brown and gray apartment complex to the right of the Link.
  3. Supposedly they're building the first phase, which includes an office tower, on spec starting this fall.
  4. Who would get into a light war with the building occupied by the power company? That's just asking for trouble.
  5. Apparently there's not enough parking in downtown Fuquay-Varina: https://www.cbs17.com/news/local-news/wake-county-news/fuquay-varina-s-downtown-growth-is-presenting-new-problems/1997462703
  6. A new mixed-use project is now under construction in downtown Boone. It will include a 4-story mixed-use building with 64 units and 4,262 ft^2 of office space, as well as a parking lot (behind the building) and townhomes on the hill above. Here's an article from 2016 detailing the project: https://www.hcpress.com/front-page/mixed-use-development-proposed-king-street.html I drove through Boone two weeks ago, and snapped a few pictures of the construction site:
  7. The NC House's proposed budget would remove language capping state contributions to light rail or commuter rail at 10%: https://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/article229940729.html Assuming I'm reading this correctly, this is promising news for cities, such as Charlotte, looking to build new transit lines.
  8. The two have always had similar colours, but I'm a bit more confused by why CPCC's new website uses blue instead of the grey-green in the video. The blue and gold are almost the same colours as Wake Tech.
  9. Terrible news breaking — 2 dead and 4 injured in a shooting at UNCC: https://www.cbsnews.com/live-news/uncc-shooting-multiple-dead-injured-shooting-university-north-carolina-charlotte-today-2019-04-30/
  10. CPCC unveiled a new branding today, which includes a completely redesigned logo and website, as well as new school colours:
  11. Graham St. was blocked past that intersection today. Had to divert onto MLK. I'm not sure how long the detour will last but you might want to consider an alternate route if you travel through that area.
  12. Thanks for sharing! I was just in Greenville yesterday (made it to 3 additional counties!) and thought Uptown definitely has a lot of potential. It's already pretty lively despite its small size, but new development is slowly coming back with some apartment complexes along Reade Circle.
  13. The City of Durham is requesting proposals for a redevelopment of their soon-to-be-vacated Police Department headquarters at 505 W. Chapel Hill St: https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article228823734.html The project will include affordable housing, too.
