  2. Maybe this rendering has been posted before but I dont remember seeing any showing the hotel. Maybe this is just idea or maybe this is the look not sure. From Spectrum's website there goes my view from Railyard LOL.

    to see the office building and the new apartment tower under construction you can move their webcam around. Office building is looking good and to left of the apartment tower you can see the uptown skyline in the distance. https://app.truelook.com/?u=r71562766584#tl_live
  4. Correct unless some changes are made at CATS leadership any attempt to spend even more money will fail with voters miserably.
  5. 100 new jobs coming with Fortive Corp. $2 Billion spinoff company Vontier to Raleigh. https://www.wraltechwire.com/2020/08/07/new-transportation-company-vontier-is-planning-100-jobs-for-its-hq-in-raleigh/ Major global company now based in Raleigh including big operations in Greensboro with their gas pump maker division. https://www.vontier.com/
  6. this would be the biggest announcement in Alamance County a new UPS facility in Graham Mebane. ""A commercial park in eastern Alamance County is under consideration for the largest single economic development project in the county’s history. At its Aug. 11 meeting, the Graham City Council will consider approval of its share of nearly $4 million in economic incentives payable over five years to United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS), which is considering a $262 million facility in North Carolina Commerce Park (NCCP) just off Interstate 40. The performance-based incentive would require UPS to successfully complete the project and create 451 jobs paying an average salary of $65,147. The average annual wages in Alamance County is just more than $40,000."" https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2020/08/07/graham-to-consider-incentive-for-ups-facility.html
  7. Cresswind Charlotte the age restricted community at I-485 and Albemarle Rd has 100s of homes now. And you can get to the Novant Mint Hill hospital without getting on any main road or by taking a golf cart. Their clubhouse is HUGE.
  8. drive bys of Apex Southpark the apartment, retail, church and hotel mixed use project. A distance photo of the church which looks good and was the starting point on this whole project. My thoughts is that when First Presbyterian uptown wants to develop their block on West Trade I would call Childress Klein first as they now have good experience with a project like this. a cloudy day in August is a good thing to cool the high temperatures.
  9. 201 new manufacturing jobs coming to eastern Guilford County with Prepac, a Canadian furniture company. https://www.nccommerce.com/news/press-releases/governor-cooper-announces-201-new-jobs-furniture-manufacturer-chooses-guilford
  10. I never know with these national studies like this if they mean Raleigh Cary MSA or the Durham Chapel Hill MSA or the consolidated area. Many times both Durham and Raleigh show up.
  11. Here is the quote the Abari owner made about culture in Charlotte discussed above. ""“The sale of our building and some surrounding land is being negotiated, and Abari will not have a home at 1721 N. Davidson in the near future. Like most places in the city, developers are stifling creativity and killing small business. Charlotte has a huge identity crisis going on with a mass exodus of culture and originality and a huge influx of luxury apartments, condos, and regional/national chain businesses,” read a statement on Abari’s Facebook page on Thursday evening."" https://www.charlotteobserver.com/charlottefive/c5-around-town/c5-development/article244790087.html https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2020/08/07/abari-arcade-bar-closes-in-noda.html

  13. I will tell you how there was no internet shopping, no Amazon, very few Walmarts only department stores to shop in. People drove uptown to shop but the large department stores uptown were struggling for years before they closed. My aunt worked at Belks uptown but the mall stores at Eastland and Southpark siphoned off customers and they were in decline. When Belks uptown closed in 1988 Iveys just bought by Dillards was closed soon after. Just a different time and people shopped differently. There were not discount apparel retailers either like TJ Maxx or Ross or Kohls.
  14. the Herrin Ice site in my opinion will be a good spot for retail with the mixture of uses planned photos 1-2 the Chadborn Mill project looks great! photos 3-5 somehow these photos jumped out of order but I think you can figure it out.
