  1. Popular Charlotte restaurant Midwood Smokehouse is coming to Smoky Hollow. This is a well run restaurant group from Charlotte and the food is very acclaimed in the QC. ""Midwood Smokehouse expects to enter the Raleigh market by early 2022. FS Food Group has signed a lease for 4,125 square feet in the in the Smoky Hollow development at 528 N. West St. in Raleigh. That project will cost between $1.5 million and $2 million, says Frank Scibelli, CEO. “We have had our sights on Raleigh for a few years,” he says. “We love the location.”"" This is one of my go to places in town and even Pre
  2. For those interested and since it is in the same state here is the Wake County transit plan for 2035. Lots of bus rapid transit 24 miles which should all be in operation in 10 years, some 37 miles of commuter rail between Garner Raleigh Cary RTP and downtown Durham. (the good thing is RTP is right on the NC RR lines) Notice emphasis on frequent service even outside the BRT areas and reliability. (page 30) Wake-County-Transit-Plan-Update---FINAL-ADOPTED.pdf (nmcdn.io) enjoy the read and I would hope CATS could learn some things from this.
  3. Here is the Wake County transit plan for the next 20 years. Wake-County-Transit-Plan-Update---FINAL-ADOPTED.pdf (nmcdn.io) Bus Rapid Transit and very frequent bus service to most all employment centers in the county and RTP and the commuter rail plan.
  4. About 1 hour north of Raleigh is Warren County one of the poorest in the state. Huge jobs announcement there today Glen Raven is expanding their plant there with 200 new jobs. Glen Raven's expansion in Warren County to create over 200 new jobs - Triangle Business Journal (bizjournals.com) ""Glen Raven Inc., which is based in the Alamance County town of Glen Raven, will invest up to $82 million into its Norlina facility where it makes synthetic yarn used in its Sunbrella brand of performance fabrics. The new jobs will pay an average salary of $31,710 annually, according to Warren Cou
  5. I sure hope any entertainment district will have some housing on it at least on the edges. That is county or city property and should include a mixture of usages to be successful. Plus I think a park on this locally owned land in a city starved for parks should be included. I will wait to see the plan but a mixture of usages is best. I know some of you HATE the Battery in Atlanta next to Truist Field there but it has hundreds and hundreds of apartments, restaurants, bars, concert venue, a hotel and 2 office buildings.

  6. Better.com an online mortgage company based in NYC came to Charlotte 2 years and said it would create 1000 jobs here in 5 years. They are at 1000 jobs in 2. And they are looking to locate an office uptown which is great! ""The firm plans to set up a new campus strategy in Charlotte. The office will be within the Interstate 277 beltway, likely in the uptown area, Clark said. Better.com wants employees to have access to public transportation. She declined to give further details but noted that all employees are scheduled to be in the office by January 2022."" Plenty of availabl
  7. NC is #3 in the nation in attracting Gen X with their highest incomes only after FL and TX. SC comes in at # 5 15 States Drawing High-Earning Gen Xers | Realtor Magazine
  8. Basically like a showroom which many online retailers now have as brick and mortar locations. Not many if any products but displays and yes lots of computers to ease shopping and shipping. Basically like what Nordstrom is doing with their Nordstrom Local stores. 3 of which are in LA. Why with your entire technology division in the building above not try some new things. Sort of like Krispy Kreme with their doughnut automated dispensing machine. Just trying to think outside the box. Nordstrom’s tiny new stores basically won’t have any stuff in them (fastcompany.com)
  9. Well if it is biggest lithium deposit in the world or one of the biggest the company needs to be a lot forthcoming. To me they are not building support for the project which is needed but actually causing people to be skepitcal of their intentions with landowners. If this was happening somewhere in Meck County the public oppostion would be much more intense given these sets of circumstances up to this point. From what I have seen and heard from local Gaston officials they have not been forthcoming about their plans or details. That is a problem.

  11. I still think Lowes should take one of the smallest retail spaces and set up computers and have someone in there to help people to shop Lowes.com and show the breadth of products that have online ( alot more than in the stores) and sell services. Did you know we can install this?
  12. Same could have been said about when the NASCAR Plaza building was built as there was nothing around it either in terms of retail. This building will lease fine it has on site parking and it is brand new with great views. There are only 2 other brand new office spaces in uptown the BOAT and Legacy 2 tower. It is one/two blocks to retail and restaurants by Romare Bearden Park. And I think it is long term play. That sprawling low rise parking deck owned by Duke Energy may not be long for the world. The Gateway center is under way and planning for a huge multi tower mixed use project the
