    Triangle Economic News

    The Triangle is fortunate that RDU serves so many destinations given it's not officially a hub. More than any in the southeast outside of Charlotte or Atlanta. It serves more direct flight destinations than Nashville but a few less than Austin.

    I don't think Fayetteville Street is very boring. Raleigh has been able to keep a lot more historic buildings that Charlotte has.

    Charter Square (Site One)

    To be honest I'm a bit jealous of the FNB tower Charlotte is getting. A bit taller at 31 floors and I think looks slightly better.

    It was pretty much topped out in that picture. Here's the live webcam:

    Yeah, think of The L that wraps the Wake county parking deck.

    Also from the latest N&O article: The site is zoned to allow up to 12 stories, but it's likely that any future developer will request a variance on that, he added.

    But also only the slightest bit smaller than the Dillon block. EDIT: Also, since I work close by, I really hope for some commercial space, especially on Jones street. Neither Link nor Metropolitan have added any, and there's not any in Quorum. Give us a bodega or something!

    Quorum is a good example, but for something on that scale really they need to raise the height limit from 12 to at least 20. We can have The Dillon II: Electric Boogaloo.

    N&O Site

    I wonder how much this site is in play for Amazon. According to the latest N&O article, Amazon's visit was only interested in two areas - downtown Raleigh and RTP. A couple 40 floor towers on this site could help them get close to the initial 500,000 sq feet they will be needing, along with some new towers in Warehouse and elsewhere. In similar situations I've seen demo take place then a surface lot be put up. Parking fees offset demo costs. I think this is what the Edison office tower site did.

    Over a year is a long time for it to just sit there boarded up. I guess that building isn't that important too them. No, I don't think something large would get built here. Probably on the scale of the Lincoln, Metropolitan, The Link, etc.
