  1. Indeed. I think I read 150,000 sq feet of office and FNB is signed on for 40,000 with an option for more as needed so there should be a fair amount of space available.
  2. 150,000 square feet of Class A office space 240 residential units. Street-level retail plus retail bank branch. December 2017 groundbreaking, summer 2019 opening. This project site was previously called Charter Square North. FNB recently completed purchase of Yadkin Financial which was a large community bank in the area. Maybe this should be moved to the Charter Square thread and renamed to FNB tower, or a new thread started?
  3. It looks nice enough. I had hoped for a little taller at that location, but it's better than an empty lot and we need the downtown hotel space.
  4. They are starting to move employees back into the Albemarle building this week but still looks like a lot of office work is going on inside. I still haven't heard anything about ground floor retail but I think that would be on the Salisbury street side which I never see so maybe I'll walk around it and look.
  5. I had heard it was the home of the York security guard who was on duty there at the time but he was cleared. York is pretty terrible - our HOA dropped our contract with them late last year in favor of another provider.
  6. Developer: Sale of downtown Raleigh’s Flythe Cyclery shop opens up opportunities for big mixed-use development it appears the Flythe Cyclery building at 424 W. Peace St. has been sold. Don't have access to the article so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. Would love to see local cheeses and a local winery.
  8. Too lazy to do all the searching but I'd be interested in seeing what the profit is on a Skyhouse development vs something like The Link or the Edison. Apparently land prices downtown are too cheep if they build so short. I can't imagine the lifespan on these wood developments being more than 50 years. I'd speculate the thinking is "we'll stickbuild now and in the future when land prices go up we'll redevelop."
  9. I'm okay with whatever but in any case I'll be spending money on stuff I'm sure. If they could just get a sub shop back in the vacant place at McDowell and Lane this part of town will be booming.
  10. Two very small fountains on the east side of the capital building plus the ones mentioned. Probably the biggest artificial waterfalls in the area are inside the Natural Science museum (the old wing) and in the Bass Pro Shops in Cary.
  11. Good list. But what really are the plans for the Wake county property redevelopment? I would think nothing on the scale of the unfortunately canceled Lightner project but I have not heard a lot about the land sales and redevelopment.
  12. Cement truck after cement truck all day. They are pumping a lot of cement. Is this whole residential building going to be steel?
  13. Actually Wake GIS lists the commission as the owners of the property. Metropolitan: They are finally getting the backside up so no more blank wall soon: Also there has been a food truck at Harrison and Lane if you are in the area and need some grub.
  14. Nice. I hope the color ends up being a little lighter, maybe closer to Skyhouse blue. That grey is a bit dark.
