    Triangle Economic News

    Considering my business is biotech, I think I have an idea of where the innovation centers are as I travel regularly to the Boston and San Francisco areas but never have any reason to go to NC. As reference, let's look at BioSpace's year over year list of innovative biotech companies. NC has barely any representation. The same could be said for VC investment. https://www.biospace.com/article/1-top-20-life-science-startups-to-watch-in-2019/ https://www.biospace.com/article/exclusive-top-20-life-science-startups-to-watch-in-2018/ https://www.biospace.com/article/the-next-generation-top-20-life-science-startups-to-watch-in-2017-/ https://www.biospace.com/article/top-30-life-science-startups-to-watch-in-the-u-s-/ I am speaking solely in terms of biotech. You people seem to take personal shots at people on here - I would say that is more negative.

    I will re-iterrate that NC (mainly the Triangle as it is the state's biotech/pharma hub) has put their eggs in the biomanufacturing basket and has not made real strides in the R&D for some time. Great if you want low- to mid-paying jobs but the area is really losing its rep as an innovation center.

    Don't sully FLW with comparisons to this crud. Remember he did design the Guggenheim in NYC.

    Stand corrected on GSK. However, RTP is manufacturing heavy otherwise - timely announcement illusrating this point: https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2019/01/08/fujifilm-to-add-100-jobs-at-rtp-campus-through-45m.html?iana=hpmvp_trig_news_headline

    Most of the pharma companies still located in the Park (GSK, Biogen etc.) do not maintain a significant R&D presence - these are primarily biomanufacturing sites.

    And based on the article, there is no plan except to slap together something here and something there. Willard Retail is some 2-bit hack strip mall developer so you can only imagine the cr-p they are going bring.

    Flailing. They are only 20 years behind. That combined with the non-existent transportation plan may be the end of RTP's run. Most R&D has left with only lower wage manufacturing being left behind.

    Publix in midtown Greensboro

    Oh god, even Greensboro has a "midtown" now?

    Nothing but nonsense news as it was a slow day in the Triangle. Rick Smith, that hack at the Local Tech Wire, has no credibility and is usually the one drumming this sh-t up.

    I will bet my life savings that this will NOT be Apple!

    Downtown Raleigh's Future

    The more I hear about this project, the more bizarre it appears. Only Raleigh could pull something this boneheaded off.

    Capital Realty Group appear to be modern day slum lords specializing in government-subsidized housing - far from a win for Raleigh.

    That sounds like a disaster! Wasn't the ballroom the standout feature of this building?
