  1. Perhaps a more realistic option would be to connect Hardimont to Browning Pl.
  2. I like the midtown loop idea. I wonder if you could do the same on the south end. Bring the track south along the Beltline to Centennial/Dix and reconnect to the rail line at NC State/Pullen.
  3. I think you could interpret "supply chain logistics" that it simply would cost too much to transport the parts to NC, or reversely that the Alabama location would save a bunch of money on that front. Perhaps Toyota actually preferred the NC location, but couldn't make the economics work. We're playing catch up on auto plants. We need to find a different industry or market to corner. Too bad Boeing went to SC.
  4. Yeah, the N&O coverage has been needlessly pessimistic.
  5. The Charlotte City Council just put the breaks on Charlotte's MLS bid. Good news for Raleigh.
  6. Slide 10? http://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2012/08/02/slideshow-a-look-back-at-crabtree.html
  7. I think the grey top floor is off-putting. It was the first thing I noticed and is too reminiscent of the cookie cutter apartments. Get rid of that and there are a lot of great elements—the brick and especially the windows.
  8. Yes, new building closer to the retirement community. http://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/blog/real-estate/2015/05/allscripts-12-story-tower-north-hills-raleigh-nc.html
  9. I get your point Captain, but the Cobblestone Hall is small by comparison to marketplaces in other cities. Think of Quincy Market in Boston. Imagine the indoor section of the State Farmers Market with less emphasis on produce, plus a few "open air" restaurants.
  10. The Warehouse District needs some more public/tourist spots, especially near Union Station. Before all the warehouses are gobbled up, I'd love to see the city redevelop one itself as a marketplace style building with small retail and dining.
  11. Ack! Hadn't noticed. Now it's the only thing I see.

    I almost spilled coffee on myself when I saw today's N&O business section. Here is the rendering: I'll wait to reserve judgement until I understand everything, especially the timeline....but I am very excited!
