  1. An apartment complex in this area has already been torn down, Whitaker Park, I think, on Pine Street... to make way for $700,000 + homes (The Oaks at Fallon Park)... so I'd say the neighborhood is pretty much in transition.
  2. a few weeks ago... closest is cameron village now.
  3. someone mentioned old navy, i believe...
  4. this does look like a really cool project. can it really be completed in 2008? that'll be here before you know it...
  5. god i knew you'd be all excited about that haha
  6. well, considering there are 3 huge malls within a 20 minute drive of downtown Raleigh, I still say that plunking a mall in the middle of downtown is not the brightest idea I have heard in a long time. I have never been to Macarthur Mall or whatever it is called... actually, I have never even been to Norfolk, so maybe I am just missing out. I doubt it though. I have, on the other hand, been to Providence Place on several occasions, and spent a lot of time in Providence in general. I had a sibling at Providence College, and when I visit my family in New England, I fly in to Providence nearly every time. It is a wonderful city that has truly been revitalized. I think Raleigh could learn a lot by looking to Providence. That does not mean a mall will be the answer to Raleigh's woes... I think the bigger problem with Raleigh is having a city council that listens to 90 year old women from Smithfield when deciding what to do downtown. That is just brilliant... let's build a downtown that caters to people who will be dead in 5 years! god... anyway, I think it would be great if Raleigh spruced up city market (and it will take more than some gas lanterns people) and the Moore Square area in general, and turned that whole area into a shopping district that could be on par with North Hills. Like everything in Raleigh, there is so much potential in that area, yet it just sits there... it is nice enough, but could be so much more. OK, time for work...
  7. just my two cents... I think the idea of a mall downtown is ridiculous.
  8. ^that was so bad it was actually funny
  9. ^^ lol i thought the same thing, then i opened the article and was like the downtown location, wtf? i missed that they were talking about philadelphia...
  10. awww how nice. thanks for posting this.
  11. I think they are making the pope house a museum... anyway, the Boston aquarium is not very large at all, it is more tall than wide. i don't think it would even need a whole block. i am not good at judging the size of things though. also, the Boston aquarium is not really that great... but it sure does attract a lot of people.
  12. my parents got a thing in the mail about this... while i think the plan to make Cap. Blvd a freeway is a good one... i think it will seriously screw up their neighborhood, so I am kind of torn about it.
  13. god you are incredible. thanks for the info. ; )
  14. jones, isn't the yellow and magenta (red?) house the Leonidas Polk house? that is what we said ont he trolley, but you know how reliable that info is hahah...
  15. that is funny, the guy who wants to build tunnels. he looks like he just crawled out from uner a rock, so maybe that's where he got the idea.
