The N&O is reporting that Kane has purchased the Southland Ballroom, a 1.24 acre sight at the place where Harrington bends west towards Peace. This is a spot featured prominently in the city's recent downtown "Experience" plan. Nice to see Kane looking to downtown again, hopefully Dillon gets out of the ground quickly and this can move forward too. I hope he and the city would consider trading the right-of-way where Harrington bends towards West for a right-of-way through this site to stitch the two pieces of Johnson Street together.
Recently @Jones_ posted in the Triangle Economic News thread about Kane's desire for better transit at North Hills and how it would be amusing if he ended up being what could light a fire to cause light rail to actually become a thing around here. This could be a fun exercise in the creativity of people on here. If you had to figure out how to run a light rail line between downtown (let's say the new Union Station) to North Hills, how would you route it? Would you go straight up Capital and over? Would you add a jog over to Five Points? Where would you have stops (if any)? Are the kind of developer that would be frugal/conservative to the community, would you bulldoze a daycare while laughing from your corner office, would you find a balance somewhere in between? Go go go! I encourage use of Google's MyMaps to facilitiate and share ideas: https://www.google.com/mymaps/
