^^Amazon has already said that about their decision making and Apple is releasing its earnings today after 4 pm.   Large companies don't usually want to announce any big news before that.

I missed that about Amazon...got a link or anything? That would be like publicly saying we don't like you idiot f*&&s. I would think more tact would be necessary...like pretending to like your inlaws so as to have a nicer christmas.

I will find an article that says Amazon expects to make their decision on HQ2 by the end of the year this year.  Here is what Amazon says itself 

https://www.amazon.com/b?node=17044620011   However an article I read somewhere and in several  places thought it would be end of year 2018.

I have a feeling, like other national level decisions some important people are making, Apple and Amazon are waiting to see how the November elections affect the situation here. 

Apple appears to have pulled back on this entire project with no timeline established. The NC bubbas must have made some impression on them.

I think Apple and Google are delaying any major expansions until the political and the global tariff situations are sorted out.  Both companies' economic fortunes are strongly tied into global supply chains, especially with China.

reimbursement specialists, nurses and pharmacists

I think that is more accurately read "reimbursement specialists, people with some nursing or clinical experience and people with pharmacy experience".   Not terrible jobs at all, but I wouldn't expect MDs to be trying to hit performance numbers for calls per hour.

Yet another Silicon Valley area tech company chooses Raleigh for its east coast headquarters and had ties to the area through NC State.  Up to 20 employees this year and expected to grow fast.

Reports from Atlanta say they have offered over $1 billion in incentives and public-funded development to Amazon... and the number could go as high as $2 billion.

More talk about how the NCGA is making Apple very nervous about committing to the Triangle:

Quote

At least two sources familiar with Apple's interest in the Triangle say the electronics giant is worried about North Carolina lawmakers meddling with constitutional amendments for political influence.

^^^ from the above article 

""But Taylor said that, if Apple is weighing “political uncertainty,” it could be a tactic.  “It’s possible that it’s pretending to get cold feet … as a way of extracting additional concessions from the state,” Taylor theorized.   In the meantime, economic developers say they aren’t worried about the timeline. Ted Conner, vice president of economic development and community sustainability at the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce, wouldn’t comment on discussions with Apple, but said “these things don’t happen overnight.” Companies considering major expansions “need to take their time and get the job done right, because you don’t want to rush into it and find a year into the process you have picked the wrong city or site,” he said. ""

plus a recent article in WRAL said there was some discussion of needed more space at first while a campus was built more than the Cary building targeted and possibly a site in north Raleigh.    This is far from dead far from it.

Basically if you look at the report bottom number pages 36-40 you can read where it mentions Raleigh Durham several times.  This is a real estate report that takes in affect job growth,  population growth, growth of the commercial and residential real estate market,  in migration rates, college graduates etc.  To sum it if in one sentence:   Raleigh Durham is growing fast with jobs, new college graduates, new population, growing commercial and real estate markets and yet is still affordable compared to most of the country and this will continue into 2019.

      I am trying to find a place in Raleigh that would have existed as recently as 2004, maybe sooner. But I cannot find anymore. It seems like it was on Glenwood Avenue heading North, past Crabtree, on the right. There was a pond near the road and an office complex behind it. One story office buildings. You could travel a path to the right of the pond to get to the office buildings. It always looked so quaint. Does anyone remember this?

      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:

      The old Ramada Inn turned failed Duke Condo project turned failed boutique hotel by Graduate Hotels, is in the process of being demolished.  It appears everyone has given up at this point on trying to save the bones of this building and it's going to be razed for a 342 unit apartment complex and parking deck.  The design is being handled by CLINE Design on behalf of Alliance Residential out of Charlotte.
