Does anyone remember a pond with bldgs on Glenwood?


Recommended Posts

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?

I think the tract he refers to is in red, and the small pond now gone is in blue. It was connected to the larger pond that's still there.

I think you're referring to a small commercial  development between Pinecrest and Ebenezer Church.  Pond was filled in, and the tract was redeveloped as apartments.

This may be the Raleigh Water Garden that you are thinking of.

That sign at the front was a landmark for many years on Glenwood. It was demolished for new developments several years ago. Quite a loss, I think. Tiny nooks and crannies like this are what give a city character.

      There have been several recent residential developments along New Bern/Edenton, and with the coming BRT line, redevelopment will likely accelerate in this part of Raleigh.
      Here are some new townhomes nearing completing at I believe Seawell Ave.

      The western area of Raleigh along Blue Ridge Rd, Edwards Mill Rd, and around the PNC Arena is booming with office and residential density.

       
      Many office buildings are 4 stories in this area, with some, such as this new one, are hitting 6 stories.  This one is being built in the construction area in the above shot. 

      Ground level retail is also becoming more common.  This part of Raleigh is a bit isolated but is picking up critical mass to support it's own eco-system of employment, shopping and residential.

      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:
