Photos from today this JW Marriott hotel at Plant Riverside is getting ready to open in November of this year. This is a great project new construction blending with renovated old power plant all along the Savannah River. This project will include an extension of the riverwalk further towards the bridge.
As noted on UP in the last week or two Preffered Office properties is going to start a 30 story tower and Kane will be the leasing agent.
More about the tower here
Triangle Business Journal article about it today
""Atlanta-based Preferred Office Properties plans to build a 30-plus story office tower in the heart of downtown Raleigh. It has announced its plans to develop 121 Fayetteville, a proposed office high-rise near the North Carolina State Capitol. “We are happy to confirm our plans to develop 121 Fayetteville, a new, landmark, 30+ story office tower along the capital city's main street," says Boone DuPree, President of Preferred Office Properties. "Designed by Duda Paine Architects and leased by Kane Realty Corporation, the cutting-edge building will be iconic and contemporary in form and function.” Plans for the building feature 375,000 square feet of rentable space, street level retail and amenities such as 25,000 square foot floor panels, a private outdoor terrace, a public 15th-floor sky lobby with an outdoor terrace and a state of the art fitness center.""

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!
