Brier Creek Developments

here is from the TBJ on that hotel from earlier in the year.

""CMC Hotels will soon begin construction on its new Westin hotel at Brier Creek -- a full service, $55 million hotel featuring 233 rooms, 8,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space and 6,000 square feet of retail located at 3931 Macaw St. at Brier Creek Commons.   The Westin is expected to open in mid-2021.""

I will snap a photo of the site when I am in town next month as I am going to the Angus Barn.

not really a development but since the Angus Barn is so close to this area I will put this here.  The ONLY NC restaurant to appear on this list.

Do you know the nation’s 15th largest independent restaurant is in Raleigh?

In fact, this restaurant, in terms of gross annual revenue, is the only North Carolina restaurant to crack the top 100 in the country.

That’s according to the latest report by Restaurant Business.

The place is Angus Barn. The Raleigh landmark is grossed more than $22 million in revenue in 2018 with an estimated average check of $72. And it served nearly 314,000 meals last year. Impressive stuff!

Joes’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach, Florida, was the highest-grossing independent restaurant in the country with more than $38 million in revenue with the average check about $87.

New York is home to six on the list's Top 10, headed by Carmine's in Times Square, which ranked No. 2 overall. The Boathouse in Orlando's Disney Springs rounded out the top 3.

"According to the United States Tennis Association, the Triangle is the fourth most active tennis community in the country, so the chances seem good."

I would have never guessed...

Slight clarification, the article says it would be the largest "multi-raquet sport complex" in the world,  i.e. numerous raquet sports like tennis, pickle ball,  panel, etc. Not racquetball the specific game which is played inside.

Very exciting project. I've had my eye on this for a while and am glad it is moving forward. It was originally announced as tennis complex and keeps diversifying with more focus on other raquet/paddle sports.

I am well aware Blue Ridge Road across from the Art Museum is not really Brier Creek but I did not see a West Raleigh thread.  10 story office building planned for NC DHHS is planned as a consolidated from Dorthea Dix property.

""The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has unveiled plans for its new headquarters tower in Raleigh – and the corner of the Blue Ridge and Reedy Creek roads is set for some big changes.  The plans call for a 10-story office tower with accompanying parking deck and a total of 480,920 square feet of office space.   The property is situated on 34 acres of state-owned land at 3905 Reedy Creek Road across Blue Ridge Road from the North Carolina Museum of Art.""

I sure wish the state would build a 20 story building or so downtown but I guess it is cheaper to build here.

I mean you can make new threads.  Brier Creek is just way off from the Blue Ridge / Wade Corridor.  I'd argue that the Art Museum is more Central than West regardless.

Probably a thread titled "Blue Ridge and Wade Avenue Corridor" as there's not really a good name for that area, but is going to be heavily changing in the next decade, especially when Bandwidth drops their new building.

I feel this Westin at Brier Creek has been slow to complete but of course I dont blame them but it is coming along.  And a nearby famous restaurant.  Sorry I am a sucker for a steak in a barn like this.

Seriously!  The Empire State Building only took 13 months for God's sake!
