Drive by photos today of the new Crabtree Terrace building across from the mall.  I see it is elevated to prevent flooding too.

Thanks for the photos. This is arguably the worst development project we've seen in, oh, 20 years in the area. They built a short, ho-hum building in the floodplane with a tall ugly parking garage right up on Glenwood ave. The result, a building that has no marquis frontage, makes no visual statement about it's surroundings, has poor views from inside, and requires its employees to navigate up and down a parking garage, then navigate up into the building to reach their destination. Putting this building on top of the parking garage would have better protected it from floods and been much easier to use. I have some patients who have already complained about how cheap the Allscripts building in North Hills feels due to having to use a separate parking garage next door., This is truly a lost opportunity for the Crabtree area.

Yeah I tend to agree.  That Crabtree building is boring, drab, and really contributes nothing stimulating to the area it's in.

It should have definitely been built on top of the parking deck. Would have been prominent as hell.  It looks cool, but it's kind of hidden due to being snugged in that spot. 

But... it does add the highest density office space in metro Crabtree Valley.  Certainly overall a nice addition to the Raleigh tax base, despite how much more awesome it could have been.

      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.

      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!
