We have made progress, but we still need to make more.

^^ My fault entirely. Disregard the $1.9 billion 40 acre megadevelopment when discussing development in that part of town.

what's interesting to me as I look through that is how much density increased compared to what I remember. interestingly, when it was 2007, I felt like Raleigh was such a big city. So much going on and activity everywhere. now, 12 years later, I feel like Raleigh is such a small with much more needed density, even when considering the residential density that has taken place east of person street and south of MLK.

I'm not sure what it is that drives this discrepancy. I can only assume it is that I am used to everything here now that it's old hat and less impressive and that I'm better traveled and have experienced and read more about what growth can do for a city.

Is it coming down cause it is in poor health, or for new development, or what?

is it possible to claim the wood from it if I had a project that I wanted to do? it would be cool to have the wood be from a piece of Raleigh that I recognize, rather than just some stuff from Capital Lumber.

I would hope that something memorable would be done with the wood. It's been that way on NC State's campus now for a while. Everything from memory benches, to small wolf keepsakes to trunk sculptures.

My impression from these animated gifs was that it looks like a lot of density has been built but there's something off about it, like you still don't really sense a "community" emerging. Just more people. I guess it takes time.

^^I mean, it's on St. Albans just a half-mile or so from the Harris Teeter in North Hills right? I'd have to imagine it's going to add more traffic at North Hills.

I think he must be talking about the shit-hole town in Sampson County.

I only went twice, but i thought the restaurant was awesome and was planning on going back soon. Oh well, guess I'll go to The Stanbury....

Does anyone know what exactly is going on with Capital Club 16? Is it shutting or is the owner doing a new thing elsewhere as well?

North Carolina Railroad Working to Rezone The Depot, Offer a Mix of New Uses

Quote :
"A rezoning case that’s been in progress throughout the year involves The Depot, the long warehouse situated at the end of West Davie Street fronted by the delicious Videri Chocolate Factory. Owned by the North Carolina Railroad, a desire to develop more of their properties seems to be part of their future. The rezoning would allow for up to 20 stories of new development and could possibly alter the layout of the existing Depot building."


https://dtraleigh.com/2022/08/north-carolina-railroad-working-to-rezone-the-depot-offer-a-mix-of-new-uses/

Sounds like the core Videri is safe, but they gonna dig up everything else. Rip Tasty Bev's downtown location.

I watched the meeting and yeah there isn't much in terms of options to save the Berkeley. This is what happens unfortunately in the gentrification cycle.
