Most of the news has been on Raleigh or Durham, but here's an update on downtown Chapel Hills.

Northwood Ravin joins Cousins Properties for $100M project in Chapel Hill

123 W. Franklin development is expected to begin demolition and site prep later this year and vertical development to start early 2015. More info.

I took a few new photos of Charter Square South. It looks like it has about 3 more floors to go:

Here is the Edison block; 6 floors of residential over a floor of retail space:

New rendering by JDavis architects of the Edison office tower that will go next to the under-construction Skyhouse. Construction could begin fairly soon. height is 275 ft. (83.8 m) not counting the mechanical floor on top.

It will go just to the left of the under-construction Skyhouse in this photo, and will be slightly taller I believe:

Also, Wake County (Raleigh, Cary, Apex) recently hit 1 million residents! Orange County (Chapel Hill, Carrboro) at 137,000 and Durham County (Durham city) at 283,000 are the primary counties that make up the Triangle area.

Hahahahaha no.

But there was a new rendering released today by Hobgood Architects for Hobby Properties which owns the site. This residential building is across the street from the Edison office tower site.

Neat design. That's a very small site for a tower though - https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...ent=apiv3&z=21

Yes, that is a small footprint. A lot is going on around that block:

Oh sure. Raleigh now will be a mini-Manhattan. :doh: :)

The recently completed AIANC Center for Architecture and Design. The "greenest building in the city." “It consumes half the energy of an ordinary office building, it has windows on every side so we can work in natural daylight and with natural ventilation during nice weather, its roof collects rainwater for watering the gardens, and, best of all, it’s beautiful.” Source

New Critical Public Safety Facility is under construction along the beltway, at Raleigh Blvd and Westinghouse. The Lighner Center would have housed everything in a 17 floor building downtown, but those plans were scrapped when the economy tanked. Now we get this squat little building out on the beltway. Meh.

North Hills Tower II began construction yesterday. 18 floors. Expected completion date is April 2016. News article on the groundbreaking.

I've previously posted renderings, but here's a different rendering:

Now that North Hills Tower II is under construction, they released the rendering of Tower III. It's 28 floors, and they say all they need is a tenant and the permits and they are shovel ready.

Damn, initiald!

I remember when North Hills was basically nothing but a smallish mall. Now it seems to be blowing up to be Raleigh's version of Perimeter Center here (which I always thought would be around Crabtree Valley).

Amazing changes in the Triangle over the last several years.

Vatnos Sep 15, 2014 10:40 PM

Downtown could really use that 28 floor building.

It's unfortunate Raleigh's local developer with the deepest pockets and most overhead is unwilling to build downtown, and goes to great lengths to pull businesses and residents away from it. This is the one thing Charlotte will always have over us. Their private sector has always embraced downtown. Raleigh's government supports downtown, and Raleigh's voters want to improve downtown and build it up, but there's a disjoint between their views and the views of major developers in the Triangle still. That's a problem we need to do something more radical about.

It's the same thing we see in places like Atlanta with Perimeter except in this case it is in city limits. I am mostly opposed to it simply because the transportation infrastructure can't really handle it.

I would be fine with it if downtown were currently getting more and taller proposals, but it isn't. The traffic argument really doesn't sway me much. The transit around North Hills can be improved. Changes to the intersections, better connections to the surrounding neighborhoods, reworking the transit hubs to account for the greater population there, etc. People will use the same argument against development inside the beltline...

It's great for North Hills and it's good for Raleigh ultimately, beats an office park on 540. But it'd be even greater downtown....

Yeah, what I mean is I'd prefer it to be downtown but it is a lot better than how they used to throw stuff willy nilly in the RTP. I do like that the area is fairly mixed use with residential over shopping, a hotel, etc. unfortunately it isn't along the proposed light rail line.
