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.
