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....
