They're also going to have to consider adding LaCroix holy water to attract the millennials. That's not cheap.

Was an attempt made to get a comment from Tim Clancy of Clancy & Theys about the future of the Cabarrus St. property? They owned the land through an LLC. Same for the NC Railroad Company that owns the old Amtrak station.

Just doing some back-of-the-envelope calculations here. Let's assume the church can sell those properties for $3mill (probably a low estimate). Let's also assume they can get a 5% return (again a low estimate considering they don't pay taxes on endowments). That means, with no assumed compounding, they'd earn $150k/yr on the sale of the homes. Let's now assume that the 78 spaces brings in 100 new adults each week to the church every Sunday for a year (probably a high estimate given some of the spaces would be filled with those that already go to church). Then those adults would have to give $1500/yr on average to equal the return from a sale of the homes. The average Christian gives closer to $900/yr. So, they'd need these new parishioners to give about 1.7 times the average rate over the year to match the return on a sale of the properties and this doesn't even figure in the cost of converting the properties to a parking lot. What they need to do is fire their financial adviser.

Hello, William. I just discovered ITB website. Someone posted, on Next Door, that Seaboard Wine is moving to High Park and presented a link to learn more about the move; and I discovered your website. I see that I can follow ITB on FB, Instagram, etc., can I get the news using just by using my email address? Please let me know. I’m sure I’m thinking I’m not the first person you’ve heard from that grew up inside the belt line. I moved here, with my family, in 1959 and there’s no other place I’d rather live than here. I did moved to Inside Wade in 2011. And moved back to my Barton Place townhouse in 2014. Now that, to me, is the true Inside Wade. Thank you for creating this website and keep up the good work!

"White Oak Shopping Center off Glenwood Avenue" Oak Park Shopping Center?

Name the new addition Izzy to honor Broughton's wise and winning soccer coach. I think the name works for male or female.

Replacing the beautiful, functional Seaboard Station shopping center with a cheaply-built high density apartment complex will lower our quality of life. Growth in Raleigh has reached the tipping point. Growth is no longer enhancing our quality of life, it is diminishing it.

I can't remember if they ever actually said where it would go. People thought it might go in the building where Peace China/Ace Hardware/O2 Fitness is or in the building currently housing Oak & Dagger/18 Seaboard.

Any idea where the Harris Teeter was planned to be at Seaboard (without going multilevel)?

Yeah, we were trying to say that the Capital Boulevard improvements included the City buying those properties. And they aren’t that far away.

The Foxy Lady and Milner Inn were nowhere near Devereux Meadows.

To be fair, Five Points does need more parking near Lilly's. Remember to allow ITBlake only one bullet.



Comment on Development Beat: Work Begins on Orvis at Ridgewood, Where’s Wahlburgers? by LarryL

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 04:58:26 +0000

In view of the Orvis siting on Wade, one wonders how much longer the store at Triangle Town Center will be open. That mall, and particularly the outdoor section, seems to be in a death spiral, with so many empty storefronts.

Isn't the street on the left side of the image the future Harrington connection? It's a part of the future "square loop" exit coming off of Capital to Johnson to Harrington get to Peace St. In this rendering it appears that the viewer is standing more or less at the bottom of the current southbound exit from Capital onto Peace.

Jeff, I looked at the Google map again more closely and you’re right: it’s the old service road. I was in the area tonight and the road is gone, and I think you’re right that’s it a courtyard/open space area for the residents. And thanks for the kind words! It’s my pleasure! James
