Shoppers at the Boundary shops can use the Boundary's garage, but that's a bit of a chore just to get a smoothie or for a convenience store run. People would be far more willing to use that garage for a more extensive stop, like lunch or dinner. The block the Boundary sits on seems more like an island, not real conducive to walk-in traffic beyond the residents of the complex.

The lot behind BB&T is actually for Chico's. Jimmy Johns has no parking except for the few spaces along the back wall of Bicycle Post near the ATM and usually the delivery drivers and employees use those.

Everyone who owns parking lots in that area have started monitoring their lots. You begin to see why the city shouldn't allow these projects to go up without adequate parking included. The bankruptcy court doesn't even have parking for its clients, yet there's a vacant lot immediately adjacent that's the perfect size for one.

Meh...on parking downtown...the city JUST BUILT a deck a block and half away.

5 Points parking lot is also like 2 blocks away.

Walk. It's not suburbia.

I agree with a lot of your full post. I don't know that Vidant will buy their practices either. But I have to be honest with you.....when has a State government ever been able to successfully run a business, other than the ABC stores (but that's win-win - it's alcohol). That prospect would scare me to death. I think it would be the death of the health system out here. We would go from ECUP bleeding to the whole system bleeding. That's just my opinion.

It's a "chain" that started in Charlotte, but I swear they have some of the best burgers I've ever had.
I just recently went to Bad Daddy's Burger in Winston-Salem, great burger. I would totally be behind one going in the Boundary. But you sure in isn't to close to Pops?

Yea, that's why i think it should go somewhere in the city. My perfect spot for a place like Bad Daddy's would be in a redeveloped mixed use area on Dickinson Ave, in a multi story building with a 2nd floor patio (similar to the Carolina Ale house layout) Part of me really wishes the Ale house had put the exact same building at the mall into an area downtown.

Something like this (CAH in DT Raleigh)

I think hospitals are the one exception...UNC Health Care, I believe is the most profitable hospital network in the state and is literally putting WakeMed out of business. Over 3 billion in revenue, nearly 150 million in profit.

If you look around the country, some of the most successful hospitals in the US are state owned and connected to Med Schools at large Universities (UCLA Hospital, Univ of Pitt Medical Center, UPenn Hospital in Philadelphia, UC-San Fran, Indiana Univ, and of course UNC Hospitals are some of the best hospitals in the world).

Also just want to follow up on something that was previously posted about work being done in one of the Boundary commercial spots. It's actually the one on the end, which would be slated for a restaurant. Drove by today, and doors were open and work was being done. Not sure if that's general construction or not, but worth noting.

Land adjacent to River Park North could soon open to general public | WNCT

Not sure if they recently donated it, or if the donated land will finally be opened to the general public soon
