It would be NC's version of Minneapolis/St Paul.

If Raleigh and Cary would join as one city it would be, 197.20 sq. miles and have a population of 621,200 as of 2016

It is hard for a city of 458,880 to justified a LRT to a City of 162,000. But if they were all one it makes a difference.

Maybe Raleigh could get a LRT from downtown Raleigh to Cary. It would have more choices for transportation projects and getting federal fund to help pay for them

One of the fastest-growing cities in the country, Charlotte is expected to gain more than 400,000 residents in the next 20 years.
And to put the population gain in perspective: “Imagine the city of Raleigh moving to Charlotte in the next few years.” That's precisely how Dan Gallagher, transportation planning manager for the Charlotte Department of Transportation, frames the picture.

(This is a dated rendition of the skyline.)

A poster from another site created this of what the new Duke Energy Tower should look like.

The amount of office space going uptown is crazy. Especially for a metro area it's size.

Built this year and under construction towers uptown:

Babson Financial tower - 463 Ft.
Legacy Bank of America Tower - 632 Ft
Ally Financial Center - 378 Ft
Regions Bank Tower - 252 Ft.

Duke Energy looks to be around 500 ft.


Here's a webcam view of the area

I will be glad to see Lennar Multifamily start on their 30 story apartment complex in first first ward. It will will be a good fill in for North Tryon.

Lennar is planning for a mixed-use project with two residential buildings. One would total five stories, with about 197 units, on top of ground-floor shops and restaurants. That building would wrap around a parking garage with more than 900 spaces, according to the plans.
The second building would be a 30 story residential tower, with about 342 units, plans show.
