I agree, the projection there is quite good and the sound usually is too, but the rest of the theater and most every Carmike I have seen is so far behind the times. I kind of doubt they would convert it to Dollar status, but who knows. Maybe it will drive them to actually spruce things up a little. Though, the chains are not exactly sitting on huge piles of cash now.

Really that whole shopping center is on the edge I would guess. There is a Food Lion and a Dollar store there already, so its not like they are pushing high end retail. So, the new center may pull in higher end tenants and maybe the "rising tide lifts all boats" and it improves or I could just as easily see it becoming exclusively lower end if some stores move to Park West in the next year or so and the theater eventually does go discount.

ugh, TJ Maxx, Dress Barn, rack Room Shoes... Is this going to be a low-end shopping center? I was hoping for more of a North Hills-type place: pedestrain friendly, mid-to-high end shopping, nice restaurants with outdoor seating.

It sounds like a very typical suburban shopping mall (maybe with a pretty face). I don't know why you thought it'd be upscale - the following list of tenants was released a year ago:

Developers Casto Properties and 1st Carolina Properties have also released a long list of tenants that will join Target, including: Buy Buy Baby, T J Maxx, The Dress Barn, Rack Room Shoes, Mattress Firm, Sprint, Omaha Steaks, New Japan Express, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Zoe’s Kitchen, Platinum Nail Spa, Fantastic Sam’s, Massage Envy, Kilwin’s Chocolates and Ice Cream, GameStop, Ruckus Pizza, Pasta and Spirits and Deluxe Cleaners.

I guess I'm "low end" because I'm looking forward to it opening - no more driving to crazy Crossroads on a Saturday afternoon!

Well it was originally going to be higher end. However, they had to cut back the total size due to whining from NIMBYs which meant less total density and less variety. Then with the economy tanking they had to cut back further and accept some mid tier tenants.

Ah, I stand corrected then!

Thanks.

Had my hair done today and learned that Jay Andrews, an Aveda salon is opening a second location at Park West Village. Depending on your point of view, this could be considered a high-end tenant...or not.

I have been very happy with the Apex location, but I certainly would be tempted to go somewhere closer.

I JUST READ THIS!!! I"m so excited!!! Then again, my stylist there lives in Apex and I don't know that she'd come out to Morrisville (and I won't go to anyone else).

Getting close to Target opening. Can't beleive it after all this time. It will be nice to be able to avoid Beaver and Brier Creek more.

I'm also happy to see that they are continuing to start new buildings out there, in addition to what will open this fall. Hopefully, the momentum will continue and we will get the nicer mixed use stuff in a timely manner.
