Default Bradford in Cary (DAvis and High House)

So, I noticed they started clearing land and put signs up for the infamous development at Davis and High House. It's going to be called Bradford.

New Luxury Apartments in Cary NC, Bradford Apartments

Commerical brochure: http://liveatbradford.com/CSE-Bradfo...cial-Flyer.pdf

Looks pretty nice to me. Not sure it will be a blight on Cary. It does look like they put some Townhomes closest to the adjacent property and even they are separated by a good sized green space and the road.

Also looks like the two stoplights they will put in on Davis will be quite a help to those leaving the rear of Stone Creek Village and Rigsbee Farm. Maybe it will end up like Park West and actually solve traffic problems already existing.

I saw the signs too. That's not a great intersection, sight lines are pretty bad. I didn't realize that they were putting in another light but I think that will help. Still happy we didn't buy that house we liked in Georgetown at Preston, though!

While I'm excited at the prospect of having another area to walk to, I worry about the ability to attract businesses. I'd love a bookstore, shoe store etc but there are still so many empty stores in Stone Creek.

As a daily commuter on Davis, count me as worried that the stoplights will choke things up unless they somehow get the lights timed perfectly. The backed up cars stopped at High House will extend way beyond the new stoplight at Valleystone. I don't want to end up with another clusterf___ like the mess between Davis & Lake Grove and Davis & Morrisville Carpenter.

This is what concerns me about the rampant development on this corner. Yes, there are some success stories in Stone Creek (Five Guys, Tribeca), but there are a LOT of empty stores there as you point out. I fail to see where we need more empty stores, especially since Park West is already way ahead of the development pace of Bradford. And Searstone is finally getting off the ground, after years of delay.

Unfortunately, too often the greedy developers have too much influence over the town council, who simply looks at this as a potential tax revenue source. There's nothing worse than a half-empty development.

They are going to have to time these lights just right, because traffic in that area is bad at rush hour. While I do side with the rights of the landowners to sell to the highest bidder, the town council needs to understand that a major development on every corner will not be conducive to traffic flow.
