Default I did!

I saw it yesterday! I was in town for business and stayed at the Sheraton across the way. From the outside, it looks pretty good! They have the RBC logo up and all. I'll be curious to see the new Marriott, too!

Last month, I walked by, but it was barely rising out of the ground. I thought the yuppie photos lining the sidewalks were funny.

Since some of the smaller units will sell in the $200's, I wonder how much they'll lease for.

Downtown Raleigh for July 2007 - RaleighSkyline.com - Photography and Multimedia of Raleigh, North Carolina

There are some great pictures of the progress on many downtown construction projects on this Web site, including RBC and the new Marriott. Enjoy!

That part of town will be in a few short years, worth the money.

absolutely!! no offense to folks in the burbs, but if you don't live, work, or play downtown it's hard to get a real appreciation of how much is growing on. i think there's something like $2 billion in development being invested through the next 3 years. The changes to the skyline are just a small aspect. We're going to see a significant increase in residential and cultural improvements (condos, restaurants, museums, etc.). After all this time, downtown Raleigh will finally get some responsible and efficient urban planning that any capital city should have. What makes it so great here is that it's among the best educated regions in the country, which should continue to fuel the economy and cultural additions. Exciting time to be here.

Thanks guys... Suncat!! I am getting addicted to the web-cam...Great to hear about the increase in development...It sure is an exciting time to be there...Being from NY, there are area's in NYC I would not venture to walk around in.. lol... Hopefully the RBC will NOT be in one of those areas... Looks alittle quiet from the pics... But nice...T/Y!!!
