Does anyone know what new development is happening on Martin Luther King Blvd & Fayetteville Street? I thought I read somewhere that a Lowes is going be there?

os08, you read my mind. I was going to post a similar question!!

There is a sign at the corner that says that Lowes is going in. But if you go N of MLK on Fayetteville they are also clearing another section of land. It almost has the feel that it will be a subdivision. Does anyone know what is going in there?

I believe a WalMart StuporCenter was planned for that intersection at one point? WM has delayed some of their projects but think they were aiming for that area.

That's going to be a retirement community called Alta Walk.
Press release: http://www.sraco.com/assets/files/Alta%20Walk.pdf
"The project will include two, three-story buildings with elevators and a one-story building, plus 14 cottages. A 14,000 square foot leasing/activity center will provide ancillary services such as planned activities, meals, transportation, educational and athletic classes, and other services."

Your link clarifies that we are talking about Durham and not Raleigh since there's an intersection of Fayetteville St. and MLK Blvd. in Raleigh. What's the chance that saying "intersection of Fayetteville and MLK" can apply to both cities? I wonder if there are any other examples of two roads being similar?

Confusing, isn't it? Perhaps we should ask the moderator to alter the title of this thread just to clarify things.

do you think they will widen Fayetteville St to 4 lanes to accommodate the traffic going into Lowes?

They probably will widen the road right around the shopping center -- that and sidewalk construction are typical requirements for site plan approval for projects like this.

However, I wouldn't look for the much-needed widening of Fayetteville from NCCU to Woodcroft Pkwy anytime soon. The City tried to swap funding sources with NCDOT, such that the City would pay for the widening of Alston Ave in East Durham and the state would pay for the widening of Fayetteville -- so as to bring a more pedestrian-friendly road design to Alston while allowing a typical suburban arterial in Fayetteville -- but that's likely to be batted down for political reasons. According to the city website, it's probably 2011-12 before the construction is done.
