LOL no worries, I'm just being a smartass!

I am trying not to get my hopes up, trust me. I know I will have to possibly give up my ideal area in return for a minimal commute/good schools area.

Luckily, my job field is still needing people and they won't frown upon my out of state address.

That's too bad. Its a really cute community of garden apartments that's close to campus and not a bad commute to other parts of town. I know people who've started families there. I guess its just not dense enough.

I guess NC-54 is about to get as busy and developed as 15-501 going out of town. 8 years ago, you could zip from Estes Road up to I-40 in no time at all. Now it takes forever.

Guh that doesn't even make economic sense in today's market. "got carried away" my ass.

Funny because I spoke to Rick in the office last week, and there's already a waiting list so this "below full occupancy" level seems bogus to me.

I hope there aren't any tax incentives now that we have a new president. When was this proposed, do you know?

It was only a few months ago that the developer first presented their plans to the town council. They've since withdrawn the proposal due to the backlash, but I doubt they're giving up. If you search the News and Observer or Chapel Hill News websites, you should find stories about the original proposal.

Note that development in Chapel hill takes a long time to get approved - often 3-4 years from start to finish.

The paved paradise and put up a parking lot. That really grinds my gears, and I'm not even a resident!

3-4 years isn't too bad, I was hoping to rent for 4-5 years until I figured out where to plant my roots at exactly. Still, I should probably avoid it all together trying to get in there at Glen Lennox.

More about Glen Lennox in the paper today. The level of news coverage of what's going on there (or not) should give you some indication how controversial this has been.

thanks! It's really a shame what they're doing. I lived in similar type apartments in Southern Pines about 12 years ago, they were at one time officer's housing quarters I was told. It's these little pieces of history that will be lost. Hopefully they will preserve some units as they say.
