I don’t have enough material to post for a full series before I head out of town again, but I wanted to supply a small update for those would appreciate it.
Elevated view from West Street.
Repeating Fayetteville Street.
RBC Plaza has pleased me so far, and is making nice progress.
The emerging Glenwood South skyline.
The infamous Peace/St. Marys street angle has definitely morphed over the last couple of months.
Thanks for your patience!
Well worth the wait. Thanks for the shot of the elevated view from West Street. I am so glad you remembered my request for that shot. Rell I agree with you about the 3rd photo making Raleigh look huge. I love the progress on RBC and even that old, less than looking Marriott.
One more thing…., The view of the skyline from Gennwood South…AMAZING. Is that the West condo project or the 222 condo project? Whatever it is, it adds so much to the appearence of the skyline from all views that include that building in the shot. Raleigh is SO on the move. YEA!!!
I always look forward to these – especially more so now that I am out of the area 5 days a week.
Not to jack the topic here or anything – but I haven’t seen anyone point out how the progress with Glenwood South and the area around the West at North and where the Quorum Center is now making for a nice view when you enter the city coming down Capital Blvd. Because of the topography, you really can’t see downtown well as you drive in on Capital – although once you get to roughly where Wade Avenue is, it’s nice to now see buildings emerging on the skyline where you couldn’t see much before. Raleigh is looking good!
One more thing – Michael Bryan, not sure if you are in Raleigh or able to get downtown – there are numbers painted on the corner of the RBC tower every five floors. Last time I checked (end of October), they were topping out the 21st floor. So it’s easy to see the progress that way.
One other thing I meant to respond to as well – I might be one of the few that loves the madness that Peace Street is (sounds like an oxymoron, I know). Or maybe not the few? That picture is awesome!
