    I agree with you in that Matt should create how impressive DTR’s skyline would look if they maximize what valuable lots are still available for real towers, and I promise you, city officials would follow Matt’s lead.

    Being the seat of State Gov’t makes Raleigh the densest of all the state. Oh wait – you mean population density, my bad!

    Has anyone heard about the nonstop flights to paris from rdu

    Yes, I have. It is a great move and shows that the Triangle could become a destination in the future, if we play our cards right. Hopefully, similar flights will be established to other European countries.

    I am overwhelmed with desire for an update! But when? Also, I agree with an earlier post about the watermarks… people would love to steal this as their own…. but think of ME and my desire for a beautiful, unspoiled desktop picture of my future home!

    I think the views of DT from Dorothea Dix and Western Blvd may offer a more full view of the skyline once Edison Towers and Charter Square are finished…new money shots.

    Most definitely. So will the views from the Rock Quarry Road ramp onto I-40/US 64 East, I think.

    Hi Ernest 🙂 I do remember that day at Five Points and I still look at the photos every now and then. I wish we could do something like that again.
