Raleigh is thriving amidst the poor economy. Ernest thanks for the update on Charter Square. 10-12 months will fly by and the project will be well on its way. Any word on a projection date for the ground breaking of The Edison Project?
Emanuel, your guess on The Edison is as good as mine. The confidence is there. The developer is solid, with good credit and excellent reputation. He did say that the completion date will bearound 2018, which means that Gregg is going to work very hard to make it happen. He is a man of few words and he seems to be a doer, not a talker. I would say that if we give him another year, he may surprise us with the ground-breaking of The Edison – the first tower, anyway.
Charter Square is another project that makes me a little unhappy. Sure, they will eventually make it happen, but they have already dragged their feet. There are 3-4 developers involved in both towers, yet they are still in the drawing board. I have faith in this project, but I will hold my enthusiasm until I see the fist tower getting completed.
Now, if you (Emanuel) want to smile about something, feel free to send me an email (via my website) and I will share something positive… Really positive. Can’t post it in a public forum, I am afraid ðŸ˜‰
