Raleigh December 2010 Series

December 15th, 2010

Rather than waiting to accumulate large collections of images, I plan to start posting photographs shortly after I take them. This will decrease the time gap between new content. Thus, this should be the last “series” I present, unless something fits a theme. Stay tuned and Happy Holidays!

    Ernest,

    You are right on the mark. I would be very skeptical of an article wrtten by a subsidiary of WRAL, who also owns and has a financial interest in the Tobbaco complex in durham.

    I am sure y’all saw the N&O article on Red Hat, titled “Red Hat tantalizes with search for space”. It is the best summary I have seen to this day. Bottom line: incentives will be the deciding factor. Also, important is Jim Goodmon’s persistence to “steal” Red Hat from Raleigh. Sure, it is better to keep the company to the Triangle, but he could have done this by teaming up with other Raleigh developers, making a better offer, instead of trying to bring Red Hat to a place that doesn’t even have a project large enough to accommodate the company’s needs. Scientific Properties’ Van Alen proposal is a very distant vision to be considered – plus, Goodmon is not involved in it – but the developers have a lot on their plate to even come forward with official site plans and details.

    Ladies and gentlemen of Red Hat: Forget about DT Durham, or any place outside Raleigh. There is only one place that fits your needs, and that is DT Raleigh. There is one project that offers you the visibility and image Red Hat deserves, and that is The Edison. Plain and simple, so stop looking around. Get whatever incentives you are offered and the rest of us in a huge downtown celebration.
