Bam! You really knocked this set out of the park!
Glenwood South looking pretty good from this angle.
Also, some of these will come in real handy in the future as a comparison when new buildings are built.
I agree, I thought a great idea for him would be to do a “before & after” of a few spots around the city that have already drastically changed. And in a few years, many of these spots will have drastically changed again! I love it!
The Republican Mafia: AKA “Mr. NO to Everything” Paul Coble and his minions have invited transit ‘experts’ to town and shockingly they say Wake County is not ready for transit, even though it is the most populous county in North Carolina or will be in the next year or so. I’m sure they are doing their usual ignore the tax base created at rail stops that far exceeds the cost-revenue calculation of rail. NO light rail pays for itself in $2.00 ticket fares. The tax revenue from the construction created at rail stops DOES pay for it.
Paul Coble and Tony Gurley represent “Old Raleigh” and not the cool part. They continue to act as if we live in Mayberry. They can spout off the cost of everything and the value of nothing……and usually they cost estimates are heavily flawed and inaccurate
Did you look into the credentials of these alledged “transit experts” before you assumed………whatever your assumption was? Maybe they ARE experts and they DID say Raleigh isnt ready. Id love to see Raleigh with rail transit, but I dont really think we are ready either. Maybe if Dorothea Dix is developed into park/high density residential, we can get rail transit from the NCSU campuses to DD, downtown and elsewhere. But Ill stop, theres no point.
What these ‘experts’ are are people who represent republican-back ‘think tanks’ which is an oxymoron in the first place. Look up the Reason Foundation yourself if you doubt it. This ‘expert panel’ was a scripted mouthpiece for the far right. Do you really think that Jesse Helm’s nephew, Paul Coble, the man who says ‘no’ to everything remotely progressive would ever invite anyone who would speak in favor of something like light rail? Rail is a huge economic development engine. The tax base created at rail stops is exponentially higher than suburban sprawling single home subdivisions……….something an ‘economist’ would recognize.
