It's great for North Hills and it's good for Raleigh ultimately, beats an office park on 540. But it'd be even greater downtown....
Yeah, what I mean is I'd prefer it to be downtown but it is a lot better than how they used to throw stuff willy nilly in the RTP. I do like that the area is fairly mixed use with residential over shopping, a hotel, etc. unfortunately it isn't along the proposed light rail line.
