Raleigh's new Union Station opens April 30th. It will now service increased daily trains between Raleigh, Greensboro, and Charlotte (and further Amtrak service to DC, Atlanta, etc.).

It will also be service by commuter rail in the future as part of the Raleigh-Durham commuter line that will be funded by the transit tax that passed a while back.

Wow! I used to go to Durham all the time to visit my Grandmother when I lived in NOVA.
Alot of changes. Granted it's been 17 years or so, but good stuff.

Groundbreaking today for 22-floor FNB Tower



This is now the tallest under-construction tower in Raleigh. Seven floors of office space, 239 residential units and a terrace with a pool. Construction is expected to be completed in 2019. The foundation is already in place so the tower should rise fairly quickly. Source

This great aerial shows the site of Kane's smokey hollow development. It will be 12 floor residential with a ground floor Publix grocery store. it will be very transformative to this area of downtown and will serve as a catalyst for more development here. Also, you can see the construction of the new bridge and interchange where Capital Blvs crosses Peace street.

Oh, also the tower crane is now up for FNB tower (as mentioned in my previous post).

One Glenwood as of this morning. The tan colored bricks are starting to go on it. Also last week another 10 floor office building was just announced for this block right behind One Glenwood. FNB tower isn't really going vertical yet but the tower crane is up.

North Hills (Midtown) development:

"Construction is expected to begin on the 33-story Walter Tower later this year, while Tower 4, a 20-story office tower, is already coming out of the ground. Tower 4 will add 325,000 square feet of office space to North Hills, Kane said in an interview."

^^^I'd much rather see that stuff built downtown than in the more suburban North Hills.

While it would be nice to have Downtown, this is good for congestion maintenance and overall city development. I think having a "Midtown" develop is something that Raleigh can capitalize on. Density without support isn't good, and honestly, DTR's downfall is public transportation and the like thereof. It's only just now beginning to fill the void with hotel rooms and capacity restraints thereof. You don't want to force density into downtown if it can't handle it. Let's celebrate continued growth in the city. All it will do is encourage more!

Word is a new 20 story tower has been proposed at the old police station near Nash Square. This would consolidate government offices in the city and lower maintenance costs. Source -> https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle...source=twitter

Yes, they have looked at various proposals, some around 14 floors, some taller. I think this would be good for the site. The city owns the whole block so there is room to consolidate city office as well as some public/private development.

The site has a squat little 3 floor parking deck which could be torn down and replaced with maybe 7 levels of parking with a tower on top like the recently completed The Dillon.

It would also be good for the surrounding street scape to get something developed here that is more pedestrian friendly. It's just sort of a blank wall.

Here's an update on the FNB Tower thanks to Leo Suarez at DTRaleigh:
