Looks nice. I think this will be the first extension of sidewalks down McDowell?

Surprised nobody had commented on the “automated parking facility” yet? Like I’ve heard of that in Tokyo but in Raleigh?

I assumed they meant automated like most of our decks, where you push the button to get a ticket and the barrier arm goes up and down to let you in and out automatically.

I expected a robot to park my car. #disappointed

Perhaps I’m reading into the semantics too much, but the use of “loading bays” in the same sentence as “automated parking facility” actually makes me think the parking structure will be more akin to this than a normal parking garage.

The decks now can even just scan your license plate as you approach so you can get in and out without having to interact with the kiosk.

Seems really cool, but when I watch that all I can think about is all the problems that could happen. Like the system being down and no one can get their car for days, or a line of 15 people waiting 2 hours to get their car because someone’s card gets rejected or forgot their code etc. Again, seems really cool but there’s no way that’s worth the cost lol.

TBJ article on it here:

https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2024/05/16/kindley-street-hotel-downtown-raleigh.html

The article mentions an “automated parking rack system” which makes me think it’s more like what @OakCityWildcat mentioned.

I’m thinking about George Jetson’s car folding into a briefcase.
