Dorothea Dix Park

I agree…I could see a structure going in front of the Duke Progress Energy Center for The Performing Arts complex? Not the “city block” that is currently used for parking. (Sale that to Red Hat for there new headquarters)
But that space literally right in front of the Duke Center…maybe something very, very tall but not too boxy at its base ( Eiffel Tower like/open) so that it won’t totally block the “whole” view as I still want and hope the city completes that view down Fayetteville street. :blush:

Since when are fireworks only for children? Silly comment.

Thanks for your feedback. :roll_eyes:

Here is what Dix has presently. Not very high but it’s a nice touch considering there was just grass and dirt there previously.

Hi all. @raleighwood had been silenced for two weeks as a warning. I encourage others like them to consider keeping things classy. I hope you don’t mind me removing his posts and associated replies.

@ netposer

Very nice :+1: thank you!
Where exactly is this on the DIX campus?

Hi @DowntownRaleighGuy,

I think I’ve got this right. I believe the deck in photo was built behind this house which was recently renovated


#56

Yes. It’s on the backside of that tiny house they just remodeled.


#57

nice shot! I guess I thought this was an office and wasn’t open to the public. The remodel looks great from the exterior.


#58

Yeah its just above the cemetery…and currently, the sunflowers as well.


#59

It’s an information center and they have a large conference room with a big table.

Thank you, Leo. That person’s posts had been getting on my nerves. Love the enthusiasm, hate the constant negativity. We should be using this space to talk about proactive solutions to improve DTR rather than complaining 24/7.
