I think all of the buildings they plan to take down have been removed at this point.

That brick mulch under the trees is an interesting touch. I guess the nice thing is it doesn’t was away quickly.

Bringing this inquiry to this thread:

I’m going to say within 30 days though I don’t know if construction permits have been issued so that kind of makes predicting more difficult.

November 3rd.

EDIT: I fully expect at least 2 cranes on this project.

Which comes first 400h, the Hilton Garden Hotel, or the Cabarrus development?

HGI crane first. There’s already bags of concrete and rebar.
Like this post enough and I’ll run down and get some pics (you know I’ll do it anyway).

Are these the renderings of the proposed construction?

Yes but only the apartment side of the project is slated for construction anytime soon, far as I know

Here is the link to what’s currently being built.

so looking again at the plans @clairebertt just linked for us, the train platform side is going to be all parking deck? I really hope they do some sort of treatment that is a) good looking b) greenery or best of all c) room for a massive mural/art instillation. Think “welcome to Raleigh” or “travel by train” or some sort cool, civic boosterish deal.

I agree- especially since it will be visible from places like Wye Hill. I definitely understand why they chose to put parking there, but hopefully it isn’t too dull.

I heard from a neighbor who is working with Kane on branding for this project that the designs have changed from what we last saw, but I haven’t seen anything new myself. :woman_shrugging:t2: Still just the apartments, though.

The project isn’t on Kane’s project page anymore, but Raleigh Mag apparently has a blurb in their October issue with familiar renderings and has even declared this area the West End district. I guess that makes @clairebertt and me West End Girls.

We will have to do something to liven it up!

How do we shorten West End??
Wend?
WesEnd?
I’m struggling here. We need a cooler name, dammit.
