The 10 Arros project is probably, to the best of my knowledge, the first project in recent history to tackle our need for residential infill along the New Bern-Edenton corridor that’s not a single-family home. Just outside of downtown, this corridor is becoming a bit of a modernist corridor.
With New Bern - Edenton planning to be a Bus Rapid Transit corridor in the next 8 or so years, infill at higher density will be important. However, zoning that represents today’s density, as well as more restrictive neighborhood conservation overlay districts from the 1990s, exist in this corridor.
I predict a controversial debate in our future that say, “How do we upzone New Bern Avenue from downtown to WakeMed?”
