The Mayor said “I want to emphasize GREAT DESIGN, I want to emphasize GREAT DESIGN, I want to emphasize GREAT DESIGN”.

“Reinforce the message [of great design]” to the stakeholders.

Hopefully those comments mean something to the interested parties.

Wait, that’s not Raleigh, NC is it? Must be a misprint.

Tonight, the stakeholders will be releasing a website for the project and will include promotion information and a video. If someone can get that URL it would be awesome.

Also, the stakeholders will be promoting this project and the RFI details at the ALIS Conference 2020.

Is it supposed to be https://raleighnc.gov/hotelcc ? Site doesn’t seem to work as of right now.

That link might have been temporary as they were going to show the video at the meeting but due to delays it was not shown. I think there’s going to be a separate website just for this project but I’m not sure.

Any insights on the timeline for potential groundbreaking?

I believe the request is written so that there’s no pressure to close on this project until the perfect partner is found.

Is this something that was proposed and I just missed it?

It is just a teaser for the RFI process. The actual design will be 99% completely different. But nevertheless it shows how bold the council envisions this project in terms of height and design

Bold move city, marketing their land like the private sector… paying for fancy renderings and everything. Nice.
