THIS is why I voted for MAB. She cares about our city; how it looks and is represented to the world.

WOW !!! this is where Raleigh gets really Bold, Downtown Raleigh has something to really show the world what we’re made of. truly pushing the limits and setting the bar on companies coming to DTR. I do love this design, :crossed_fingers: :construction_worker_man: :+1: :cityscape:

…I wonder where they “stole” those pictures/designs from? Credit too?

But, is there still a parking podium on each of these?

God why do they have to tease us like this I feel like there’s almost no way something of this magnitude gets built. But I’ve never wanted to be proved wrong more in my life.

They can launch them from the top of these buildings and we can watch them from the top of the Walter in North Hills :rofl::fireworks:

But, the shadows!! The shadows!!

I understand these are just conceptual renderings to show the flavor of what the city is looking for, but wow these are awesome! It will be great if we get anything approaching these.

Will be really interesting to see what kind of responses the city gets. Hoping for a high-end flag for the hotel, inspiring design for the building(s), a Fortune 500 headquarters, and an active pedestrian experience!

This quote stood out…

Council member David Cox said he hopes the process will include the possibility of affordable housing.
