Saw a drill next to the Firestone last week in what appeared to be soil testing. Anybody heard anything about the Firestone block recently?
What type of drill rig?? Could be soil/groundwater sampling for due diligence (small probe rig) or geotechnical drilling (larger rig) for structural design. #GeologyRocks
Ditto this. Whiskey Kitchen had to dig out tons of contaminated dirt under their patio. There could have been a plume someone else gets to deal with now…
That hilltop corner would make for a prominent 20 story mixed use tower.
Evan, you are too funny…20 stories…Lol
SkyHouse II perhaps???
That would be maximizing the zoning, and that is a hilltop I’m not in the “Raleigh must look like Manhattan” camp, but I would like a wider skyline and activation of that corner
The parking lot to the left of the Firestone shop
Sounds like I might have to investigate this… and pop in to Crank Arm while I’m in the neighborhood
Oh duh…you guys mean the actual Firestone! I was referring to the Whiskey Kitchen site which historically was a Firestone Tire shop
Yes, activate that corner in an urban manner.
This block is begging for redevelopment
Truly, and these photos really emphasize the opportunity.
Indeed. That south west corner is ideally suited for a signature building.
with development around train/bus stations, will be a gap of low use land that should attract development. May depend on city upping the zoning first.
Somebody do something (SDS)
Bulldoze everything and make it a gravel lot!
