Is anyone in the loop with what is going on with the Person St. District?
• I thought I heard Person St. was going to be 2-way traffic with a new bike lane (and possibly a median) between the Peace intersection and where it turns into Wake Forest. Is this still happening? Did it get scaled back? Heard this is next on the list after the new capital/peace bridge is done.
• What is the status of the older buildings like ‘Marsh’s Woodwinds’ and the little strip of artist shops on the corner of Person and Franklin? Could there be some major development coming to those spots?
• What is Hobby properties planning on doing with the former “Retro Fitness/O2 Fitness” location? It’s been vacant for a while now and they aren’t even utilizing it for parking to their other property across the street. Why not?
• Is there a height limit in this district? Are you guys envisioning some mixed use coming to this area?
With all the development going on, I feel like there hasn’t been as much conversation about this area, which has a lot of untapped potential.
