"The rezoning request currently comes with no development or design plan, and Gordon Smith said that will be up to a future buyer. He said he and his wife hope to find a developer with a good vision for the land.
“We’ll sell it for development with the best proposal we see,” Smith said. “It’s time for me and Beverly to do what’s best for this property for the next 50 years.”"
Looks like from your information, it may not be as big a deal as thought from TBJ headline and teaser. Unfortunately I can no longer see details of reports So change topic name to " Potential new 20 story building"
I wasn’t replying to downplay your post, I’m actually really excited the owners are deciding to do the appearance committee’s job for them and selling to the best proposal. I’m hoping for a building like this I saw in London a few months ago, although larger.
DTRaleigh is on the job! I was coming to post this and there is already a new thread with several replies.
Great spot for a new tower, though it is likely a long time before anything actually goes here.
Only slight downside is that something here would likely preclude expansion of Marbles, but that doesn’t seem very likely anyway with their finances being impacted by Covid and i think lower tax support than previously anticipated.
