Construction Updates All Week

An epic walk downtown and lots of pictures means more blog posts are coming. This week will pretty much revolve around the current construction going on in downtown. I went to most of the construction sites this weekend and got some pictures of each project. This could also be a preview of what new stuff we will be watching throughout 2009.

I’ll get things started before the work week with this little update on Fayetteville Street. Progress Energy has replaced their old arcade over the sidewalk with a new one and workers are now putting the finishing touches to it. I’m also curious to know what will go on the ground floor of the building now that the RBC Bank has moved out.

  1. It’d be nice if they could put some kind of retail in downtown, even if it’s a chain. I was in NYC last week, and granted it’s a bit more established, concentrated, and populated, but its nice when things flow from day to night with steady traffic. Retail would help downtown with that.

  2. Looks like the new facade will be more embracing of pedestrians, as far as I can tell.
    However, it looks like they ripped out the street lights directly in front.
