Pic of the Week
Raleigh’s giant copper acorn has a new home. It was moved from Moore Square to the corner of South and Salisbury Street. I imagine the reason is to clear the way for the impending redesign of Moore Square. The construction shown in the photo above is the new Residence Inn on Salisbury Street.
Fiber is indeed coming as Google’s ad campaign continues on. It’s no secret now that the building at 518 West Jones Street will be home to the area’s Google Fiber offices. Or maybe showroom? Storage room? Who knows. Either way, Google has been very hush about the work that’s taken place in Glenwood South and […]
