Here’s something that I just had to share. I found this graph very interesting. If you can’t see the embedded tweet click here.
It shows that 8.6% of office space in Raleigh is located downtown compared to other cities that we generally compete with. Raleigh’s downtown really is small for the city of our size and the reverse rush hour traffic pattern that we have is very unique.
On the flip-side, perhaps this lack of office space has allowed the residential and arts communities to grow in downtown. Something to think about.
