No comments yet to Lafayette Village takes shape in North Raleigh
Hey what a blog,,,so you take any donations? Just curious?
I wonder: if it’s to be “authentic,” shouldn’t it have like outhouses and stuff?
If Lafayette Village doesn’t work in Raleigh, then all the growth hype about this town is just that … hype.
This project represents an opportunity for the area to have a decent “fun” upscale area to roam around and shop in … vs the other rather “dumpy areas” the Triangle still has to offer.
If it works, then Raleigh can start to show it’s rise as a CONTEMPORARY city to live.
If not, then it proves Raleigh will never be much of the “hot spot” it claims to be.
This town needs to develop more PROGRESSIVE “classy” projects like the Lafayette Village,
otherwise it’s just another “wanta be dummpy” town with nothing to back up all it’s “so-called” progress and new found prosperity.
If you are putting Raleigh’s growth in the hands of Lafayette Village then you have limited vision. Planners love these kinds of projects; live/ work, pedestrian friendly, etc… and the truth is that lifestyle centers are fast gaining a reputation of being less profitable that expected. I suppose you want to blame Raleigh for that, too?
