I hope they got you to cut the ribbon at the grand opening Larry
Larry Bliss: I had my giant scissors at the ready... smile
An interesting building that looks a bit like a cross between a cricket pavilion and a budget hotel
Larry Bliss: the architect is a cricket fan... wink
Is this the one we have seen via construction photos?
Larry Bliss: No. Those photos were taken nearby, where they are building a parking deck...
different...
Larry Bliss: I like different...
I guess it's a good sign when new construction is happening anywhere nowadays, Larry??!
Larry Bliss: I agree, but Raleigh needs more jobs...

I hope the inside is a little more cheerful than the 'grey' outside.
However a new building is a new building and a lot of people have made money from it/with it....
Larry Bliss: Tomorrow will be visible the other side, which is warmer...

I like it Larry, warm, pleasantly proportioned and, I like the grey tones and the warm looking wood.
Larry Bliss: It's designed by one of the state's leading architects...

It looks an interesting place, I like the idea of a porous car park
Larry Bliss: That caught my fancy too...

Are you having a lot of building locally, Larry?
Larry Bliss: Yes. Condos are under construction in the next block, and other ones are going up within a three-mile radius of my humble apartment.

Fascinating to see the building on your link. I wonder if there was strong competition to design something different?
Larry Bliss: I am not sure. The architect is highly respected in his field, but I imagine the competition was stiff.
Glad you pointed it out Larry, I might have missed it smile
Larry Bliss: Glad to be of service...
