This Downtown Cary Thing Is For Real!
August 19th, 2014
Sitting in front of Gather on Chatham Street in Downtown Cary, enjoying a nice cup of coffee, I can’t help but feel a sense of being on the cusp of something big. There is a palpable energy down here. Empty commercial spaces are being filled with new business ventures like Paisley Boutique, Belle restaurant, and of course Mission Possible Team Realty, just to name a few. The Cary Farmers Market is buzzing and The Cary Theater has a full slate of shows and performances. The Mayton Inn has broken ground and by this time next year will be hosting folks from all over the country as they come to Cary and Raleigh to do business or just to visit. The brand new Cary Visual Art Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition is in full swing. The sidewalks are a constant stream of folks and traffic is heavy.
Of course there are plans in the works for many more things to happen down here but I wonder what we do not know. Someone is planning something big. I can feel it and I want to be a part of it. I envision condos over retail, live music on the street corners, art galleries with open exhibitions and more, more more.
I know there are doubters and naysayers but my gut tells me they are wrong.
I can just feel it.
