Is Veridea a timely venture?
I guess the financiers and the market will determine, if the Town of Apex approves the project.
"Double the tax base," "30,000 jobs," "8,000 homes," multiple millions of square feet of offices, shops, manufacturing. 10-15 year project window.
Immmediate concerns are water supply, and of course green space and environmental considerations.
I think the next leg of 540 is absolutely critical to project completion and success, but may well make it a winner.
Edited 6/11 to add/insert:
Well, "Correction is good for the soul."
Yesterday, I received an email from Lauren Simmons, Apex Town Planner.
It seems I failed to read the fine print as well as I might.
The maps posted below show the I-540/Salem Street Small Area Plan, as developed by the Town of Apex.
The proposed Veridea is not part of that plan, and does not even abut that plan.
The Veridea assemblage is south of US 1 and west of NC 55, while the I-540/Salem Street Small Area Plan straddles the Old US 1 corridor, a mile or so northwest of Veridea.
This map shows one of the tracts to be incorporated into the proposed Veridea project. Zoom out and click around to discover other holding of HH Development, and you will begin to flesh out the scope of Veridea.
What can I say?
#1 ranking in Google for search term "Veridea" and in error.
The Town of Apex website has had a file posted on the small area plan that includes Veridea (WRONG). It includes maps of the area, and the proposed project.
Good studying for anyone who is interested.
