Five Reasons I’m Encouraged About the Research Triangle Region’s Future

January 13th, 2017

By: Chris Johnson

News & Observer

Op-Ed

Last year, the world said goodbye to a long list of entertainment icons, Britons opted to leave the European Union and an alarmingly caustic tone crept into our own national politics.

Closer to home, a deadly hurricane and massive forest fire punished North Carolina’s landscape. HB2 made the state’s economy ground zero in the latest culture wars. The social legislation complicated the richly competitive process by which urban destinations like Durham and Raleigh vie for Knowledge Age companies and workers.

Still, there is much to be optimistic about regarding the long-term direction of the Research Triangle region in 2017 and beyond. Here are five reasons I am hopeful about our future:

McCandless Crossing Shopping Center Near Capacity…

November 22nd, 2016

Except for a few storefronts and a parcel of undeveloped land, the sprawling McCandless Crossing shopping center along McKnight Road is near capacity, according to the project’s developer.

The latest addition to the mixed-use complex in McCandless — Paint Monkey, which features painting classes and parties — opened earlier this month, said Anna Dougherty, spokeswoman for AdVenture Development, based in Selma, N.C.

In October, a Texas Roadhouse steakhouse opened along with the independently owned Rue Boutique, which sells apparel for men and women, beauty products and home furnishings. Since the spring, a Deer Creek Winery outlet, the Gifted Hands Gift Shop, Burgatory, Chipotle and The Joint chiropractic center have been added to the mix.

Deer Creek Winery Prefers Centers

November 21st, 2016

Shopping Centers Today magazine

Anyone seeking to sample some of Deer Creek Winery’s roughly 20 varieties will come up dry at the local liquor store or bottle shop. A search over at the local shopping center, however, could yield a happy result.

Rhonda and Denis Brooks knew in 2009 when they launched their Pennsylvania-based winery that they wanted to interact directly with their customers, so that they could share their stories and their passion for wines. But a visit out to the nearly 100-acre winery, in Shippenville, Pa., some two hours from Pittsburgh, was anything but convenient for many. The winery would have to go out to these customers, as it were. “We started with the retail locations because people were asking us for them,” said co-owner Rhonda, who is married to Denis and is speaking for this article. “We kept hearing people say, ‘Oh, I wish it was closer.’ ”

The couple tested their mall strategy in 2010 with a kiosk at Clarion (Pa.) Mall that wound up doing very well. Today, besides the main winery, the company operates five stores across the state, the most recent of which opened in September at McCandless (Pa.) Crossing, about 10 miles from Pittsburgh. The others are at Beaver Valley Mall, in Monaca; Clearview Mall, in Butler; Kohl’s Plaza, in Hermitage; and The Mall at Robinson, in Pittsburgh.

“We had several national retailers to start off the [McCandless] project, and then we were really looking for some smaller businesses to bring that local flavor into the development,” said Anna Dougherty, marketing and social-media coordinator for Adventure Development, developer of the 1.2 million-square-foot, mixed-use McCandless Crossing project. Deer Creek Winery not only fit the bill but also offered shoppers an interesting experience, Dougherty says.
