TTA Eyes Raleigh Warehouse For Commuter Rail Station

Posted May 16, 2002 11:19 a.m. EDT

— A restored warehouse in downtown Raleigh may be torn down.

The

Triangle Transit Authority

wants to buy the West Street building and replace it with a $50 million commuter rail station.

That is not good news for the eight businesses in the building, some of which recently spent thousands of dollars to renovate their spaces.

The commuter rail station would likely help downtown by bringing in more people.

The TTA hopes to buy the West Street building in the next year or two.
