and hotel is slated for completion in the fourth quarter. “Demand has been fantastic,” said Sheehan of the 30,000-square-foot project. “People realized that there are 6,000 tenants in Perimeter Park who need daily services, and it’s just a great tie-in.” The 140-room, four-story Hotel Sierra will entice Triangle commuters with luxury room amenities; a lobby wine, beer and coffee bar; and an outside fire pit and space for meetings. The office park is also home to the new divisional headquarters of Time Warner Cable. The four-story, 160,000square-foot office building is located on Paramount Parkway, directly across from computer maker Lenovo’s headquarters. Time Warner and Duke, the developer, are shooting for “silver” certification under the Leadership in Energy


and Environmental Design standards developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. Employees are scheduled to move into the building in spring 2009. On the education front, Wake Technical Community College is planning to build a new 77-acre campus at the intersection of N.C. 54 and Watkins Road in Morrisville, directly adjacent to Perimeter Park. The need for a third campus, joining existing main campuses in Raleigh and Cary, stems directly from Wake County’s rapid growth. Although construction on the Morrisville campus is a few years out, once complete, the western Wake campus is expected to become the school’s “high-tech” center, dedicated to teaching the technical skills needed at nearby companies, according to Wake Tech representatives.

the hindu society of north Carolina “Morrisville is really booming, and we are praying for this improvement.”

Morrisville’s Hindu Temple is open daily for morning Aarti and for private devotion and is also open during all public holidays and religious festivals.

W

hen the Hindu Society of North Carolina (HSNC) was founded in 1976, it consisted of about 25 people meeting in a private residence. Within 10 years, the Triangle’s Indian population had grown so much that the HSNC was able to purchase six acres of land in Morrisville at a nominal price. A region rich with high-tech jobs is the primary catalyst of such growth. “We bought the land because Morrisville is equidistant from Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and all the Triangle area and is very close to the Research Triangle Park. This is a very central place. We were thinking that it would change and grow,” said Saroj Sharma, religious advisor and one of the priests of the temple.

Grow it did. On December 17, 1986, the temple opened its doors to a congregation of 300 worshippers. Today, the temple is home to more than 1,100 members and has seating for 1,700. It sits on 16 acres of land, with plenty of room to expand. The continued growth of Morrisville is something for which the HSNC prays. “I, too, live in Morrisville. Morrisville is really booming, and we are praying for this improvement,” said Sharma. The temple sponsors various activities every month, including the RTP Ganesh Festival, which takes place over the course of 12 days in September to celebrate the birthday of Hindu god Shri Ganesh, known as the remover of obstacles and patron of good luck. Indeed, Shri Ganesh seems to have smiled on Morrisville.

Hindu Society of North Carolina is located at 309 Aviation Parkway, Morrisville. For more information, call 919-481-2574 (Temple) or 919-460-0412 (Cultural Hall), or visit www.hsncweb.org/index.php. 8 Morrisville Chamber of Commerce


Grace Park & Park West “We’re offering an urban taste in the suburbs.”

W

hile a city dweller may leave the office at five, purchase a new pair of shoes, and pick up dry-cleaning and dinner all within walking distance, the average suburbanite would find such a thing impossible. In a world crunched for time, it is easy to see the appeal in a “live, work and play” development concept that allows suburban residents to enjoy a lifestyle similar to that of their urban cousins. Morrisville is on board. Two new developments, one completed and another under way, are providing residents with a taste of city living. Grace Park, located at the intersection of Davis Drive and Morrisville-Carpenter Road, boasts 180 residential units, including traditional townhouses, modern flats, brownstones

10 Morrisville Chamber of Commerce

and condominiums. Restaurants, dry cleaners and a gym are just part of the development’s more than 50,000 square feet of retail space. “What we are doing is offering a little piece of urban taste out in the suburbs,” said Marvin Waldo of Retail Strategies of NC Inc., developer of Grace Park. Park West Village, planned for the corner of Cary Parkway and NC-54/Chapel Hill Road, is under development by 1st Carolina Properties and Casto Lifestyle Properties. It features more than 700,000 square feet of leasable space including retail anchors, upscale casual restaurants and a movie theater, all mixed in with residential and office space. Fall 2009 is the projected completion date. “You’ve got an opportunity to put in Morrisville a place where people can eat,

shop, live, play, be entertained and do everything without having to get into their car and drive from one place to the next. The way Park West Village’s infrastructure is set up, from a lot of communities that surround the site it would be nothing for you to jump on a bicycle with your family and ride over. Catch a movie, have dinner, shop and ride back,” said Connell Radcliff, one of the driving forces behind Park West Village. Combined, the two developments bring 60 new businesses to Morrisville. “It’s a rare community that can support this level of development,” said Waldo. “Morrisville was chosen for this project as its growth really supports this type of project.”

Capri Flavors C “One visit and they were hooked.”

apri Flavors, one of Morrisville’s charms, is owned and operated by Capri, Italy, natives Costanzo and Titina Vuotto. The couple’s success began years ago when they opened a small hotel, La Pineta, in Capri that ultimately earned a fourstar rating. The Vuottos attribute to their success to hard work, good hospitality and great food. The couple arrived in Morrisville about 15 years ago, after a friend told them about the area. “A friend of mine, he called me and said how beautiful it was down here and how nice it was climate-wise,” said Costanzo. One visit and they were hooked. “We came to see it, and then we moved.” Retirement not being an option for the energetic Vuottos, Capri Flavors soon followed. Offering fine Italian foods and products, cookware, and — best of all — cooking lessons with Titina, Capri Flavors quickly developed an enthusiastic following. “We have all kinds of customers, both businesses and private individuals,” said Costanzo. “We also do distribution to restaurants, markets, supermarkets and so on, and we also have a retail store and Internet clients.” Titina has published two cookbooks and especially enjoys sharing her love of cooking with her students. “My wife does nice cooking classes,” said Costanzo. “People enjoy it very much because she has been a cook all her life.” Married since 1961, Costanzo and Titina have four grown sons, Raffaele, Eugenio, Valerio and Ugo.

Titina’s Tiramisu

• 36 ladyfinger cookies • 1 pound (450 grams) mascarpone cheese • 5 egg yolks • 1 whipped egg • ½ pound (250 grams) sugar • 12 cups black coffee • 1 small glass of liquor of your choice (cognac or brandy) • Powdered plain cocoa Soak ladyfingers in coffee, turning them on both sides. Beat the egg yolks together with sugar until a frothy mixture results; stir in the cheese and mix carefully. Add the whipped egg and then the liquor. Mix well into a smooth cream. In a baking dish, spread a layer of cream, then line ladyfingers on top of the cream. Pour a second layer of cream over all and arrange more ladyfingers on top. Top with final layer of cream, spreading evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle powered cocoa generously over the cream. Put into the refrigerator for at least two hours. Tiramisu is at its best if you prepare it one day in advance. Serves: 6–8. Preparation time: 20 minutes. Refrigeration time: 20 hours. Level of difficulty: Simple.

Morrisville Attracts Higher Education “The Morrisville area provides many opportunities for our graduates.”

A

s Morrisville’s close proximity to the Research Triangle Park continues to make it an attractive place for new or relocating technology companies, the area’s growing number of tech-related higher education opportunities is not surprising. ITT Technical Institute and Wake Technical Community College are the two newest additions to the scene. ITT Tech opened its third North Carolina campus in Morrisville’s Gateway Centre last fall, offering associate and bachelor’s degrees in the fields of IT, electronics technology and criminal justice. “Since this is a new market for ITT Tech, we are uncertain of the potential size of the student body,” said director Robert Burnfield. “However, given the heavy technology focus in the area we expect the campus to continue to grow at a rapid rate. The Morrisville area provides many employment opportunities for our future graduates.”

Both the school and town are enjoying the benefits of a strong partnership. “We are making some of our criminal justice lab equipment available for police departments,” said Burnfield. “We envision local officers being able to train on the equipment; hopefully, in turn, our students will get to gain knowledge from the people currently working in the field. If we build strong ties to the local criminal justice network, we will be able to feed that network with quality graduates.” Plans also are under way to build a new Wake Tech campus in Morrisville. The college will occupy 77 acres of land just south of the I-540 and N.C. 54 intersection. It would be Wake Tech’s third major permanent campus. Wake Tech representatives note that the new

campus will not only help to better serve the growing populations of Cary and Morrisville, but will also allow the college to serve the industries creating jobs in the region. Wake County residents voiced their support of the project by approving $92 million in bonds for the new campus in 2007. Chartered in 1958, Wake Tech is the second-largest community college in North Carolina.

Morrisville Pharmacy & Compounding By Lewis Faulkner

“A pharmacy with a special twist.”

E

verybody knows what a pharmacy is. Most city blocks can’t live without one. But what comes into your head when you see a sign advertising “Morrisville Pharmacy & Compounding?” What’s compounding? Has Bank of America’s compound interest division merged with Bayer Aspirin? Do they have a self-serve machine inside, where you can grind your own Tylenol PM? Such questions might cause you to lurch up to the drive-through of Morrisville Pharmacy & Compounding and drop off a prescription. But unless you’re in a super hurry, don’t let convenience keep you in your car. Otherwise, you’ll never experience the friendly demeanor of pharmacist Chioma (pronounced Chee-OhMah) Ugwa. Originally a native of Nigeria, Chioma chose Morrisville as the ideal spot to turn prescriptions into practicality. Why? “Whenever you see more than one chain pharmacy in a location, something’s missing,” Chioma explained. And in Morrisville, that something was an independent pharmacy. Chioma sums up her own work in the chain pharmacies with an emphatic sigh and the single word, “boring!” Just paperwork and onesize-fits-all solutions. So Chioma took the road less traveled and, supported and surrounded by family, opened an independent pharmacy. Now she has the unique pleasure of being able to offer personalized service for people who have been disappointed by the chain pharmacies. She tells the story of a customer who’d just moved to Morrisville from New Jersey with very special prescription needs. “The chain pharmacies wouldn’t even call the woman’s doctor and verify that she needed the drug, much less make the drug for her,” she said.

Long before machines took up the task of stamping out pills, bottling them and corking them with a wad of cotton, human beings called “druggists” custom-created your medicine right in front of you. Similar to your favorite Mexican restaurant mixing your guacamole “live.” Why? Maybe you needed a microscopically precise dose, before there was a microscope. Or maybe you needed your castor oil with enough lemon-lime flavoring to get the goo past the back of your tongue. Not so different, really, from our “have it your way” world of 2009. Except Chioma makes it personal. Got a middle-of-the-night emergency? She’ll come in and get the recipe right. Need a go-between when your doctor’s on the golf course? Forget the on-hold elevator music. Chioma’s already dialing the secret phone number. Sounds like the ancient skill of compounding might be a baby that modernization threw out with the bathwater. Especially when you consider how few people in the United States are actually licensed to use a mortar and pestle. So, if you live in Morrisville, consider yourself lucky. Again. We’ve got something very rare. A pharmacy with a special twist. Lemon or lime. Or, maybe, just flavored with an individualized dose of friendly.

Town Center Plan “We’re developing a vibrant focus for the community.”

A

community’s heart is often said to be its downtown. Not just a commercial center, it’s often the hub for culture, entertainment, education and gathering. The Town Center Plan was established a couple years ago as the blueprint for creating such a space at Morrisville’s historic crossroads. “At first, Morrisville was so small that, until recently, it never grew a traditional historic Main Street like you might see in other small towns,” said Ben Hitchings, the town’s planning director. “But in recent years, as the community was becoming larger, folks really began feeling the absence of a central gathering place. So, it was with great community enthusiasm that the town launched

“We are trying to honor the old and add the new in the project.” a planning effort in January 2006 — a 12-month process to develop a vision of how to create a central gathering place, a sort of vibrant focus for the community.” The Town Center Plan was developed by a committee of civic and business leaders, with extensive input from the community. While many downtown projects are focused solely on retail expansion or cosmetic updates, the plan for Morrisville involves a broader focus on creating a modern cultural center with venues to support the arts, education and green living. A library and cultural arts facility, including an outdoor amphitheater, practice rooms and a theater, will anchor the town center.

“It’s an expansive project that will probably unfold over a number of years,” said Hitchings. The plan aims to maintain a careful balance between preserving historical homes and other sites and incorporating the new elements desired in a rounded, 21st-century town. “We are trying to honor the old and add the new in the project,” said Hitchings. “The resulting plan really blends elements of Morrisville’s historic crossroads village with planned amenities like a Main Street commercial district, a cultural center, public parks and new housing opportunities.”

For more information on the Town Center Plan, visit www.ci.morrisville.nc.us/planning/towncenter.asp. 20 Morrisville Chamber of Commerce


Key Features of the Town Center Plan • Protecting historic structures around Church Street and Page Street • Creating a Main Street lined with small businesses and anchored by a civic/cultural facility • Establishing a Civil War Park and a Rural Heritage Park • Linking the parks and other destinations with a network of sidewalks and greenways • Encouraging new housing to provide opportunities for living in close proximity to Town Center amenities • Investing in a variety of transportation improvements, including upgrades to the intersection of MorrisvilleCarpenter Road and Chapel Hill Road (NC 54), reworking Chapel Hill Road into separate northbound and southbound sections, and installing roundabouts at selected locations to mark the transition into Town Center

Ernest Dollar, Historian

By Lewis Faulkner

“You can’t destroy history, but you can lose it.”

I

f you visit Ernest Dollar at the Preservation Society of Chapel Hill (the Horace Williams House), you’ll find a 30-year-old, articulate historian. But if you really want to experience Mr. Dollar, a better venue might be a place like the fellowship hall at Morrisville’s First Baptist Church. Getting out of your car, you’ll find plenty of bluegrass music, barbeque and sweet tea, with a flurry of kids in competition on the swing sets. Inside the fellowship hall, it’ll probably be hot enough to fan yourself with a paper plate. Listening to the conversations around you, you’ll sense you’re in the midst of a Morrisville family reunion. Of some sort. It’s a nice setting for any historian, self-made or professional. Eventually, a bean-pole of a guy’ll bring out an old-fashioned slide projector. But this skinny kid won’t be somebody’s compassionate grandson, helping set up a black-andwhite journey of endless family boredom. This’ll be Ernest Dollar, starting the slide show. And that’s when it’ll get interesting. Ernest will start fishing the audience for facts. He’ll show a slide, dwell on it a while and goad the audience into telling him

everything they know about what they’re seeing. Audience members will put their bifocals at arm’s length to see, then literally yell out to Ernest the names of the people and places they’re seeing on the big screen. Facts they know first-hand. The kids will have come in from the swing sets, bewildered by that oddest of experiences — genuine grandparent excitement.

He’ll tell you about old photo albums in people’s attics. And even though Morrisville is known as the “Heart of the Triangle,” Ernest’ll tell you he thinks of the town as the “Soul of the Triangle.” He’ll share his visionary goals of Morrisville tourism, virtual museums and his search for the Holy Grail of Morrisville — pictures of the depot. He’ll emphasize that “you can’t destroy history, but you can lose it.” He’ll

It’ll be like a Morrisville version of Trivial Pursuit. And the audience’ll want to take him home for ice cream. That’s the Ernest you need to see in action. And Ernest’ll be having so much fun doing it, too. He’ll point out clues hidden in a picture of an old railway station. He’ll laugh at items for sale in an ancient grocery store, where the prices were outrageously inexpensive. It’ll be like a Morrisville version of Trivial Pursuit. And the audience’ll want to take him home for ice cream. That’s the Ernest you need to see in action. Back in his office, Ernest’ll tell you about his vision for raising historical awareness.

laugh as he tells you the story about finding a genuine Civil War cannon ball, rolling around in the bottom drawer of somebody’s filing cabinet. And he’ll do it in a nice, articulate way. But if you ever get to see Ernest Dollar in front of an audience, talking about the thing he loves most in the world — history  — don’t miss it for all the sweet tea in North Carolina.

Ernest Dollar can be reached through the Preservation Society of Chapel Hill, of which he is the executive director. For more information, call 919-942-7818 or e-mail chpreservation@mindspring.com. Dollar’s book on Morrisville history, titled Morrisville (Images of America), was released in March 2008. It is available at local bookstores or through online retailers. 22 Morrisville Chamber of Commerce
