Around Town Park West: Growing Opportunities

T

he rapid growth of Morrisville is perhaps most evident in the southwestern portion of town, where the ongoing development of Park West Village has already made the intersection of Cary Parkway and Chapel Hill Road a destination for Triangle region shoppers. Anchor stores, boutiques, service businesses and restaurants began opening at the site in late 2011, but the shopping center’s official grand opening in June 2012 showcased just the beginning of what promises to be a desirable mixed-use community where people can live, work and play. Park West Village developer Casto owns and manages more than 100 retail and mixed-use properties in the Midwest, Southeast and Puerto Rico. Shannon Dixon, vice president of leasing and development for Casto’s Carolina operations, says that the Morrisville location in the heart of the Triangle was a perfect fit for this type of development. “Morrisville/West Cary has everything we would traditionally look for in a real estate market — excellent established daytime and business population, solid traffic counts, and projections for strong future growth,” she explained. Ultimately, Park West Village will include nearly half a million square feet of retail space, a state-of-the-art movie theater, a fitness center, 120,000 square feet of office space, and 275 residential units, creating a walkable

community with an urban feel. Traditional apartments and town homes are projected to open in early 2013, while the mixed-use area, combining upscale apartments with office and retail spaces, will likely come to fruition by mid 2014. Obvious benefits to the city include increased tax revenue and employment; additionally, fees associated with Park West have funded infrastructure improvements in town. On top of that, Dixon says it’s important to Casto to not only be part of the neighborhood, but to also be a good neighbor. “We want to make this project not only a place where people can live and shop, but a place where the community can gather for fun events like concerts and holiday programs,” she said. “We also want to give back to the community through our involvement with the Chamber and the Morrisville Foundation, as well as other community causes.”

Kramden Institute: A Decade of Diminishing the Digital Divide

F

ounded in 2003 by father and son team Mark and Ned Dibner, the not-for-profit Kramden Institute celebrates its 10th anniversary in June 2013. Although the size and scope of the organization has changed tremendously in 10 years, the mission is still the same: providing home computers to deserving students who otherwise couldn’t afford one. The idea to refurbish used computers and award them to economically disadvantaged honor-roll students originated with Ned Dibner, who was just 13 years old at the time. Kramden Institute — a name derived from the backwards spelling of the Dibner duo’s first names — was born when Mark reached out for donations of used machines that he and Ned could refurbish. They awarded 50 computer systems to students that first year, but that was just the beginning.

Thanks to a network of educational partners, corporate sponsors, individual benefactors and thousands of “geek” volunteers, the institute awarded its 10,000th computer in April 2012. Kramden has now supplied computers to students in more than half of the state’s 100 counties, including yearly donations of systems to families stationed at Fort Bragg. As Kramden’s

executive director, Michael Abensour, points out, the benefit to the students can’t be overstated. “A home computer is not just another appliance, but a gateway to greater opportunity and success,” he said. “It’s the first step in crossing the digital divide and helps a student build fundamental computer knowledge and literacy skills that are needed to thrive both in school and in the workforce.”
