Kane developed the old mall at Raleigh North Hills into a dense multi-block mixed-use district, and sees the PRT as a fun way to get around.

From News 14:

"As part of the plan, PRT rail would go over Six Forks Road, with possible future connections to hospitals, neighborhoods, and even mass transit."

News 14 has the story, complete with video.
