Where in the heck does Indy get its maps or its map makers? The one included with this article is atrociously put together and inflammatory. The map includes numerous buildings that are currently standing as "proposed" (many of which have nothing to do with the chancellor) and cuts off a poorly-drawn Main Campus Dr to make it appear as if the new home necessitates blazing roads through a serene forest. Take a gander at Google Maps and you’ll see the real environment the new mansion is being built in. Even though the article would like readers to think this area is currently a woodland paradise, the map and article also omit the gargantuan Lonnie Pool golf course right across the street (sad, but nothing we can do about that one now), the privately owned townhomes on the other side of Lake Raleigh, Centennial Campus Middle school that’s less than ¼ mi down the road, the oh-so-simple fact that all of this part of Centennial Campus anyway, and that it’s so close to I-40 that you could spit into traffic. So keeping in mind the dozen other things currently under construction on Centennial, this is a problem how? Besides, if you want a great slice of nature in this area of Raleigh why not trot on down the road to Lake Johnson? Or was it just incontinent to mention that Lake Johnson is less than 4 miles away?
