CLARIFYING REMARKS: This section includes Sunset .l:lills which is highly restricted and
zoned and is one of the best residential sections in the city. In the eastern part or the
section is "West Mar.1tet Terracen which is not as desirable as Sunset Hills but has the ad14 .

vantage 0£ joining 11Sunset Hills", the only disadvantage being that it is older and property
values are not as high as in "Sunset Hills•. North of .trriendly lioad is as yet undevelope<l
to a certain extent. North Carolina State College ror nomen adjoins this section on the
Southeast and is not considered as detrimental but the contrary.

Uorporation just prior to the depression, and houses being on the market ror saJ.e were
let"t on the hands of the developers. They have been rented since that time. l:louses
are fairly modern and attractive, and sales demand is increasing at this time. It has
the possibility of a good future.

CLARIFYING REMARKS: Chier desirable feature of this area is the tact that it is the ma.in
artery leading from sections A-1 to A-2. There are only about a dozen dwellings in the
area. It is also close to main business district. Future development will probably
not lower the desirability of the section, and there is a probability tba.t its desirability will be increased.

CLARIFYING REMARKS: On the western side ot' this area is that part just north of Gaston st.
indicated as undeveloped are located b houses occupied by negroes. However, there is very
little it" a:ny likelihood of any increase in negro population in this area. Future development will eventually drive the negroes out. New construction is in the Westerwood subdivision in the northern part of the area. Properties adjoining industrial and commercial
development along railroad track is somewhat adverse:cy affected by this condition.
