Crash of the Resident Wave, The Link Apartments Dig in on West Street (3/10)

The Link Apartments construction site
This is part 3 of a 10 post series, rolled out all week, on residential projects in downtown Raleigh. Go here to see all the posts so far.

It’s just a hole right now but not for long. The Link Apartments will bring 200 units between West and Harrington Streets along the north side of Jones Street. For the last few years, there have always been multiple residential projects under construction in Glenwood South. Unique about The Link, they brings options to the east side of the district.

What was once called Powerhouse Plaza, plans for an 11-story mixed-use tower were changed to meet the huge demand for rentals and that’s where we are today.

  1. Glad to see this project moving forward. While I would have loved the 11-story version, this building fits nicely into the existing fabric and it is neither overwhelming, nor underwhelming. Drove by this morning on the way to work and saw the progress. Can’t wait to see this finished.

    Naturally, I am anxious to see what is planned for the former bus station site. I am not optimistic for something much larger than Link, but I will take anything above 5 floors.

  2. Considering Ted Reynolds owns the former Greyhound site, which is right across the st from Quorum Center, I would imagine he will build a tower much taller than 5 floors. Fingers crossed!

  3. Amen to that, Jake Anthony! I would love to see at least the last incarnation of The Hillsborough materialize at that site. 23 floors is not out of scale when compared to Quorum Center, especially on that parcel. However, I need to remain realistic. Maybe something between 10 and 15 floors is more feasible… I’ll take that :)
