Pic of the Week
This is a shot of 224 (left) and 222 (right) Fayetteville Street. 224 Fayetteville Street, or the Lewis-Woodard Building, has a fresh new front door. This is a huge contrast to the white marble, colder feeling version it had before. You can see the previous version in this April 2015 Google streetview. A little background […]
The latest addition to Christ Church is starting to really take shape these days. You’ve got to hand it to them for trying to make their newest expansion along Edenton Street match the historic building. They have an album of construction photos on their Flickr page.
After years of being empty, the old Esso gas station on Hillsborough Street now has life in it. Dram and Draught, a whiskey and cocktail bar, is now open and adds some neighborhood bar vibes to this area of downtown Raleigh.

The kiosk will have the ticketing/information window, the office for the crew and security. […]
Construction site for the future Residence Inn. The future Residence Inn is showing a few floors of progress here on Salisbury Street. The nine-story hotel comes after years of delays and changes so it’s great to see this moving.
