Pic of the Week
Corner of West and Lenoir, December 2016 The service station at the corner of West and Lenoir Street is shown above. Plans for a restaurant are in place for this building in an area that will rapidly change in the next few years. There will be apartments across West street, currently under construction townhomes across […]
Corner of Morgan and Blount Streets, November 2016 Marbles has tentative plans for an “urban courtyard” for the corner of Morgan and Blount Streets. The service station that currently sits there would be demolished for the expansion of the kids museum. The Raleigh Public Record has an in-depth look at the plans for this section […]
Demolition is taking place at the corner of Wilmington and Martin Streets, the former site of the future Edison Office tower. I say “former” tower because earlier this year, Highwoods Properties has acquired the parcel from the past developer. No plans are public yet for what the new owners might do with it. When I […]

To my knowledge this is the second one after the widely popular install of the one on Hargett Street outside of The Raleigh Times. There will also be more corrals installed according to […]
Bike parking at Citrix along Hargett Street. While private, this is probably the peak of bicycle parking in downtown Raleigh.
Raleigh’s giant copper acorn has a new home. It was moved from Moore Square to the corner of South and Salisbury Street. I imagine the reason is to clear the way for the impending redesign of Moore Square. The construction shown in the photo above is the new Residence Inn on Salisbury Street.
Fiber is indeed coming as Google’s ad campaign continues on. It’s no secret now that the building at 518 West Jones Street will be home to the area’s Google Fiber offices. Or maybe showroom? Storage room? Who knows. Either way, Google has been very hush about the work that’s taken place in Glenwood South and […]
More like Render of the Week. Above is the rendering for Hargett Place, a group of 19 townhomes for East Hargett Street. I’m into this project because of the high-quality (perceived anyway) as well as unique townhome design shown in these renderings. This is a housing type that I think is hugely lacking around downtown […]
