Construction is moving along over at Davie Street Presbyterian Church. The new addition will add a lot more space to the historic church at the corner of Davie and Person. See more about the plans here. Come discuss this project and others on the downtown Raleigh Community.

Photo by xtremetoonz The site of The Fairweather condos has been cleared at the end of Harrington Street. After the Rogers House move in June, this makes the site ready for construction of the 45 condo units. The view should be pretty nice!


The Saint Townhomes Take Shape and Elevate

The Saint townhomes. July 2018. It’s been almost a year since we checked in on the townhomes along St. Mary’s Street, The Saint, and these units are coming along nicely.
