Moore Square, January 2018 The renovation of Moore Square is very much underway with a lot of small shrubs and short trees being removed.

Raleigh Amtrak Station, October 2017 Happy New Year all! Shown above is a photo of the Raleigh Amtrak Station in October 2017.

A crane has shown up at the site of The Metropolitan. The parking deck is being put together and foundation work has begun. It’s great to see the site being rebuilt after the fire in March of this year. The area nearby is undergoing a lot of change so it’s nice to see planned residential […]

10 Arros Townhomes, October 2017 Here are the 10 Arros townhomes being built along New Bern Avenue. With all 10 “arros” basically built up, you can get a sense of their presence onto the street. It’s a nice change from the empty parking lot, wide openness to a more comfortable, urban-fringe kind of presence. I […]

These townhouses along Chavis Way are starting to rise up. This project, called The Ware, is located next to Transfer Company, a renovation of Stone’s Warehouse into a food hall and grocery. In addition to the photo, I have a surround shot embedded below. This is the corner of Chavis Way and Davie Street. If […]
