The first Raleigh bikeshare system, Citrix Cycle, is rolling out with stations being installed in multiple locations. Above, the station for GoRaleigh Station across from Moore Square is in place, minus the bicycles of course. The last update I heard is that the system should be available for use before the end of the year.
See more about the system including the full map of stations over at Citrix Cycle.
From the outside, Guest House Raleigh on Bloodworth Street is looking real fresh. It should be any day now that they start taking bookings. Check them out at guesthouseraleigh.com
More of a rendering or cross-section this week. As I was looking through the RUSbus grant application, I noticed this diagram of how the mixed-use project could look like. Now this isn’t set in stone by any means but I take it as what the planners have in mind including market-rate and affordable housing, hotel, office, and retail space. Being a transit hub as well, this may be the most mixed-use project in downtown Raleigh.

The newest owners of the 1850s mansion in Boylan Heights are making moves to turn it into a boutique hotel. Located at the edge of the neighborhood at Boylan and Mountford Avenue, the hotel is in a great location and offers a unique stay.
The owners are currently going through the rezoning process and if that goes as planned, renovation work will take place after that. What a great way to save some of Raleigh’s historic houses on the edge of downtown. I’m excited to see it finished one day.
Follow the progress and see some great photos of the interior on their Instagram page.
The building at 107 West Hargett Street is being partially demolished. Covered in detail here, we can see that the rear, one-story section has been removed and will now have a five-story building that incorporates the brick, street-facing building that sits on the same property.
I’m a big fan of this project and would love to see more reuses of older Raleigh while still adding density to our downtown.
The last time we checked in on FNB Tower, the crane had just showed up and things were getting started. Now, almost three months later it looks like the tower is making some real upward momentum with a floor being produced almost once per two weeks.
Next, we’ll have to take a look at how City Plaza looks and feels with all the properties around it being filled in. It’s exciting to see what will be Raleigh’s fourth tallest tower take shape.
For more frequent updates, the community is all over FNB Tower sharing photos from all different angles. Join us!
The Morgan Street Food Hall is now open! There are plenty of dining options for lunch and dinner throughout with a little retail on the side as well.
Make sure to check out the vendors on their website ahead of time to avoid getting stuck in the crowds when it’s busy. Lunch and dinner have been packed from what I hear and with the cool weather about to show up, the food hall is sure to be pretty lively.
The place looks great and is a far cry from the club/bars that used to pack this warehouse years ago. Kudos to the team behind it and I look forward to many visits!
We’re chatting about Morgan Street Food Hall on the DTRaleigh Community. Join us.
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.
