Metal framing, including additional floors, are taking shape over at the Lumsden Bros. Building on West Hargett Street. The developers behind this project have done a great job in preserving the sidewalk character of the building while completely modernizing the interior and adding more density to the area.
Winter 2019 has been good to the Rogers house at its newest home along East Street. An extension, side project, something from the owners of nearby Guest House Raleigh, Rogers Cottage, as it will be called, may be incorporated into the boutique hotel’s offerings soon.
Stay tuned to their Instagram for more.
The FNB Tower continues to rise along Fayetteville Street. The Wilmington Street side has a nice dramatic view from the southeast as seen above.
The mixed-use tower will bring over 200 apartments to an area that’s more dominated by 9-to-5ers than anything else so it’s nice to see that mix.
FNB Tower is also the last new development to take place on Fayetteville Street without demolition. I’m hoping this brings eyes to the southern end of Fayetteville where two lonely surface parking lots, zoned for a maximum of 40-story buildings, sit completely under-valued.
Let’s get Fayetteville Street extended one more block!
The Raleigh Architecture Company has set up over on Saunders Street and their renovation is basically wrapped up. It’s looking really good too. See the before pic below.
Saunders Street will be really important in the coming years as more townhomes are built nearby and connections between downtown and Dix Park come together. Enjoy the new digs guys!
One Glenwood, the first tower of Bloc 83, is really starting to wrap up along Glenwood Avenue. The sidewalks are basically open and the lobbies are mostly finished. All that’s needed is some furniture.
Once the tenants have their spaces ready, the building should really start adding activity to the southern end of Glenwood South. Next to watch is the Origin Hotel right across Morgan Street.
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
