Every Spring, the Downtown Raleigh Alliance releases their “State of” report and it’s full of data goodness about our city’s core. If you want to dive into it, go here.
Having seen a few of these, there are some stats that I go for each year and I wanted to put them down here for Part 1.
We’re still a government town and the figure below shows the latest breakdown of employment by sector.
Downtown Raleigh has the densest office market in the Triangle. The count of urban workers is now at 47,000 and is projected to be at 56,500 by 2030.
Compared to last year:
- Government went up 1%
- Tech is up almost 2%
- Accomodation and Food Services is up 1%
The rest more or less went down a percentage point.
There are now 8,500 residents living in downtown Raleigh and we’re projected to hit 10,000 by 2022. The occupancy rate is also at 95%, up one over last year so we’re ready to absorb more units.

And finally, here’s the big list of developments from the report showing completed, under construction, and planned projects in downtown Raleigh.
