What is your “dream” lifestyle? Do you want to live where you can walk to exclusive shops and restaurants or call for room service from your penthouse at 2 a.m.? How about arriving home to have the chauffeur open your car door(s) and delivery packages to your residence? Would you enjoy a relaxing massage steps away at the world class spa? Perhaps you would ring for the housekeeper to visit your home to freshen up for unexpected guests? Soon you will be able to do all of this and more from your new high rise condo at the soaring new Westin Soleil Center in Raleigh ’s fast growing “uptown” area of Crabtree Valley .
The Westin Hotel will provide luxury hotel accommodations including a conference center, full service spa, restaurant and lounge. The hotel will consist of 290 rooms starting on the 9th floor. .
The Soleil Center ’s high rise luxury residences begin on the 20th floor and rise to the 41st floor of this 43 story building. Floors 20-33 consist of 1/3 floor residences which range from 1888 heated square feet to 2286 heated square feet all have a private terrace to enjoy the view. Floors 34-37 are comprised of the ½ floor residences with heated square footage starting at 3000 square feet with one or two private terraces. The top 4 floors consist of full floor penthouses with 6700 heated square feet and an additional 349 square feet in 3 terraces.
The hotel guest lobby, roof top terrace garden, signature restaurant and lounge are on the 7th floor. The Heavenly Spa by Westin will be on the 8th floor and indoor pool and Reebok Powered fitness center are located on floor 17. Residents will have private elevators, private entry lobby and private concierge to ensure that they will never have to mingle with hotel guests/locals unless they choose to.
The view is only the beginning of the attraction to living like a Hollywood star at the Westin Soleil. Residents will enjoy Raleigh ’s ever changing sky line views. The night time “light show” will get much more dramatic and closer to home as the expanding Crabtree Valley Mall and two new mega lifestyle centers merge and develop. The Crabtree Creek greenway sprawls at the foot of the glass Soleil Center giving nature the perfect place as the new landscape of Raleigh ’s Uptown emerges. Residents can enjoy bike rides and jogging in a “City in the Park” setting.
Crabtree Valley Mall has been the most visited mall in the Triangle for decades. The mall is located next door to the new Soleil Center and is the most successful shopping center in the entire Triangle region. Now the Triangle’s favorite mall will be expanding by adding 3 new restaurants….McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and the Brio Tuscan Grille. Expansion of Crabtree is underway with a newly renovated Belks. Uptown is fast becoming the place to be and be seen in the Triangle.
Crabtree Creek will be developed by Weingarten of Houston . This is a new high end Lifestyle center planned for the site behind Crabtree Valley Mall where the old Steak and Ale once stood. These new exclusive shops are projected to be a 250 million dollar project that will include exclusive retail, apartments, and class “A” office space. A second new blockbuster expansion, The Shoppes at Crabtree, is planned by York of Atlanta on and around Kidd’s Hill. The York site has planned 750 new high end residences, 160,000 square feet of additional retail shopping, trendy restaurants and hotel. Make a note that Highwood’s is gaining over 1 million square feet of office space in this area. Regions Bank has also moved to the Uptown area – you can expect many executives will be “steps” away from the office verse sitting in traffic on 540, 440 or (heaven forbid) Capitol Blvd!
This Northwest Raleigh location has always been an excellent spot for real estate appreciation. Top area schools, minutes to the airport, hospitals, Research Triangle Park and major highways are among the area’s long term attractions. Now add the convenience of being minutes from your favorite star’s performance or a hockey game at the RBC Center . I have heard that all the visiting stars will be staying at the Westin Soleil and they too will have their own private entrance to avoid the paparazzi.
If you’ve never considered going “vertical” with your housing needs – now may be the time to take this 21st century housing trend seriously. The Raleigh Chamber of Commerce’s upcoming year end meeting and nearly every seminar circuit focuses on the Baby Boomers” and lifestyle changes resulting from their retirement. Raleigh and Cary constantly win national acclaim as the best of the best cities to work, play and live. So the debut of Raleigh ’s new Uptown is right on cue. Developers from around the country are reading the signs that point to Raleigh ’s future and are fast making the vision of a lifestyle that was once only a dream into a sure reality. The Soleil will attract buyers and real estate speculators from around the world. Even the locals are investing in the momentum of this exciting location.
