Hello, thanks for stopping by today. Just a quick review of current real estate speak for “city dwellers”.
Downtown is the place for night time action. The population of Raleigh is expected to “double” in the next three years. Raleigh was also voted the best place for young professional singles (see link). If you want to live in a high rise residence within walking distance to restaurants, the gym, and the best hang outs in town, there’s no better than South Glenwood. If you do buy in this fast pace area on a slow night just sit by your window and watch the skyline change.
Midtown is the Kane Residential development and explosion of the old North Hills Mall area into a city walk of restaurants, shops, theaters, office, hotel, and residences. We can all see the demolition of the bank and the old Bennigans and massive dirt banks of land waiting for the new landscape. North Hills has even expanded inside the beltline to the new Ramblewood community that features a community of town homes ranging from 2300 – 4500 square feet with garages, “stacked flats” from 1150 to 2000 square feet and garden home residences. These homes are a quarter mile walk to all the action at Midtown. Rablewood features brick exteriors, private gardens, all the interior perks of granite, stainless and hardwood flooring plus designer landscaping featuring tree lined walkways and picturesque sidewalks. We are looking forward to more of Kane’s Midtown.
Do you know the definition of “Uptown” as it applies to Raleigh? I described the tip of the ice berg with the building of two huge “lifestyle” centers near Crabtree Valley in a recent blog entry highlighting the Soleil Center . This is just the beginning of a population increase that will boast some of the most exclusive addresses in the Triangle. From luxury high rise residents to the gorgeous Carriage homes at Glenlake (see an upcoming blog devoted exclusively to Glenlake) – and get ready to see some explosive growth in the Crabtree Valley area. That reminds me, I have to go shopping! Call me soon!
