Renovations For Glenwood Village HT

The grocery store wars have escalated. In what some consider a direct retaliation against the new Wegmans, the Glenwood Village Harris Teeter will undergo significant renovations. Based on preliminary construction documents, it appears that the renovations will be extensive.

Work will include a new canopy, concrete work, interior demolition, new flooring, painting, renovations to the loading dock, and extensive HVAC and electrical repairs. At this time, we are unable to confirm the existence of an express lane for La Croix, White Claw, and Elmo pouches.

Work is expected to begin in January 2020 and finish 16 weeks later. The work will take place overnight, allowing the store to remain open during the renovations. You can view plans for the project online, which is taking bids until November 13.

Our only hope is that they add some sort of educational programming related to proper shopping cart return etiquette.

Condos And Retail Planned For Peace Street

A mixed-use development with 24 condos and 1,500 square feet of retail is planned for the corner of Peace Street and Boylan Ave. Back in 2017, we reported that the property at 615 W Peace Street was slated to be a boutique hotel. We don’t know why those plans fell through, but they did provide some entertaining debate between the City Council and the hotel developers over what the definition of a rooftop was. MJM Group was hoping to open their hotel by 2020.

None of that matters anymore. Lock7, a D.C. developer, announced the following on social media last month:

“Lock7 is headed down #South! We’re excited to announce our expansion into the #Raleigh, NC market with the acquisition of 615 W Peace Street. The development, located right off of Glenwood Avenue, is planned to offer 24 units and over 1,500 sq ft of retail space.”

It seems that our friends at New City Design will be working on the project, as they posted about it on Instagram as well. The project should begin construction in 2020 and is expected to be finished in 2021.

Seaboard Wine Tasting: Italian Tour 11/9

Our friends at Seaboard Wine at HighPark Village are hosting a free wine tasting this Saturday. Manuel Magnani and Elia Gentili from Sunrise Wine Importers will be pouring a delicious selection of wines from Italy. Stop by from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm, sample some great wines and meet two of the nicest gentlemen (and best dressed) in the business!

Seaboard Wine also announced their 23rd Annual Champagne Tasting, which will be held on December 4th and 5th from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm or 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. They will be sampling Champagne and sparkling wines from around the world. Admission is $39 per person. Visit their Eventbrite to reserve your date and time.

Friday, November 8th – there are ONLY TWO bar seats left for the Cru Beaujolais class. Call the store at 919-831-0850 for reservations.

The Nash Condos Coming To Nash Square

An upscale condominium project overlooking Nash Square in downtown Raleigh will begin construction next year. The Nash will have more than 100 homes as part of the Nexus mixed-use development that’s being built at the former site of The News & Observer.

Nexus will include office, residential, hotel, restaurant, retail and entertainment spaces surrounding a plaza and overlooking Nash Square.

The Nash will offer a variety of floorplans, ranging from one bedroom homes to penthouse suites, and will feature hotel-style amenities, including concierge services, that cater to urban lifestyles.

The architect for The Nash is Elkus Manfredi out of Boston. Brasfield & Gorrie will serve as the general contractor. Dogwood Properties has been selected to handle sales and marketing for the condominium project. For more information visit

“The Nash is reimagining what it means to live in Downtown Raleigh,” said Theo Highsmith, a principal at Dogwood Properties. “The amazing location and sophisticated amenities are an unbeatable combination that will appeal to longtime Raleigh residents and newcomers alike who want to enjoy the perks of downtown living without sacrificing their lifestyle.”

A Look At Wine & Design At Union Station

Wine & Design showed off their new studio space at Raleigh’s Union Station. From the exclusive video that we obtained via Instagram, we can report the existence of a popcorn machine, easels (for painting), paint, and an incredible view.

The 2,700 square foot Union Station location (managed by our good friends at York Properties) is the new home of both their corporate headquarters and an expanded retail event space. They’re now taking reservations for November pARTies.


The Enclave At MLK

A new apartment project is planned for 2020 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Developed by AD3, the Enclave at MLK will consist of 82 one- and two-bedroom “contemporary flats that are a 3-wood from Raleigh Country Club, a quick bike ride from Wake Med, and a relaxing GoRaleigh commute from downtown.”

Those 82 units will be spread across eight three-story buildings on the vacant 8+ acre site. The developer is promising “floor-to-ceiling windows and open floor plans…custom kitchens and living rooms…private balconies…spa-like master baths with standup fully tiled showers and freestanding tubs.” The website also lists covered basement parking with electric car charging stations, bike storage, a dog wash station, and a fenced pet park.

The Enclave looks to be coming in mid-2021 with pre-sales beginning in the first quarter of 2020.


Updates On The Wade

We can now confirm that the final grading and landscaping work is being done at The Wade, our favorite condo project and the future home of ITBlake the intern. We’ve been meaning to acquire a drone, but haven’t had the time to take all the classes and learn the FAA rules. However, we were able to get this shot by attaching ITBlake to a crane and then airlifting that crane onto the top of The Wade (he’s fine). Contact Beacon Street Development for more information.

Crabtree Food Court Upgrades

More changes are in store for Crabtree Valley Mall’s food court to allow for more seating. This seems like an odd choice, given that we can count on one hand the number of times there hasn’t been available seating in the food court.

The project will include new floor and wall finishes, along with ceiling, skylight, and lighting improvements in the general food court area. Work on the food court’s aesthetic upgrade will likely begin early next year, and is expected to wrap up by the end of Summer 2020. Sadly, we have not heard of any plans to add a Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream Parlor.
