Residential Planned For Millbank

A new residential development project is coming to Millbank Road, near downtown Raleigh. Located inside the beltline and just minutes from the last remaining K&W in Raleigh, the Millbank Collection will include 18 townhomes and 3 single-family homes. The community is being built by Redeeming Development Group (RDG) and was designed by Clearscapes. In a shocking turn of events, both the developer and architect on this project are actually located in Raleigh.

According to the Millbank Collection website, the residences will include high-end features such as “vaulted ceilings, quartz countertops, gourmet kitchens, hardwood floors, 1-car garages” and much more.

We did some investigative journalism and uncovered never-before-seen floor plans for the residences, located at 2308 Euston Street.

We have also obtained broadcast rights to a video about the project.

The Millbank Collection has homes starting in the high $300,000’s and will be starting pre-sales soon. Interested parties can get on the priority list by visiting We’ll keep an eye on this project as it continues to develop.

Goodbye, Cameron Village K&W

The K&W Cafeteria in Cameron Village has closed permanently. Rumors of this horrible news started last week on Twitter.

We decided to launch a thorough investigation that consisted of driving to K&W and reading the sign on the front door (#journalism).

The N&O reported that, in addition to the Cameron Village location, three other K&W locations in NC have closed. There are now 18 K&W locations. Fortunately, the K&W at 3620 Bastion Lane (near WakeMed and Raleigh Country Club) is still alive and well. While we will miss the Cameron Village K&W, we’ve come to grips with the reality that we’ll just have to drive 10 minutes down the road to the other location.

Peace Publix Opens

The long-awaited Publix on Peace Street is now open. We have not received any reports of massive crowds lining up outside the store before sunrise. We assume this is due to the current COVID-19 restrictions on mass gatherings.

As previously reported, the Publix building is part of Phase 1 of Kane’s Smoky Hollow development. More apartments, office space, and retail will open in the coming phases. We recently obtained exclusive footage of Smoky Hollow that we will now share for the first time ever on ITB Insider.

Idle Hour Coffee Open On Oberlin

A new coffee shop has opened near the corner of Oberlin and Fairview. Idle Hour Coffee was founded in 2018 and, according to their website, offers baked goods, sandwiches, tea, and “damn fine coffee.”

Bul Box Coming To North Hills

We have learned from an exclusive e-mail press release that Bul Box will be opening in North Hills. The restaurant, which serves Asian cuisine, is projected to open in the fall of 2020 next to lululemon. The North Hills location will be mainly a to-go place with several outdoor tables.

Bul Box opened its first location in Raleigh at Transfer Company Food Hall. The restaurant’s second location opened in Morrisville last month.

New Bar Planned For Glenwood South

Plans have been filed for a new bar concept in the former home of Devolve Moto on Glenwood Avenue. An administrative site review plan calls for renovation of the space at 304 Glenwood into a new bar, and for the teardown of the existing structure at 306 Glenwood to make way for a new outdoor bar/deck space. 

The property at 304 Glenwood was first built in 1940, while the older warehouse-style structure at 306 Glenwood has been around for more than 100 years. It was most recently home to Vickers & Ruth Plumbing Company. 

The site review plans don’t offer much information on the type or character of the new bar, although we imagine the outdoor patio will be a big hit.

Longleaf Swine Moving To Former Home of Oakwood Café

Longleaf Swine BBQ recently announced their plans to move into the former home of Oakwood Café. They had originally planned to open their whole hog barbecue and smoked meats restaurant in a space at Transfer Company Food Hall. This will be their first brick and mortar location.

According to their Instagram post, they’ll be doing pop-up and pre-opening events while they work to get things up and running.

Seaboard Wine Red Tag Deal

Our friends at Seaboard Wine are now offering their Thrifty Thursday deal every day of the week. They just added more wines to their Red Tag sale, which includes over 150 wines from around the world. Their temporary store hours are 12pm to 6 pm, seven days a week.

Overflowing Hands

If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity during COVID, Overflowing Hands and Rocky Top Catering are in need of folks who can help donate/deliver meals to underprivileged children at over 50 sites in Wake County. The organization has distributed over 300,000 meals and community support is still needed. Here is the link to donate, or sign up to volunteer:
