Thursday, July 14, 2016

For those of you who've been reading all week: don't worry, the dopey, alliterative day-of-the-week titles end today. Tomorrow we're running the usual Renovation Roundup, which I briefly considered titling "Fix-Up Friday." For those of you who've been reading for even longer (thanks!) you might be surprised to learn that today's subject is *not* another new self-storage facility being planed for Raleigh. Instead, it's another small apartment complex from the Sambrick Companies, which in March began developing the new Magnolia Groves apartment complex on Louisburg Road in North Raleigh. As we reported back in March, Sambrick is a commercial realty firm with a construction division, which meant they both owned the land on which Magnolia Groves was being developed and were overseeing the actual construction of it as well.
