Development Beat: Historic Overlay

Rezoning case Z-2-16 would designate the Glenwood-Brooklyn neighborhood in central Raleigh as a Historic Overlay District. Located off Glenwood Avenue near Fred Fletcher Park, the neighborhood traces its roots back to the early 20th century.

Development Beat: Week of January 18

Friday, January, 22, 2016

In October of last year, we wrote an extended Teardown Tuesday post about the demolition of the former William Cozart furniture manufacturing company. Located at 319 West Street in downtown Raleigh's warehouse district and a stone's throw from the new Union Station and the Dillon Supply Warehouse redevelopment, the former structure was first built in 1920. Back then, it was home to the Southern School Supply Company. Five months later, the demolition is pretty much finished and a new site plan has been filed for its replacement: HQ Raleigh. As we wrote in October, the downtown business incubator purchased the property at 319 West for $900,000 on February 4, 2015.
