Permit Party is a newish feature that combines our former “New Building Report” and “Renovation Roundup” columns into one. 

It’s like Déjà Vu all over again. In our last edition of “Development Beat: Permit Party,” published in mid-November, the priciest commercial construction project we looked at was a new, $6.675 million new five story, 119,200 square-foot addition to the Public Storage facility at 1400 Capital Boulevard. In the three week period since that column ran, the largest commercial renovation permit issued in Raleigh was for … $6.8 million in renovations at that same Public Storage Facility. McCrory Construction is handling both projects.

Development Beat: Cameron Village’s Newest Apartments

So you probably thought Cameron Village had enough apartment complexes by now, right? Wrong. There’s been something like 45* new apartment complexes put up in and around the Cameron Village area in the last ten years, but it appears the appetite for downtown-adjacent, overpriced apartment living in Raleigh is insatiable. We have to admit: it would be pretty great to have a Harris Teeter, a Chick-fil-A, a Goodberry’s and a Fresh Market all within walking distance, but still, how many more residential units can that area withstand? The answer, according to Texas-based developer The Leon Capital Group, appears to be “at least 201 more.”
