We’ve only got one legitimate new building project to look at this week, but thankfully it’s something pretty exciting: a brand-new, five-story parking deck on NC State’s Campus. Our only hope is that the traffic generated by this breathtaking subject matter doesn’t crash the website.
Owned by the City of Raleigh, the 99,217 square-foot five-story deck will be located at 2411 Research Drive, near the ABB Corporate Research building. The deck will be built by Danis Construction Company for $2,850,000.
Danis Construction is also handling the $8.9 million, 104,020 square-foot Center for Technology and Innovation on Centennial Campus.
If that was all we had to talk about, this would go down on record as the shortest Development Beat I’ve ever posted. Considering it’s also coming a few hours later than usual, that’d be doubly embarrassing. Fortunately, some retaining wall permits were issued for a spot on Glenwood Avenue out in Brier Creek.
Any regular reader is familiar with our theory that new building permits follow extensive retaining wall projects just as sure as spring follows the winter. The project in question here is located out at 10200 Glenwood Avenue, next to the Alexander Place shopping center, home to a Wal-Mart, that, incidentally, received renovation permits just last week.
The retaining wall work is for a planned multifamily development that would contain a maximum of 288 units. The rezoning case that paved the way for this development, was recommended for approval in the November 2014 by the local Citizens Advisory Council. A public hearing was held in January 2015.
The apartments are, naturally, being developed by Davis Development, and built by Delta Development. The owners of the adjacent Alexander Place Shopping Center are DDR. Don’t feel bad if you get them confused, because I did in the original version of this post.
OK so that was still a little shorter than usual, but we’ve got a few good things coming up this week, including a look at what the Planning Commission’s been up to and an update on the Hillsborough Street Revitalization project.
