The new Peace Raleigh Apartments, just blocks away from Seaboard Station, are more than a mixed-use project serving a fast-growing population in a booming metropolis. It’s a project that represents building community and addressing its most basic needs by offering the area its first downtown grocer. It’s a story of delivering a complex project in a uniquely situated site requiring innovative design solutions for site-specific challenges.
The Peace development is the new Northern Gateway to Downtown Raleigh and is leading the way for development in the area. It is reactivating the formerly vacant, deteriorating neighborhood at the corner of Peace and West by offering a place for people to live, work and play. Its 55,000 sq. ft. of retail is anchored by Downtown Raleigh’s first grocery store, remedying the food desert issues faced by surrounding areas’ residents and workforce. The public plaza on Peace Street serves as a community gathering space where residents and shoppers can enjoy the buzz of the street, relax in one of the many seating areas or catch up with friends after a long day at work. The art installation on West street offers an appealing backdrop to visitors of Downtown.
