Peace Raleigh Apartments + Publix

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.

Confidential Transit Oriented Development

Cline Design partnered with their long-time client, a reputable developer with projects across the southeast, to imagine a TOD that would activate a three-block area in Uptown Charlotte, provide a new home for its large corporate anchor tenant and welcome visitors to the Queen City.  The amenity-rich, 31-story towers’ exterior was thoughtfully designed to integrate into the context of its surroundings and enveloped in glass providing natural light and unobstructed views for its office tenants, hotel guests, and retail patrons.  At its base, the TOD boasts a 57,300 sq. ft. bus transfer station neighbored by over 12,000 sq. ft. of retail, a 3,000 sq. ft. hotel lobby and 1,700 sq. ft. office lobby.  The 8th floor provides an attractive pavilion, outdoor courtyard with breathtaking views for its office users and hotel guests, and a double-height concourse providing linkage from the office to the hotel.  The tower will once again transform the skyline of the ever-growing Queen city and provide a live, work, play outlet for this bustling city.
