The Department of City Planning/the Urban Design Center will be hosting its 3rd Annual Downtown Raleigh Home Tour this Saturday. Held during the same weekend as Artsplosure, the tour (which is self-guided) is intended to show off the great variety of options available in downtown housing. The tour takes you through historic properties, single family homes, rentals, and luxury condos.
Anyone who takes the tour can expect to see not only the grand opening of the Plaza (RBC) Condominium sales model, but also Carlton Place Apartments, Founder’s Row, The Dawson, Bloomsbury Estates, a few rehab’d historic homes, the Residences at Quorum, West at North, the plans for the redevelopment of Blount Street, Village at Pilot Mill, 712 Tucker, 630 North, and a handful of other apartments, homes, and condos. For the full map, check out the website at www.raleighdowntownliving.com.
It is a self guided (and sometimes walking) tour but now that Raleigh has rickshaws you can just grab a ride with one of them! Tickets are $10 and “proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Department’s Designing as 21st Century City lecture series. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Support Circles Program of the Plan to End Homelessness, the joint City of Raleigh, Wake County, Triangle United Way, and Wake Continuum of Care effort aimed at ending homelessness in Raleigh and Wake County.”
