Gregg Museum of Art and Design

If it's been a while since you were here, be sure to stop by
these hot new spots.
Gregg Museum of Art & Design
Transforming the North Carolina State University chancellor's residence into the Gregg Museum of Art
& Design, this $9.8-million project resulted in a freestanding, LEED Silver-certified facility that includes
the 1927 residence, a 15,000-plus square foot contemporary addition and various outdoor spaces.
Opened in 2017, Gregg Museum features a permanent collection of 35,000+ objects available for
research and enjoyment (including textiles, ceramics, photography and Native American/tribal art) and
an ongoing series of exhibitions and programs, making it one of the Southeast's cultural treasures.
Hard hats off to all of the workers who made this transportation masterpiece a wonderful reality. Now
the downtown districts have a world-class transportation hub, a central location to serve as a multimodal transit center connecting riders to other forms of transit for many years into the future.
Fuquay-Varina Arts Center
A new arts center is breathing life into the
Hudson-Belk Department Store on the
corner of E. Vance St. and S. Fuquay Ave., in
Fuquay-Varina. The project also includes new
construction running along S. Fuquay Ave.
The renovated portion has classrooms, a digital
lab, paint and dance studios, an art gallery, an
administrative suite and performance support
areas. The new construction features a 300-seat
theatre. The goal is to blend the old and new to
create a highly flexible space, usable for many
purposes and events.
Transfer Co. Olde East
Nearly 100 years after the building's 1926
construction, the old Carolina Coach Garage &
Shop is set to be the hot new space in Raleigh's
historic Olde East neighborhood. Envisioned
as a celebration of local food, knowledge and
community, developers are working to make
renovations and secure tenants for this
A peek at the early tenants list shows Boulted
Bread, Jubala Coffee, Videri Chocolate Factory
and Che Empanadas. Look for these and more
coming soon to 500 E. Davie St.
The station provides a much-needed new stop for Amtrak's Piedmont, Carolinian and Silver Star routes.
Train service will transition to the new station as work is completed.
Morgan Street Food Hall & Market
Please don't call it a food court. This new lifestyle concept is the ideal blend of eateries and food
retailers. Here your family or group of friends can all order something different and still dine together
in the shared seating area.
Located in downtown Raleigh's Warehouse District and adjacent to the new Union Station, the Food
Hall is an impressive 20,000-square-foot venue that brings to life the vision of high-quality, chef-driven
specialty foods with a wide range of diversity.
