This is the same site as the 522 S Harrington apartment submittal. I guess they figure this area is hotter than just some bland-a%% stick apartments and retained Raleigh Architecture to keep on the theme of modernist in this area (third project with at least a touch of modernism in it).

Based on what the article says, the developers actually listened to residents and are planning to deliver something that is relatively aesthetic, modern, non-cookie cutter, and constructed with quality material.

Beautiful interior renderings, but I'm really curious to see what the outside of the building looks like.  Most modern stuff in the city is 2-3 stories.  With this being 5-6,  I wonder how they approach the the proportions and angles.  Nothing on the Raleigh Architecture Co.'s website above 2 floors.

Exterior rendering from their website.  I guess okay looking design.  But definitely not the colors I would have gone with.

Looks like a bland assortment of stacked boxes.

Can't really tell if they're sticking with the original idea for some retail....

Yes, looks like the 'open to below' areas on the "First Floor" (Harrington Street Level) match up with the retail spaces on the lower level (West Street Level).

Wait...this project is stretching along West all the way to Cabarrus?

Also, for those who didn't read my post in the History thread, Matt Tomasulo has offered to buy and move the two 100 year old cottages on this sight but council will have to approve a sale to Preservation NC first of two City owned lots. Council already voted it down on a split vote once. It's on the January agenda again. The linked article explain who voted against it and why. If you feel like it's a worthy companion project, I encourage you to contact council and let them know your thoughts.
