This project is looking more and more likely, with approved zoning and preliminary plans announced.  The original part of the Creamery building as well as the 1940ish expansion will remain.

I'll take 20 and 32. Having these buildings tower over Glenwood South will have a huge impact.

The residential tower would go great on any block in downtown. I wish more of these planned towers were designed like this.

This looks like a great project. Good activation on the ground floor and it is great that they are keeping the Creamery Building.

My only complaint is how prominent the parking portion will be.

It would be ideal if developers plan more underground parking structures with these downtown developments. Expensive land is more suited to residential or commercial, rather than parking.

With all of this new residential and commercial space, including hotel rooms, being developed in and around Glenwood South, that area will become very dense in the coming years. It's exciting to think about what's in store for Raleigh's core. The Madison, the Creamery, Bloc83, and Smoky Hollow projects are turning this into one hell of an urban destination.

I believe that city leaders and developers have been taking note of where the gaps in the skyline exist from all vantage points, and are now finally aiming to properly build out that impressive skyline.

The above ground parking elevates the residential section above the train tracks. I would never want to live this close to the railroad, but at least some elevation gives a little more separation.

This was one of the 40-story projects that had been proposed; now down to 20 and 32.

It was never going to be 40-stories. Raleigh only allows zoning in max story allowances. They wanted 32 -stories so they requested the 40-story zoning because that's the only zoning category that allows 32-stories. 

 

That being said, even though the residential tower still doesn't have a rendering it looks leagues better than Charlottte's 33-story Ellis residential tower. That thing is why Raleigh no longer approves extensive EIFS exteriors on projects like this one.

      Appears that this project is finally underway, and I think is big enough for its own thread.  Dual-branded Hilton Garden Inn/Homewood Suites at the corner of McDowell and Davie St.  I believe this is the current rendering, good to finally see another hotel in downtown Raleigh.

      Drive by from yesterday (sorry for all the glare):

      Didn't see another thread for the Boylan Heights neighborhood (bounded by Western Blvd, the prison, the railroad tracks, and briefly Dawson/McDowell St).  Not sure what the status on The Lynde is, but fencing is up with marketing graphics.  Also a pic of some townhomes around the corner.

      There have been several recent residential developments along New Bern/Edenton, and with the coming BRT line, redevelopment will likely accelerate in this part of Raleigh.
      Here are some new townhomes nearing completing at I believe Seawell Ave.

The $62 Million building will relocate EA Sports 700 employees from Maitland to downtown, with the potential to have a thousand people working for them by 2025. EA is  promoting the new Orlando facility as their  "premier  development studio on the east coast.  EA Tiburon is home to employees working across multiple teams and organizations including: WW Studios  (Madden NFL, NBA LIVE, Madden Mobile, NBA LIVE Mobile, ArtWorks, AudioWorks, Frameworks, Believable Characters), Technology, Marketing, Publishing and Competitive Gaming."

      The western area of Raleigh along Blue Ridge Rd, Edwards Mill Rd, and around the PNC Arena is booming with office and residential density.

       
      Many office buildings are 4 stories in this area, with some, such as this new one, are hitting 6 stories.  This one is being built in the construction area in the above shot. 

      Ground level retail is also becoming more common.  This part of Raleigh is a bit isolated but is picking up critical mass to support it's own eco-system of employment, shopping and residential.
