Raleigh has been named one of the best places to live, work, and play in America. We’ve welcomed many new residents in recent years, spurring a great deal of development in our city – particularly downtown – where pedestrians are plentiful!

In an effort to keep our pedestrians safe, and to guide developers through the planning and design process, the City’s Public Works Department created the first-of-its-kind pedestrian safety manual entitled “Making Great Strides – A guide to accommodating pedestrians in active work zones.” The document, a compilation of best practices for pedestrian accommodations in work zones, lays out the planning and approval process, provides design examples and resources, and gives tips for successful implementation of safety measures.

Today's post, as with the first blog of every month, will highlight a few of the more noteworthy development proposals submitted during the last 30 days. And if you're interested in other projects, we'll direct you to our web page describing all other submittals. Keep in mind that these projects are very early in the plan review process, and changes to the design and/or scope may occur in the future as deemed necessary.

Happy Spring! Today’s blog picture is a great shot of Fayetteville Street as the trees are beginning to bloom. And although there’s a lot of pollen in the air, it sure feels great to go for a stroll and soak up the sun!

Thanks to Paul Kallam, Engineering Manager, and John Kane of Kane Realty Corporation, we had the chance to tour the new Bank of America Tower at North Hills. The tower has a prominent location along Six Forks Road and I-440 and offers stunning views of Raleigh. The groundbreaking was in September, 2014, and it is now nearing completion. Here are some photos for your enjoyment!

Ahhhhh, the 70’S are back (temperatures, that is!). For me, the sunshine and warm temps are a welcome change. And speaking of change, the Development Services Department is implementing some procedural changes that we want you to be aware of.
