What makes downtown Raleigh so appealing?

Founded in 1792 as the state capital, today Raleigh combines Carolina charm with an urban edge. In the heart of the city, downtown Raleigh’s skyline of classic historic buildings has welcomed new skyscrapers. This blend of old and new architectural treasures is home to cultural, government and corporate organizations that understand the value of operating in the city center. A walk through downtown Raleigh also finds galleries and museums couched among top-rated restaurants and gathering places for all ages. Businesses headquartered in downtown Raleigh know the benefit of this all-around accessibility, walking distance from the office in a surprisingly affordable location.

The competitive edge for businesses in downtown Raleigh goes beyond an attractive place with access to cultural and government resources. It extends to offering quality employees an opportunity to be part of a community of like-minded professionals who interact easily, building work relationships and friendships through regular interaction or over an easy lunch.

The city and the surrounding neighborhoods also offer a wide range of condominiums, apartments and single-family homes for those who truly want to make downtown Raleigh their home – most even make for an easy walk to work. Those who live outside the heart of the city still benefit from all that downtown has to offer. Take pleasure in a picnic lunch in one of downtown Raleigh’s four-acre parks in Moore Square or Nash Square. Shop the Moore Square Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays for local produce, breads, cheeses and delicacies. Check off a few errands with a walk to the post office, printer, bank or drug store. Meet friends for a coffee or a drink after work at a local establishment. Or kick back and enjoy free outdoor concerts that enliven summer nights after the workday is through. And the opportunities continue to grow.

Businesses based in downtown Raleigh will find even more elegant and easy accommodations for clients and guests, who will have the advantage of proximity to the office, as well as to fine and casual dining, shopping and the arts.

With all that is available and coming to downtown Raleigh, more and more businesses are making the move from anonymous office centers and fluorescent-lit conference rooms to a place of character where they can really be a part of something. See for yourself what all of the buzz is about. Make the move to downtown Raleigh.
