Construction begins on apartments in Raleigh's Glenwood South
Posted November 24, 2014
Following the demolition of an old office building and a former church, permits were issued Nov. 12 for the construction of The Gramercy, an apartment building with ground-floor retail.
Situated on the corner of Glenwood Avenue and West North Street, the six-story project will contain 203 residential units and 6,900 square feet of retail space. According to a site plan filed in 2011, the entire building will come in at around 319,000 square feet.
The initial plans, drawn up by JDavis Architects, list the same number of residential units but included about 4,000 more square feet of retail, so it's likely the final size will be close to the original.
The property, which will also include a 260-space parking deck, will be built by Choate Construction, a multistate firm that has worked on a variety of similar projects, including downtown's 52-unit Dawson on Morgan, a condominium with ground-floor retail.
As construction begins on the Gramercy, work is wrapping up on another multifamily project. Permits were recently issued for the final building at the Fairview Row at Five Points development.
The project consists of three 3-story buildings containing a total of 12 condominium units. The Colonial and Federal style structures were designed by local firm Carter Skinner, and are being constructed by Williams Realty and Building.
