Raleigh council sees plans for future of Moore Square

Posted December 9, 2015

In a meeting Dec. 1, the Raleigh City County heard a presentation on the plans for an update to Moore Square.

Resident feedback was important to the design process, led by architects from Sasaki. Residents wanted to see Moore Square as a place for smaller, everyday events rather than just big events.

The Sasaki representative told councilors that the history of the square was an important part of the design process.

The plans emphasize trees along the South Park Heritage Walk and a flexible, open lawn to allow for a variety of events.

The southeast quarter of the square will feature more buildings – restrooms, a cafe and a fountain.

    "Put an irish pub on all 4 sides not just one." -LETSBEFAIR

    Sounds good to me but Tir Na Nog is gone, closed last month to be replaced by a dim sum restaurant.

    I don't live in Raleigh so I suppose I don't rate an opinion (...but maybe I do, because I spend money in Raleigh) but until they can resolve the homeless issue in Moore Square they're just throwing away money.
