As Raleigh, NC continues to experience rapid growth, city leaders have unanimously approved the first phase of a convention center headquarters hotel and separate office/mixed-use tower in downtown.
The city manager and commercial real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle will issue a Request for Interest on January 27th to identify a pool of potential developers for the project that would include a 500-plus room full-service hotel with meeting space and a second site for an office tower and mixed-use space.
Right now, visitors to the convention center have only the 401-room Marriott, 165-room Residence Inn, and 353-room Sheraton as hotel options within walking distance.
The proposed towers, zoned for 40 stories, would be located on two one-acre surface parking lots on Fayetteville Street in front of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, placing the headquarters hotel within walking distance of the convention center.
