Downtown Sushi

The News & Observer reported this weekend that Waraji is coming to downtown Raleigh. They are taking over the Est Est Est location on Hargett St.

After learning that the Chinese restaurant on Salisbury and Martin was closing as well as the BBQ place on St. Mary's, it's nice to see more restaurants coming downtown.

Raymond Street - Raleigh's Secret

Thank goodness for Broker open houses. There are so many new projects going on, it's hard to keep up. Today I discovered a new little neighborhood right off Hillsborough Street (well, it's off Daisy to be specific). It's fabulous. Single family homes with 2 car garages on the alley. Great front porches to sit and sip a beverage. And spectacular details on the interior. Gorgeous floors, big rooms. What else is there to say? Well done.

There are multiple layouts to choose from - some have master down, some have a third floor finished bonus. But you are so close to everything. Walk to Hillsborough Street and downtown. Or walk to Whole Foods. You're a hop, skip and a jump from the greenway entrance at Meredith College.

Want to see them? Call your agent or if you don't have an agent, call me. We'll go tour.

Hue Breaks Ground

I've been waiting to post this because I wanted to link to the floorplans, but they still aren't online and I'm impatient. In any case, the Hue broke ground last week and the buzz has begun. The big excitement about the Hue is that half the project will be priced under $290,000. For those who have the desire to live downtown but just can't afford the price tags, the Hue is the place for you. They'll have:
- 54 studios
- 71 one bedrooms
- 29 one bedroom + den
- 54 two bedroom, 2 baths
As with many new construction projects, information will come out in spurts, so stay tuned for that floorplan link.
