WEB EXCLUSIVE It’s not clear what 2021 will look like for commercial real estate. Many companies continue to work from home without a timeline on returning to the office. In a JLL Raleigh-Durham report released at the end of 2020, vacancies were continuing to inch up. It was also reported that rental rates were holding steady with landlords offering concessions instead of lowering rents to keep property values stable. That said, construction didn’t stop in 2020—setting the stage for delivery of big developments across Wake County.

By April 2021, Kane Realty Corp.’s second phase of Smoky Hollow will be complete. The Line Downtown Apartments is open, and the office building, 421 Harrington, will open later this month. The Hollow, the street-level restaurant and retail concept lining the cobblestone streets will open in April.

  1. Raleigh Crossing Building: Looks weird beside the classic Campbell University building across the street.
    There are several new towers in downtown Raleigh that are unattractive, several of these have red or orange colored stripes on them. Also some of them look like different colored boxes stacked up.
    Do not like the proposed 40-story towers that have been approved by City Council.
