The Southern Gateway
City planners imagined a sports complex in the southwest corner of Raleigh's southern Gateway Center--just west of Memorial Auditorium--in its recent 10-year development plan. It is the most urban and walkable site on the list.
The Old Cargill Mill
The recently demolished Cargill Plant sits on the southern edge of Downtown, bordering the South Park neighborhood. This location is unique due to its proximity to I-40 and its integration with rail and greenway.
The Central Prison
Raleigh's Central Prison occupies some pretty prime real estate. Adjacent to the revitalized Warehouse District, the newly constructed Union Station, and Dix Park, this site would be the epicenter of activity in the south end of downtown.
The Penmarc Land
This large swath of underdeveloped land has unlimited potential. It is bounded by I-40, South Saunders Street, and Penmarc Drive, providing easy access to major traffic arteries while still maintaining a connection to the downtown.
We have a few more ideas and we're sure you do too...
We'll be releasing new potential locations as we uncover them. Got an idea of a location that might fit? We'll look into it and if it works, we'll have it mocked-up. Feel free to drop us a line on social media.
