It’s been two years since we first heard about the West Apartments, one of a number of new 5-6 story apartment buildings to be built downtown. As talk shifted to Greg Sandreuter’s 23-story Skyhouse Apartments announced a year ago, the buzz seemed to die down regarding his smaller 7-story apartment building next to the present West at North condos.
West Apartments II
But now there is another West Apartments, West Apartments II being planned for that same track of land on the northeastern edge of Glenwood South. I haven’t seen anything about it in the news, but the site plan suddenly appeared a few months ago on the City’s website.
If everything happens as planned, that’s a combined total of 500 units on a few acres of land, one of the highest residential densities in downtown Raleigh.
– 170 units West at North Condos
– 153 units West Apartments
– 177 units West Apartments II
– 500 units Total
I see these new apartment buildings together with the new roadway connections associated with the Peace Street Bridge replacement beginning a wave of redevelopment that promises to change the landscape of Glenwood South’s Northeast Corner.
