Charter Square was also massively delayed but happened at the scale it was originally proposed.

Yeah that one was nuts! I remember seeing the renderings in maybe 2007 when I was considering moving here. I saw them digging the pit for part 1 when I stayed at the brand new Marriott in early 2009, thinking how it would done in a couple years. I was so surprised when they finally did part 2, maybe 10 years later?

IIRC, the shorter building may have been as tall as they could’ve gone due to the foundations, but the other tower (now FNB) was initially slated to be MUCH taller.

The FNB tower was also limited to roughly its current height by the foundation.

Looking really nice inside. The also have some very tall custom wood doors at the entrance.

Woah that was fast. Hopefully this means it will open ahead of schedule.

I believe soft opening is early May and then mid to late May is Jason’s schedule last I spoke with him.

Wow – was just thinking about how Raleigh needs more quality coffee options on the West side of downtown with ample seating. Guess someone else had the same thought.

Not to mention another good breakfast/brunch option. It’s been something that’s been sorely missing for a long, long time.

What an incredible, welcoming space. This looks excellent.

Considering the city is more than a quarter remote workers (4th nationally) the lack of decent coffeeshops is surprising.
