City of Raleigh Municipal Campus

Notice how they never put the cost of any development in their headline until it’s a City building. Sensationalist rag, WRAL.


Private buildings don’t have to share cost…public record laws don’t apply

The design team and construction team gathered at dirt for groundbreaking

Groundbreaking Event Recap

The Groundbreaking event was not just a success, but a testament to our collective efforts and dedication.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for the groundbreaking event. The sun was out, a slight breeze blew, and the temperature was perfect.

The event started around 9:30 a.m., with people gathering at Nash Square. Our Engineering Services Department Head, Rich Kelly, was the MC for the event. We were also honored to have Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin as our first speaker. She talked about the importance of the building for the future of Raleigh. The next speaker was Daniel Baumann. Daniel is a Partner and Design Director at Henning Larsen. He graduated from the University College of London and currently resides in New York. During his speech, he talked about the collaboration with his team, Ratio, the lead design firm, and City staff. Next up was Eric Perkinson. Eric is the Regional Vice President at Brasfield, and Gorrie is the construction contractor in charge of building our new City Hall. Eric spoke to the construction and efforts of the City team to bring this project to life. Our last scheduled speaker was our City Manager, Marchell Adams-David. She spoke about the time that projects like this can take. She had former City Manager Ruffin Hall join her to talk about the importance of this building and bringing City Employees under one roof and the enhancements to our customer experience when they visit Raleigh City Hall. One thing that stood out throughout everyone’s speech was the dedication and collaboration of City staff on this project. Once the speeches were over the spotlight turned to the ceremonial groundbreaking, and people mingled and viewed renderings of what the new building will look like.


Since when did Nash Square’s grass become part of this project?


That looks like they have just finished burying someone.


It was. The future of Red Hat Amphitheater :grinning:
