Rockway (formerly Park City South) - Saunders/Lake Wheeler Apartments and Retail

This is a view from the greenway. Once the trees comes in you won’t really even be able to see it from the trail.

Is it just me or would the parking deck lump sticking out the top look so much better if they wrapped it in brick, as well??? I would almost prefer that to a random paintjob to appear as some planned mural when in actuality it will very much look like an obvious attempt at covering up a parking deck lump with random buckets of paint.

Lol I was going to reply back joking that maybe they should wrap the top of the parking deck in brick too, to make you happy.

I’m not even joking though, I think that would really make the parking deck lump much easier to swallow if it wasn’t just straight-up concrete. They could even add some paint to the brick once installed!

At least this project is aesthetically interesting (minus that gosh ugly parking deck)

I assume screening/painting the deck will be the final step once all the important things are done but… goodness I can’t wait till the day comes hahaha

Rockway has a website now, and I don’t believe the name of the third phase has been revealed previously:

New renderings in addition to what has been posted already:



Also, Kane seems to be trying to add to the lexicon of Raleigh neighborhoods by branding the area between" between Lake Wheeler and Saunders as “The Park District.”

For some reason this garbage siding has become the go to for apartments. I cant stand it. I agree that it looks cheap. It’s awful!

That reason is money.
It’s still much better than vinyl siding you see often on tract-homes

I’m :100: in agreement with you regarding the developers trying to save money :moneybag:. Problem is renters perception, becomes their reality that your still going to charge an arm and leg to rent there :-1:t2:
