New TBJ article on this project. Sounds like things are progressing!

Summary:
The City Council in Raleigh has approved plans to build a new luxury hotel near Downtown Raleigh to support the expansion of the Raleigh Convention Center. The city is prepared to commit up to $75 million towards public-serving elements of the hotel, pending approval from the state’s Local Government Commission. If the city is unable to keep its funding commitment, an agreement is in place to reimburse the hotel developer for pre-construction work. The hotel is projected to open in 2027 with a total development cost estimated at $314.1 million, making it the third Omni Hotel in North Carolina.

Omni will be a great addition to downtown Raleigh. They do day passes for the pool & bar at the Charlotte location. Will be awesome to have access to that amenity here in our downtown.

Site 3 Tower wishlist!!

  1. Ground floor retail: micro-units and large grocery store

  2. Office/Lab space: Innovation labs, scientific research…

  3. Residential: minimal amount of condos, market rate and affordable apartments

All of these uses combined could allow this tower to be 40 stories or taller (if allowed).

Are those elements included in the article or a wish-list? I don’t have access to the article.

I’m sorry for the confusion, I meant to mention it was my wishlist. My phone was about to die when I posted this.

According to someone on LinkedIn there was another “announcement”, most likely in-house, last week of the new Omni being built as part of the CC expansion. :hatched_chick:
