Regional Outlook


North Carolina's Biggest Deal

On the north side of Chapel Hill, N.C., the more than $100 million Carraway Village has proposed building up to 837,000 sf of new  multifamily, retail, office, and hotel space on 55 acres, with as many as 23 low- and mid-rise buildings. The community is poised to transform the city's semi-rural northern border and attract multiple regional visitors.

“Our vision for the project has always been to create a lifestyle destination on the north side of town, with a mixture of uses, with options to live, work, and play,” says Adam Golden, vice president of development for Carraway Village developer Northwood Ravin.

Divided into three phases, Golden expects the first $70 million phase to be completed in fall 2018, including 400 apartment units in 10 buildings, 8,400 sf of ground-floor retail stores, and the community's social hub, the 16,000-sf Village Green park area.
