Raleigh Emerging As Major Metropolis

Record #:
Nestled in groves of trees, North Carolina's capital city's--Raleigh--expansion is not always visible. But it's there, ranking Raleigh as the fastest-growing city in the United States. From the revitalized downtown to the new office tower Kane is building along the Interstate 440 Beltline; from downtown to Crabtree Valley Mall, Triangle Town Center and the suburban havens of Brier Creek and Wakefield; from center city urban residential growth through the Inner Beltline and on to the Outer Beltline; the remarkable changes in North Carolina's capital are simply breathtaking.\r\nNot just in terms of new buildings, but also in the preservation and modernization of older structures as the city grapples to preserve its historic past with the needs of a growing future. A significant example of Raleigh's growth is centennial campus, a vast high tech mixed use development by NC State University to site campus activities with private research firms and residential options, including a soon-to open Arnold Palmer designed golf course.
