We are excited to see this project come to life! The Old Clayton Town Hall building was built in 1925 and was once the "heart of the town." It housed municipal offices, the library, courthouse, fire department, police department, and a small jail. The building was heavily utilized throughout most of the remaining twentieth century, but has been vacant for a number of years following the relocation of the municipal offices.
After a few years in the works, Pizza Times has opened the doors! This project is an extension of the Raleigh Times kitchen. The kitchen actually wraps around the block- Pizza Times is located on Wilmington Street. Takeout only!

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is expected to open in March, and we’re getting excited. The mural on the front of the building is underway, the front patio is poured, and the interior is getting close.
