707 N. West St. all permitted up!

Permit drawings were approved yesterday for the renovation of 707 N. West St., the new home of the best view of downtown Raleigh!  One suite is currently pre-leased, but 7,000 sf are still available.  The building was previously utilized as a trophy parts distributor and has served a variety of light industrial functions over the years.

You may have seen the N&O  article that mentioned the re-development of the property by the Lundy Group.  Architect Rob Sarle and assistant PM Kimberly Mott spearheaded the project; they are the same dynamic duo that worked on the adjacent building at 500 W. Peace St.  where IT firm Spectraforce will soon be setting up shop.  Maurer Architecture is excited to be involved in preserving these spaces and helping to retain the history of this diverse corner of downtown Raleigh!
