Clancy & Theys project will increase Raleigh’s transportation options, bring development to downtown

March 6, 2018

Clancy & Theys is behind another project that will spark residential and retail development in downtown Raleigh.

In a joint venture with Skanska and an association with Holt Brothers Construction, Clancy & Theys is nearing completion on Raleigh’s new Union Station, a multi-modal transportation hub that will replace the overcrowded Southern Railway depot on Cabarrus Avenue later in 2018.

Travelers and locals alike will be able to gather on the outdoor plaza or watch as trains approach the station from the train-watching platform.

Within the station, commercial space has been allocated for restaurants, retail and offices. Developers hope the station will have economical food options for travelers, in addition to a destination restaurant offering dinner with a view of the downtown skyline.

Union Station will also serve as downtown Raleigh’s second bus hub, providing connectivity and mobility to the Warehouse District.

The project will help provide mass-transit options for Raleigh’s rapidly expanding population, not only serving Amtrak passengers, but also connecting riders to other forms of transit.

Union Station is expected to spark yet more residential and retail development in the Warehouse District, which is experiencing its own cultural resurgence.

Clancy & Theys is excited for the upcoming completion of this project and, as always, is thrilled to be a part of the continued revitalization of downtown Raleigh and the Warehouse District.
