Raleigh’s Warehouse District is ranked among 12 “neighborhoods across America that are about to get crazy popular.”
Travel, entertainment and food website Thrillist ranked Raleigh’s warehouse district alongside neighborhoods in Orlando, Washington, D.C., Nashville, San Francisco, Chattanooga, Tenn., Miami, Minneapolis, Austin, Phoenix, Greenville, S.C., and Bellevue, Wash.
“The old industrial spaces in the warehouse district near downtown Raleigh have lured tech giants like Citrix, and new businesses have sprung up in their midst, catering to employees and (hopefully) residents,” Matt Meltzer, of Thrillist, wrote. “For starters, there’s beer at Crank Arm Brewing, Carolina barbecue at The Pit, and craft chocolate at Videri Chocolate Factory. It’s also home to the new Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh, and the city’s top multi-club nightlife destinations at Legends. The neighborhood’s many brick facades have been restored and transformed into public art spaces to give the area a chic aesthetic, so much so USA Today called it out as one of the best art ’hoods in the nation.
“Next year, the $80 million Union Station opens up, turning the warehouse district into Raleigh’s transportation hub. As it becomes more accessible, look for even more creative spaces and businesses to open up, and more of the city’s transplants to end up here.”
No other North Carolina neighborhoods made the list.
