In the Media: Office Development


CBRE|Raleigh is pleased to announce the groundbreaking and first leases for the upcoming Crabtree Terrace mixed-use site in Raleigh, NC. Co-working company Spaces has signed a lease for 31,794 square feet of office space and a high-end, large format restaurant has signed a lease for approximately 12,500 square feet of ground floor retail space. Longleaf Law Partners has also signed a lease for 8,000 square feet of office space in the project. This marks the fifth location for Spaces in the Triangle. Longleaf will relocate from its existing office which is currently located in the Gateway Access building off Lake Boone Trail.

Crabtree Terrace is a mixed-use project that is being developed by East West Partners. The site will contain 145,000 square feet class A office space and 28,000 square feet luxury ground floor retail. Crabtree Terrace will sit adjacent to a luxury hotel and conference center that will be home to a rooftop bar and full-service restaurant. Construction on the project is now underway with an expected delivery of Q4 2019.

“We are thrilled to be underway with this exciting new mixed-use project. The Crabtree Valley submarket always has been and continues to be one of the Triangle’s strongest performing commercial districts. We have a great deal of market interest in the project as is evidenced by the early leasing activity to date. We expect to build on that momentum over the coming months,” said Lee Perry, development director with East West Partners.

The project team for Crabtree Terrace includes Gensler and Kimley Horn leading the design, with Brasfield and Gorrie serving as the General Contractor.

Citizens Bank is providing a construction loan for the project, and equity financing is being provided by Northridge Capital, LLC of Washington, D.C. and SilverCap Partners of Charlotte, NC.  This is East West Partners’ third development in partnership with Northridge Capital and second with SilverCap Partners.

Crabtree Terrace is located at the intersection of Creedmoor Road and Glenwood Avenue, across the street from Crabtree Valley Mall. The site is expected to attract top tenants in this bustling, tight submarket that had a Q2 2018 vacancy rate of 3.8 percent for class A office space.

CBRE|Raleigh’s Advisory & Transaction Services|Investor Leasing group and Retail Services group are handling the office and retail leasing components of the project.
