Help Raleigh redesign Commerce Place

The City of Raleigh is reimaginging a historic alley in the Warehouse District near The Pit and Raleigh Denim Workshop. Commerce Place could be home to public art, streeteries, and more in the future.

Led by the City’s Urban Projects Group, the City of Raleigh plans to reimagine Commerce Place, a historic alley in the Warehouse District.

Currently, this area is a loading zone for businesses and has unregulated parking spots. Local artist Anthony Ulinski has a storefront alone the street called Dovetail Woodworks, and the road is flanked by The Pit on West Davie Street and Raleigh Denim Workshop on West Martin Street.

The goal is to turn this underutilized space into a people-centered place with streeteries, public art, and other amenities. Do you have more ideas for this promising space? Let us know and join the Commerce Place(making) event next First Friday, Nov. 3 from 3 to 9 p.m. on Commerce Place to share your thoughts with the city.
