Plans for East End Market — an ~11-acre mixed-use development north of Downtown — are moving along, with construction already underway. Plans call for the redevelopment of industrial warehouse space (previously used for storage and transfer) into a premier food and beverage destination in the East End neighborhood.
The $250 million project, located near Wake Forest Road and East Whitaker Mill Road (near Loading Dock 1053), calls for restaurant + retail space, office space, and apartments. Nearby planned redevelopments include Raleigh Iron Works, 1249 Wicker, and Bowstring Bar.
The first phase
The first phase of East End Market began construction this spring + is slated for completion by the end of this year. It will feature 70,000 sqft of restaurant and retail space, including a new French restaurant entitled East End Bistrot from Triangle restaurateur Giorgios Bakatsias, and a coworking space called Common Desk. We’re most excited about Raleigh’s first cidery — Shady Grove Co. — opening in phase one.
The second phase
Developers SLI Capital and Regent Partners recently acquired the additional land needed for the second phase of East End Market. The 15 parcels of land were purchased for ~$18 million. The second phase will feature up to 465 apartment units, 235,000 sqft of office space + 40,000 sqft of retail. Construction will begin without any pre-leasing and is expected to be completed in late 2023.
