Connectivity is at the core

Our team has meticulously designed a bridge loop that encircles the entire development, ensuring seamless access to and from Downtown Raleigh, fostering efficient circulation within the site, and enhancing connectivity with the rest of the city. The master plan also establishes a positive link to Raleigh’s expansive greenway system and local historic neighborhoods.


Situated in the ‘City of Oaks,’ the master plan draws inspiration from the organic patterns of trees. By preserving existing vegetation on the site, we can retain the natural environment and also create benefits such as noise reduction and air purification from the nearby I-40 Interstate Highway.

The master plan’s series of mid-rise buildings are positioned across a central pedestrian walkway and pocket parks, creating a vibrant retail and F&B street that creates a small-scale neighborhood within the development.

“Raleigh represents an important milestone for 10 Design, as it is our first major project in North America. It is particularly special to me, as it allowed me to transfer a lot of the learnings I gathered from many years working abroad in Asia and around the world, to my hometown in North Carolina. The design for Raleigh provides a mix of simple buildings that merge with the natural landscape and iconic pieces that activate the master plan.”

Ted Givens, Senior Design Principal, 10 Design

10 Design’s vision for Raleigh is to develop a new borough that builds upon the emerging creative industry of the East Coast by providing brand-new homes and public areas for the community and contributing to the reactivation of the southern district of the city, complementing the research triangle to the north of the city. The project ties in with the development of the BTR network to the south. It will generate new job opportunities for the area and create a lively neighborhood that supports the city’s culture of technology and sports, as well as its large network of parks.
