Raleigh and Cary continue to show up on national lists that rank cities as the “best places for business,” “to meet singles” or “raise a family.”

That’s cool; we’re excited to be a part of it.

While Research Triangle Park out towards Durham has always been a consistent generator of employment for tens of thousands of local workers, the collective urban markets of the Triangle have been doing their part to contribute to the region’s national reputation. Downtown Raleigh especially.

South of Hillsborough St. and just below the hill upon which the city’s professional district sits lies Raleigh’s Warehouse District, a once-tired,worn-out collection of brick storage facilities and reminders of the Old South. It’s technically known as “Raleigh’s Depot National Register Historic District and Warehouse District.

Today, the area is a happening commercial destination with businesses as cool as a handmade jeans brand, chocolate baker and of course, a few art galleries.

The New York Times Travel section recently profiled this popular urban hotspot in a slide show, highlighting places like Raleigh Denim and CAM, the Contemporary Art Museum that’s also part of NC State’s renowned School of Design. If you haven’t heard of Raleigh Denim yet, well, we’d be surprised. The hand crafter of custom denim products has made headlines in almost every style magazine and business news outlet around the country.

For beer lovers, the Warehouse District is home to Brewmasters Bar & Grill, Tasty Beverage Company and the Boylan Bridge BrewpubThat’s a lot of craft beer in one place.

A number of other art galleries, nightspots and stores have recently made their home in this rapidly expanding Raleigh neighborhood.

Naturally, homes are getting snapped up around the area, which borders the NC State campus and somewhat blends with the southernmost point of the equally popular Glenwood South. Inside the Beltline neighborhoods are some of the Triangle’s most popular living options.
