In 2020, despite an international pandemic and a national economic downturn, Downtown Raleigh’s growth has continued in every asset class. The development pipeline remains full of new and exciting projects that will continue to place Downtown Raleigh among the fastest growing downtowns in the country.

While Downtown Raleigh has seen tremendous investment and development it has also emerged and grown into its own as a vibrant cultural center and locus of creative talent and energy within the region.  Entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, innovative tech companies, award-winning chefs, and cutting-edge makers all find a home and support for their creations in the Downtown Raleigh community.

This website displays highlights from the 2020 State of Downtown Raleigh report, a 92-page document produced by the Downtown Raleigh Alliance. The report includes market trends, population data and projections, data on downtown development, and overviews of everything downtown from arts and restaurants to tourism, green space, the local food movement and much more. More in-depth information can be found in the report itself, available to view interactively on Issuu or download here.
