Connectivity & Greenspace

Downtown Raleigh continues to see major new investments as the region’s hub for transportation, walkability, and greenspace. Downtown is the most walkable part of the Triangle, becoming a leader nationally in downtown greenspace, adding new transit investments for increased regional connectivity, and is home to energy efficient buildings as well as new initiatives for sustainability to reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions.
