Metropolitan Raleigh has become one of the fastest-growing and most attractive areas in the country. Over the past five years, its population has grown 14.2% — more than triple the national average.

The tax benefits offered through the program include deferred capital gains until Dec. 31, 2026, and the potential elimination of taxes on new capital gains if the investment is held for at least 10 years.

  • Raleigh-Durham, #6 Overall Real Estate Prospect 2023 – Urban Land Institute, is experiencing tremendous population and rent growth following the prominent corporate expansion into the area looking to take advantage of lower cost of business and living as well as a highly educated workforce. Companies like Apple, Google, Fidelity, MetLife, Gilead, Lilly, Amgen, Amazon and many others continue to expand in and around Raleigh due to the combination of proximity to the Research Triangle Park and three tier-1 universities (Duke, UNC, NC State) that produce large talent pools of young professionals each year.
  • Located just south of Downtown Raleigh, residents will enjoy close proximity to employment nodes and convenient access to all that Raleigh has to offer. Situated along US-401, the Project provides convenient access to the city’s highway system and allows residents to easily commute to key employment or entertainment nodes like the Research Triangle Park, Morrisville, Cary, and Downtown Raleigh. The Property is located a few minutes south of the $2.2B master-planned development of Downtown South. Plans detail that approximately 135 acres of land will be developed into a whole new district including around 3M SF of office space, 225k+ SF of retail, 3k+ of apartment units, and 750k+ hotel keys.

The project will also benefit from the contractor’s balance sheet and buying power as one of the largest homebuilders in the country. Bell Partners, based out of Greensboro, NC, will be the property manager and currently works with the Sponsor on other portfolio assets.
