Downtown Raleigh lies at the heart of the Triangle, the fastest growing metropolitan region in the Carolinas. For businesses, residents and visitors alike, downtown is the urban center of the region.
Downtown is the historic, functional and symbolic heart of Raleigh. It contains the largest concentration of government and commercial buildings and lies at the nexus of the City’s roadway and public transportation networks. It is the seat of government for the County and State as well as the municipality. More cultural venues, attractions and events are located in Downtown than any other area of the region. More recently, it has become a fast-growing residential neighborhood.
