Crescent Cameron Village Update

Retail Space Fully Committed As Luxury Apartments
Set To Begin Preleasing October 1

Crescent Cameron Village, a new mixed-use community under development by Crescent Communities and the first residential quarters within historic Cameron Village, has fully committed its 17,900 square feet of street retail with a blend of national, regional, and local retailers, some of which are making their first Raleigh appearances.

“We continue to have a strong focus in bringing new concepts and best-in-class retailers and restaurants to our communities,” said Ben Collins, vice president of Carolinas and Tennessee for Crescent Communities multifamily group. “Our retail partners ensure that residents of Crescent Cameron Village can enjoy fantastic new restaurants, high intensity fitness, and plenty of pampering just steps from their front door – it’s a combination they won’t find anywhere else in Raleigh,”

Tenants will include locally-owned Eschelon Experiences, operators of Cameron Bar & Grill in Cameron Village, which is opening a new concept called “Faire” that brings a unique perspective on food and inventive dining in a stylish atmosphere. The steak and seafood restaurant will complement Eschelon’s other Triangle favorites including Zinda New Asian and The Oxford Gastropub.

Brixx Wood Fired Pizza, which was introduced to the Raleigh market in 2007, rounds out Crescent Cameron Village’s dining options bringing its signature high-quality menu and craft beer and wine selection to this unique location. Brixx appeals to a wide array of palates with wood-fired pizza, fresh salads, vegan and gluten-free menu items and focaccia bread baked daily on site.

Benelux Coffee, which also has a downtown Raleigh location, will bring inspiration from the European Benelux countries with a café dining experience of coffee and tea, waffles, pastries, sandwiches and Belgium beer. Benelux Coffee is also a gathering place for cyclists, which will be synergistic with its neighbor Flywheel Sports®.

A Raleigh first, Flywheel Sports offers high-energy indoor cycling classes featuring unprecedented stadium-style seating, custom engineered bikes and curated playlists by an in-house DJ. Riders are able to track their performance and participate in friendly competition with the help of Flywheel’s proprietary on-bike and in-studio technology. Popular in cities including New York, Miami and Los Angeles, it is only the third location in the Carolinas.

Raleigh also will see its second Hand & Stone® Massage and Facial Spa when the massage therapy and skincare spa opens at Crescent Cameron Village. Franchised by Raleigh residents Dr. Kathleen and Michael Newport, Hand & Stone’s licensed massage therapists and certified aestheticians help relieve anxiety, improve circulation and adjust posture for health and wellness benefits.

Additionally, Crescent Cameron Village also will soon announce Raleigh’s first blow dry bar, where expert stylists will wash, dry and blow out hair in a number of styles. A new trend taking roots in many cities across the country, blow dry bars are a convenient and affordable solution for salon fresh hair for people on the go.

Hill Partners, Inc. (www.hillpartnersinc.com) is responsible for the retail component of Crescent Cameron Village, including development consulting, leasing merchandising and tenant coordination services. Founded in 1983, this Charlotte, N.C.-based commercial real estate firm specializes in providing innovative retail development and mixed-use solutions.

The mixed-use community will feature 282 luxury apartment homes, including studio, one and two-bedroom apartments with sophisticated details such as granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. In addition to the ground-floor restaurants and health and fitness retailers, residents can take advantage of complimentary amenities such as Crescent Cameron Village’s resort-style saltwater pool, a health and wellness facility, and conditioned wine cellar with private lockers.

Located at Clark Avenue and Oberlin Road, Crescent Cameron Village is the only multifamily offering in Cameron Village’s history, which dates back to 1947 when it launched as Raleigh’s first planned community.

“Cameron Village was designed to give visitors a unique destination and compliment the community around it,” said John Pharr, senior vice president of the southeast for Regency Centers, which owns Cameron Village. “Crescent Cameron Village and its mix of retail and luxury apartments are adding a new element of interest to what has been one of Raleigh’s most popular shopping and dining experiences for several decades.”

Preleasing of the luxury apartments is scheduled to begin October 1. Information for the community’s luxury apartment homes is available at www.CrescentCameronVillage.com. York Management, who manages the retail at the balance of Cameron Village, will be the retail property manager at Crescent Cameron Village as well.
