North Shore at Centennial Campus

About This Project

Located on the banks of Lake Raleigh, the North Shore is at the heart of North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus. This urban infill development features a mix of apartments and townhomes with access to community amenities and local attractions; future developments on the Centennial Campus will include a hotel and conference center, a nonwoven fiber production facility with office space, and a medical office and lab building.

Existing underground infrastructure at the site included water, public and private sewer, storm drainage, electrical lines, and a fiber optic duct bank. WithersRavenel’s strategy for addressing utility conflicts involved a mix of demolition, relocation, and careful design.

Walkability is a top priority for the community, so WithersRavenel’s design favors pedestrian accommodations. Opting to have buildings directly front the streets, which are narrower and feature parallel parking, enabled the creation of a system of sidewalks throughout the site. WithersRavenel also took care to incorporate access points for both the campus trail network and the Capital Area Greenway.
