Like many municipalities throughout the Southeast, Raleigh is experiencing significant development, and the Midtown Market Avenue area is a prime example of that. Our landscape architecture team was excited to be able to contribute to quality of life of the neighborhood by including a nature trail in the local SECU project designed by our architecture team.
The trail met open space amenity requirements of the UDO, and it took advantage of the unique characteristics of the site. Because there was space along the ravine behind the credit union, we were able to provide a trail with views across the ravine. It will benefit the customers and staff of the credit union as well as the residents of the multiple apartment complexes being built along that stretch of Midtown Market Avenue.
