Person Street Partnership Holiday Open House


Exhibition of Final Designs from the Person Street Project

616 Person Street (the former Golden Frog location next to Piebird)

First Friday — December 2, 2011


The open house will kick off with a special holiday reception from 5-6pm honoring the business and property owners on Person Street. The open house will include our stakeholder representatives and members of City Council and staff. This event will feature the debut and unveiling of final designs for the Person Street Project, a senior design studio of the NCSU Architecture School that is focused on a new visioning of Person Street. After the opening reception, we will open the doors to the public from 6-9pm when neighbors from Mordecai , Oakwood, and Downtown Raleigh can view the designs and learn more about the Partnership’s efforts. Major thanks go to Custom Trophy and Engraving for allowing us to use this space and to The Society for the Preservation of Historic Oakwood and the Friends of Mordecai for providing funding to mount the exhibit and host the reception.

We have much to celebrate this holiday season as momentum on Person Street continues to build with every meeting, event, project, and newspaper article that heralds a renaissance which is starting to take hold in the Person Street area.

After the successful start of the First Annual Downtown Raleigh Oktoberfest at Person and Pace Streets which drew an estimated crowd of 800 people, the folks at Raleigh City Farm are gearing up for their first fundraiser which will be a Food Truck Round-Up the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the Farm site at Blount and Franklin Streets from 11am-3pm. Piebird continues to anchor the Person Street restaurant scene and Nicole’s Gallery and Gallery C continue to draw First Friday Gallery goers. We welcome Seneca 5, an engineering firm to the former bank building on the corner of Pace and Person Streets.

Many thanks go to all of the businesses on Person Street who open their doors and continue to serve the greater surrounding community.

See you First Friday!
