Originally proposed to be a mixed use development featuring condominiums, office and retail space, The Lafayette has been postponed indefinitely.
From the Empire Properties Website:
"The Lafayette building, offering luxury condominiums, will be located in the south end of downtown in Raleigh’s cultural and entertainment district, a few steps from the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Housekeeping and concierge services will be available to residents of the building, which also will feature a boutique hotel, signature restaurant, spa and fitness center and rooftop pool. The talented and award-winning New York architect, Steven B. Jacobs, will set a new standard for urban architecture in the Southeast in The Lafayette, which will offer impressive skyline views of downtown and panoramic views of Raleigh to the south and west."
