Fayetteville Street

Fayetteville Street is an implementation project that came out of the Raleigh Downtown “Five in Five” Visioning Master Plan. Fayetteville Street began originally as a street, but was converted to a pedestrian mall in the 1970s. Working with Mulkey Engineers, Reynolds & Jewell landscape architects, and Martin Alexiu Bryson, the design team provided the design and implementation documents to revitalize an 8-block section.  


This revitalization strategy returned the corridor back to a street to better activate uses while maintaining the civic celebration of the State Capitol and Cultural Performing Arts Center at the termini. Thousands of people attended the grand re-opening. Known as North Carolina’s Main Street, it proved to be a transformational investment. A $25 million public investment has thus far generated $2.3 billion in completed, planned, or under construction development public/private projects.


The project depicted hereon is a project of Cooper Carry, Inc. Richard J Flierl was principal-in-charge of this project while employed by Cooper Carry, Inc.
