Blue Sky Services Receives Rezoning Approval for New Commercial Real Estate Development

Blue Sky Services has been leading the way in the mixed-use commercial and residential real estate development in key areas of Raleigh, and has just received approval to move forward.


Raleigh, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/07/2014 -- Blue Sky Services has been instrumental in several developments throughout Raleigh in recent years, and has recently proposed a new project that will add another mid-rise building to Raleigh’s urban streetscape. Rezoning of the parcel where Blue Sky is proposing its latest project was recently put up for approval for the creation of mixed commercial and residential development at the southeast intersection of Friendly Drive and Hillsborough Street.

After a 30 day grace period, allowing the Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) an opportunity to comment on the case, the Wade CAC voted overwhelmingly in favor of the request. After a presentation by chief planner Travis Crane, the consistency of the plan with future land use and urban form was unquestionable. After addition of some conditions regarding building design, unit mix and building materials used in construction, the Motion passed with the approval of all members in attendance (See Ordinance 313 ZC 699 for details).

This is fantastic news for Blue Sky, a Leader in Raleigh Commercial Infill Real Estate Development. Since the approval, they finalized the purchase of this property and now they can proceed with work to bring their unique vision, sustainable practices and three decades of experience to bear on this exciting new development.

A spokesperson for Blue Sky Services, Nikita Zhitov, explained, “We are pleased to proceed with the support of the local council and members of the Wade CAC who have been overwhelmingly supportive of the project. By providing an increased awareness of how our project can best serve the community it is being designed to support, Wade CAC has been an important participant in this process. Their endorsement allows us to progress full steam ahead with the development, infusing our commitment to service, quality and professionalism to this cutting edge development, thereby broadening prospects in the entire area.”
