More than ever, Raleighites are opting for high-rise living in the heart of downtown. Although an expansive house resting on acres of land sounds idealistic, the reality is that this picture-perfect home comes with quite a bit of upkeep. High-rises, on the other hand, offer residents a much simpler lifestyle with an exceptional amount of benefits, such as 24-hour concierge services, onsite fitness centers and upscale pool amenities, just to name a few.

The demographic of high-rise residents has expanded over the recent years. What was once viewed as a lifestyle for the elderly has significantly expanded to include everyone from empty nesters and families with young children to young professionals and newly-weds. This expansion in demographic is due to what everyone wants – simplification of an elaborate lifestyle. Downtown high-rises offer luxury without upkeep, expansive views of the Raleigh skyline, and are conveniently located within walking distance to some of the city’s top restaurants and entertainment. Who wouldn’t want to live this streamlined, easy way of life?
