ABOUT THE SHOWCASE HOME
Hargett Place, a new community of nineteen luxury rowhomes in downtown Raleigh, hosted a Designer Showcase Home event in partnership with several local businesses and for the benefit of the Southeast Raleigh YMCA.
Hyde Street Holdings is the developer of Hargett Place and Greg Paul Builders is the builder of Hargett Place, a first-of-its-kind neighborhood where southern luxury meets urban living in Raleigh’s burgeoning downtown.
The Showcase Home offered approximately 2,300 square feet of interior living space, two-car parking, plus 1,000 square feet of outdoor living, including a rooftop garden with sweeping views of downtown Raleigh.
For the Showcase event, local designers will curate beautiful, livable spaces through interpretations of the theme of urban living. Both interior and exterior living spaces will feature an aesthetic that blends traditional southern elegance with an urban edge. Kim Shirley was responsible for all selections, along with buyer’s interaction.
The designers worked with Artspace to curate original works of art by some of Raleigh's finest artists to be featured.
A Benefit Preview Party was held on March 24th, 2017 and the Showcase Home was open to the public March 25-26, April 1-2, and April 8-9.

Special thanks to the sponsors and supporters for making the Designer Showcase Home event at Hargett Place possible.
Trish and John Healy of Hyde Street Holdings, creators of the Designer Showcase Home event, were inspired by excitement around the development of Hargett Place. The mission behind the event is to drive support for growth in downtown Raleigh. And more specifically, for neighbor and long-time personal cause of the couple, the Southeast Raleigh YMCA.
The YMCA of the Triangle is currently in the middle of a capital campaign to support development of a YMCA beacon site off Rock Quarry Road near I-40. In addition to a YMCA facility, plans for the 32-acre site call for an elementary school and affordable housing, with the potential for additional services such as fresh food access and specialty medical care.
The YMCA of the Triangle has served Raleigh and the broader community for more than 160 years. For nearly three years, the YMCA engaged residents and community organizations in Southeast Raleigh to gauge interest in building a YMCA facility.
In December, Wake County School Board members voted to approve a development agreement with the YMCA of the Triangle to design, develop and build an elementary school on the YMCA beacon site. On January 3, the Wake County Commission voted to appropriate $1 million to pay for the design of the facility. This marks another significant milestone in this innovative service model.
The Southeast Raleigh Promise has been born from this larger vision. Throughout the next 12-18 months, this independent, quarterback organization will continue to develop cross-sector partnerships and engage the community in shaping the assets and services delivered on the YMCA Beacon Site and beyond.
