Media Two Interactive is located in a great neighborhood. Raleigh’s old warehouse district is growing and becoming a highly desirable spot to work and play. We have great food within a 2 minute walk of our office. We have an art museum going up on the street behind us. We have a plethora of great businesses in the same block. So today we decided to take a quick walk around and show you some of the cool stuff we get to see everyday.
I usually go out the back door of our office because it’s closer to our parking, and I really like the view from our second story. You can see William-Cozart‘s sign, Centerline‘s big blue building and the old-school Dillon Supply Co.’s building. As we walk down the back stairwell we look right into Humble Pie. On warm summer evenings, it’s hard to walk by. We share our parking with Design Box and Raleigh Denim. How cool is that? Having creative artsy people around is always a nice benefit. The lot empties onto South Harrington St directly accross from Centerline’s front door and Boyette’s Performance Automotive is right on the corner. I love the look of Boyette’s, like an high performance engine shop should look.
The next thing you might see is the bench with no back legs, then the front door to Design Box, then our front door! We share the door with Raleigh Denim – they are on the first floor (with a cool new retail shop) and we’re up on the second floor.
Parking on West Martin Street is usually available at metered spots. Some are two hours, others only 1.
One of the best benefits to our location is that we are about 18 seconds away from The Pit! We just walk down the back alley and we’re there. We also sometimes grab the crazy good lunches at Cherry Bomb Grill or the simple comfort food at Berkeley Cafe.
We’re waiting on our newest neighbor – Spy. The word on the street is that it will be a coffee bar in the morning and a regular bar at night.
How’s the neighborhood where you work everyday?
