Choate Breaks Ground on Horseshoe at HUB Research Triangle Park
February 17, 2023
Choate Construction Company teams up with White Point to break ground on a flagship mixed-use project that will be a catalyst in attracting and retaining top-tier talent to the Triangle area. Located within the Research Triangle Park (RTP), Horseshoe is the first project to break ground in the RTP’s new downtown – HUB RTP. The multi-faceted 160,000 square feet project consists of two, single-story pavilions flanking a five-story mixed-use tower. The development, activated with ground-floor retail, wraps around a central outdoor courtyard, overlooking 16 acres of greenspace and providing connectivity to streamside boardwalks and the Park’s existing 20+ mile trail system.
“It’s been an exciting venture to work alongside White Point and our talented project teams to bring Horseshoe at HUB RTP to life in the,” says Andy Greenberg, Director of Business Development for Choate Construction in Raleigh. “The innovation behind the idea of RTP, and the drive to redefine the live/work/play lifestyle in the Triangle is truly one of its kind, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the team.”
“We are proud to work with Choate on this iconic project at Hub RTP. Together, we are creating a unique destination for those within the RTP, as well as doing our part to attract new talent and innovation to the area,” says Erik Johnson, co-founder of White Point.
The project scope includes a 315,000-SF precast parking deck with metal panels and over 1,000 parking spaces. The flat panel exterior doubles as an ideal space for projecting a movie for the community or well-placed advertising.
Horseshoe at Hub RTP creates a rich and bustling community within the largest research and technology park in the United States. RTP is a 7,000-acre global conglomeration of science, technology, and industry innovation that continues to revolutionize the meaning of a live, work, play development through luxury apartments, modernized office space, bustling retail, and 16 acres of parks and green space.
