The 12-story tower fuses modern design and technology with abundant green space to establish
 The Exchange Raleigh’s wellness-oriented masterplan.

Raleigh, NC – September 22, 2022 – Dewitt Carolinas, Inc., a real estate development firm specializing in large scale mixed-use, multifamily, and commercial properties throughout the Carolinas, will today break ground on 1000 Social, the first of two twelve-story office towers at its 40acre, billion-dollar project, The Exchange Raleigh. 1000 Social will establish the mixed-use project’s overall aesthetic, with modern architecture balanced by expansive outdoor workspaces and sweeping views of the surrounding four-acre park, which anchors the entire project. 1000 Social will deliver 330,000 sq ft of class-A office space, 20,000 sq ft of retail, and 5,000 sq ft of conference and meeting centers. The building is one of two mirror-image towers that together comprise The Exchange Raleigh’s Social Towers office complex. When complete, the two towers will be connected by an elevated pedestrian skybridge and park. For renderings of 1000 Social and The Exchange Raleigh visit this dropbox link.

“1000 Social represents our overall vision for The Exchange Raleigh, a high-performing, environmentally responsive community that inspires wellness and optimizes productivity with a seamless flow between outdoor and indoor spaces,” said Dewitt Carolinas CEO Todd Saieed. Set within seven acres of preserved green space and native hardwoods, 1000 Social embraces biophilic design principles and will obtain LEED and WELL certification for sustainable performance and design standards that optimize health and well-being.

Social Towers Offer Unique Headquarters Opportunity

The top two levels in the first tower, at 28,500 square feet each, will be reserved for a headquarters tenant. As the buildout of The Exchange Raleigh progresses, these levels will connect to the second tower, 2000 Social, via the two-story skybridge and park. The staggered build-out plan allows for tenant growth and expansion over time. Serving as a signature and iconic element for The Exchange Raleigh, the skybridge will offer a dramatic focal point that, together with high-impact signage, will be visible from I-440, Raleigh’s beltline.

The architect for 1000 Social is Rule Joy Trammell Rubio, LLC, of Atlanta. The landscape architect is Dallas-based Studio Outside. Brasfield & Gorrie is the general contractor. Leasing will be managed by CBRE of Raleigh.
