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.
