The Stephenson was the first development that Chappell [Powered by Compass] partnered with Lock 7 to execute. 615 Peace, a modern condominium on the western gateway of Downtown Raleigh’s Glenwood South district, launched a few months after The Stephenson. Notably, both joint ventures recently sold out in their respective pre-sale periods. 

However, the similarities don’t stop there. The Stephenson is set to boast a boutique condo experience on the cusp of the Village District.

“Knowing that our firm isn’t just witnessing this boom in our Triangle market – but that we’re active drivers of the progress is beyond rewarding.”

“Providing high-density living in highly-coveted districts is a vital component of meeting the Triangle’s inventory demand,” states Johnny Chappell, Owner/Broker at Chappell. “The Stephenson provided us the unique opportunity to bring 20 brand-new residences to a neighborhood people are literally lining up to call home. Knowing that our firm isn’t just witnessing this boom in our Triangle market – but that we’re active drivers of the progress is beyond rewarding.”

Chappell continues, “There couldn’t be a better indicator of buyer & investor demand in our market than the presale success at 615 Peace and The Stephenson. Right now, we’re seeing unprecedented Triangle growth – largely fueled by incoming industries & reactionary relocating. However, we’re also seeing 75% fewer available homes than two years ago. This clearly doesn’t add up, and only one thing can solve it – inventory. Our firm is doing what we can to bring much-needed homes to market, all while making sure our priority is on quality and service.”
