Brittany, Lauren, and I spent some time at the Business After Hours Raleigh Chamber Event this past Thursday, which was hosted by The Plaza Condominiums in downtown Raleigh. These condominiums are a part of the RBC Centura building.
The tours of the 1,2 & 3 bedroom models were terrific. The spaces are a splash of modern sophistication that our downtown skyline has been anticipating for a long time.
I must say the view from the top is pretty !
The countdown is on and it is roughly 12 hours before Design Lines rings in the new year!

A new and exciting business venture for Design Lines, Ltd. has been our recent membership of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce.
This morning-Judy, Brittany, Lauren and I attended the GRCC New Member Breakfast at the Cardinal Club in Downtown Raleigh. From the 28th floor of the Wachovia Building we enjoyed the spectacular morning view while also making many new contacts. Two of our favorites were Sally from The Special Event Company and also John and Damon from Triangle Blvd.tv.
We are looking forward to networking and deepening these business relationships in the community of Raleigh, which has been the backdrop of our company for over thirty years.
