We’re excited to announce that the Cooke Street Community has been honored as a recipient of the 2010 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance.  The community is also celebrating their 2nd annual Cooke Street Carnival, dubbed “House Party in the Street”, on October 16.

The Sir Walter Raleigh Awards awards celebrate projects making outstanding contributions to the environment and appearance of Raleigh.  Phase II of the Cooke Street Redevelopment is a winner of the Residential category.  The recently completed Phase II of Cooke Street consisted of 17 properties on Cooke, Seawell, and Jones streets, and Selwyn Alley.  Cooke Street is a collaborative effort between multiple agencies with sustainable principles.

TightLines Designs is proud to be a part of the Cooke Street Community.  Many of our homes have been constructed throughout the development.  Phase II includes TightLines’ “Green” Carson, which was the first green certified home constructed by Wake County Habitat for Humanity.

The Cooke Street has proved to be successful community.  Residents are very proud to live in this great neighborhood.  As a testament to the development’s success, the residents are hosting their 2nd annual Cooke Street Carnival on Saturday, October 16 from 1pm to 8pm.  If you’re curious as to what Cooke Street is about, please take this great opportunity to experience the homes and people of the community.
