Located at Falls of Neuse and Honeycutt Roads, this premier location falls amidst Raleigh’s most affluent zip codes. The 6.84 acre site captures the many new exclusive residential developments just to the north. Over 70,000 cars per day on the east-west 540 will greatly expand normal shopping access to Lafayette Village.

Not too large or overwhelming, the space is manageable, convenient and well suited to fulfill the vision of a small European village. The village, with its thematic charm, draws strength as a commercial entity from an appropriate and select roster of tenants which complement, and meld into the concept. Potential tenants will require review by and approval from the Oversight Team for Lafayette. Only those prospective tenants viewed as integrating into the micro culture of Lafayette, and as supporting the solidarity of the village will be accepted. By creating a strong, symbiotic relationship among and between store owners/operators/center management, all will benefit from a special idea and commercial experience.

We encourage new ideas or concepts, compatible with our vision, to be submitted for review. For merchants who believe that Lafayette fits with their business plans, and who embrace the Lafayette concept, please contact us.
