The Blue Ridge Corridor Alliance is an independent non-profit created by a partnership between the City of Raleigh, NC State University and the property owners, businesses and residents of the Blue Ridge Road Corridor in the summer of 2014.
The Blue Ridge Corridor is an area centered around a 3-mile length of the Blue Ridge Road running North-South from Western Blvd. to Edwards Mill Rd. The Blue Ridge Corridor encompasses many outstanding properties including The Health and Wellness District, The Arts and Research District, The Entertainment and Education District, and South of Hillsborough. Within The Health and Wellness District resides the UNC Rex Heart and Vascular Hospital, a new state of the art facility with cutting-edge medical technology.
The vision for Blue Ridge Corridor Alliance is to see the Blue Ridge Corridor rise to be a distinct destination in Raleigh where major institutional assets reside such as museums, entertainment, research institutions, health institutions, and educational institutions. Alongside these institutional assets, there is the anticipation for safe pedestrian and bike transit developmental projects to transpire. Working in cooperation with public agencies to achieve this vision, the Alliance promotes complementary public and private investments that will result in new jobs, increased tax revenue, needed safety features and amenities. The ultimate goal of the Alliance is to cultivate an unparalleled vibrant destination in Raleigh, North Carolina.
