Retail • The Arboretum at Weston


The Arboretum at Weston is a unique lifestyle center within an urban, commercial district located in the heart of the Research Triangle in Cary, North Carolina. The development features upscale retail space including several specialty restaurants and retail shops. The project takes advantage of tree lined boulevards, wide sidewalks, abundant landscaping, and site furnishings that stimulate pedestrian activity. The buildings are designed as two-story facades with varying roof types and heights to emulate apartments over shops that are reminiscent of traditional main street buildings. A variety of covered entries, canopies, and awnings are utilized to create shadow lines that serve to delineate the building massing and provide a human scale to the development.

“Over the course of developing more than 7,000 units, you figure out some architects are great at design. Some are great at creating a functional project. Very few can do both. The Preston Partnership is the best at marrying both form and function. They design beautiful buildings that are affordable and efficient. They are the best.”
– John W. Long, South City Partners
