 A Space to Explore Your Passion.

Raleigh, NC 27604

DOCK1053 is a creative community for makers, entrepreneurs, artisans, retailers and forward thinkers. It’s what happened when creativity and vision transformed a run-down 1950’s A&P Warehouse into the coolest space in Raleigh. Located at the doorstep of Raleigh’s Five Points, Person Street, and Mordecai neighborhoods, this is a place where locals and visitors alike can enjoy new experiences in an old way. We seek the curious and creative from all walks to eat, learn, shop, make and collaborate in an effort to add even more salt to this flavorful city we call Raleigh.

In its simplest form, Dock 1053 offers warehouse, manufacturing, office and retail space in a location convenient to both downtown and Midtown Raleigh. Tenants include Lynwood Brewing Concern, Trig Modern, Lee Hansley Gallery, Cotton Bar, Glas Studios, Hummingbird, Loading Dock Raleigh, and the newly opened Wilson’s restaurant. Dock 1053 is digging up tradition by encouraging our community to partner with local tradesmen to grow their business, expand their skill set, and hone their passion.


Accolades: Dock 1053 has received the 2018 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance, 2017 ULI York Excellence Award Winner, 2017 Triangle Crew Best Redevelopment, 2017 Honorable Mention for Redevelopment of the Year from Triangle Business Journal.
