Senior Planner Jason Brown is happy to answer your questions. Feel free to reach out by email or phone: (919) 217-2245.

Location

Knightdale is close to everything; I-495 (connector to I-95), I-540 (outer loop around Raleigh), and I-40 (major east-west corridor) are here. We're also just nine miles from the outdoor festivals, active nightlife, and museums in downtown Raleigh.

Workforce

Your business has access to an enviable talent pool. Some of the nation's top universities are nearby; Duke, UNC, NC State, and a number of private colleges and universities are minutes away. Wake Tech Community College trains tens of thousands of new workers each year.

Optimism

Knightdale has a youthful attitude and the optimism that goes with it. Our median age (30.8 years) is the youngest in Wake County. Our scenic, tree-lined streets offer a mix of housing - from affordable starter homes to luxurious executive homes.

Amenities

Your employees will enjoy our newest amenities: a 72-acre central park called Knightdale Station that includes open-air shelters, a dog park, running/walking trails, and a great playground. Our new Mingo Creek Trail offers 3.5 miles of shaded, scenic views, plus a connection to more than 30 miles of greenway in Raleigh.
