RALEIGH, N.C. – Cary residents are sure to notice a change in scenery at the intersection of Maynard Rd. and James Jackson Rd., as a prime undeveloped corner has become the Maynard Office Center. The high-profile community project nears completion this summer thanks to real estate developer Russell Gay & Associates and commercial contractor Rufty-Peedin Design Builders.
Owner Russell Gay selected Rufty-Peedin for its experience with complex site engineering, design and construction. The team partnered with Maurer Architecture to design the Maynard Office Center.
“I’ve known Steven Peedin for 25 years and have a strong level of trust in Rufty-Peedin to put a building on the ground within the timeline and budget we established from the outset,” said Gay, whose company specializes in commercial properties for sale and lease in Cary, Raleigh and Wake Forest.
“He’s my go-to guy for construction projects and has a keen appreciation for high-quality features that the Cary community will appreciate when they visit the buildings,” he said.
The two free-standing buildings located at 1720 and 1750 NW Maynard Rd. have all brick exteriors and serve as garden-level offices at 4,550 square feet and 12,000 square feet, respectively. They can be configured into professional suites of 1,500 to 12,000 square feet and are available for purchase or lease.
The buildings’ exteriors have been designed to appeal to the community design aesthetic, featuring energy efficient bronze glass and intricate brick detailing with colored mortar. Construction began in January and is expected to finish this summer.
“We’re excited to build the Maynard Office Center complex for Russell Gay, because it’s located in a high-profile area of Cary that visually fits in well with the natural surroundings,” said Steven Peedin, co-founder and president of Rufty-Peedin Design Builders, a commercial construction company in Wake County.
