In the heart of Northeast Raleigh, North Carolina, a revolutionary concept in apartment living is taking shape at Forge at Raleigh Ironworks. This newly developed mixed-use complex, nestled on the historic grounds of a former steel plant, offers a glimpse into the future of space-efficient living with its Ori Expandable apartments.

The Ori Expandable Studios, featuring the Pocket Studio, span 433 sq ft and redefine the possibilities of studio living by seamlessly combining the comfort and flexibility of one-bedroom functionality at a studio price point. The units feature industrial steel aesthetics, slab floors, and 10t ceilings, creating an airy and modern ambiance.

One of the standout features of these apartments is the innovative Ori Pocket Studio design. This allows residents to transform their living space effortlessly. With different modes such as entertainment, closet, and bedroom modes, residents can adapt their environment to suit their needs throughout the day.

The kitchen is thoughtfully designed, featuring an L-shaped counter, a small fridge, a microwave, an electric stove, oven, dishwasher, and even a garbage disposal. Smart home elements, including a Nest thermostat and split-unit air conditioners and heaters, add a touch of modern convenience to daily living.

However, the star of the show is the Pocket Studio’s disappearing bed. In a matter of seconds, the bed can be effortlessly stored away, freeing up valuable living space during the day. This innovation allows residents to enjoy the functionality of a one-bedroom apartment for the price of a studio.

Beyond the individual apartments, Forge at Raleigh Iron Works offers an array of amenities, including a pool, gym, game lounge, and multiple courtyards. The development is strategically located within North Carolina's Research Triangle, providing easy access to universities and a diverse range of amenities in the area.

Pricing for these cutting-edge Ori Expandable Studios starts at $1,497 per month, positioning them $137 below the city's average rent. With the added benefit of being part of a vibrant mixed-use community, residents can enjoy not only a futuristic living space but also a thriving neighborhood with dining, retail, and entertainment options just steps away.
