Dock 1053 is a creative community for makers, entrepreneurs, artisans, retailers and forward thinkers. 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 more salt to this flavorful city we call Raleigh.
Originally built in 1955 for the Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A&P grocery) as a regional distribution facility, the building was more recently used by Winn-Dixie. In its glory days, a siding track allowed train cars to be backed inside the length of the building. Groceries were unloaded under a covered roof. The building featured a cafeteria and locker rooms for dock workers, cooler space and even a candling room for inspecting eggs by hand.
In its simplest form, Dock 1053 offers warehouse, manufacturing, office and retail space in a location convenient to both downtown and Midtown Raleigh. 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.
