Blueplate PR, a boutique public relations agency in Raleigh, announces three new clients in the architecture and residential development industries: Tonic Design, a multi-award-winning architecture firm in Raleigh; pod architecture + design, an award-winning firm that relocated from Los Angeles to Carrboro; and Modus NC Investments, the design and development group behind “The Saint,” the luxury brownstone-style townhomes currently under construction on St. Mary’s Street in Raleigh.
“It’s very gratifying to have these exciting businesses place their faith in Blueplate PR and our ability to achieve the results they expect from public relations,” said founder and owner Kim Weiss. “
Tonic Design is actually a returning client. Through Blueplate PR’s previous media strategy, principals Katherine Hogan, AIA, and Vincent Petrarca were named “Rising Stars” by Residential Architect magazine in 2013 and their projects have been featured in a host of national publications. Hogan also received a 2014 Women in Business Award from Triangle Business Journal (TBJ) in the “Future Star” category.
pod architecture + design is owned by partners Doug Piersen, AIA, and environmental/experiential graphics designer Youn Choi. Licensed in five states, pod a+d completed nationally and internationally acclaimed projects in the Los Angeles area and beyond before relocating the hybrid architectural firm first to Durham then, more recently, to Carrboro. Based on the recommendation of another architect, Piersen contacted Blueplate PR to help his firm establish a stronger presence in the Triangle region.
Modus NC Investments is a Canadian-based real estate development group that includes architect Souheil Al-Awar. Al-Awar designed The Saint’s 17 modern, four-story townhomes going up on St. Mary’s Street between West Jones and West Lane streets with sizes ranging from 2700 to 4400 square feet. Modus NC Investments insists The Saint will “redefine luxury living” in Raleigh. Blueplate PR is charged with increasing the project’s visibility and differentiating it from other residential developments in the city.
