If you are thinking about moving or expanding your business from around the corner to a new location in Knightdale or from another state or country to Knightdale, NC, you have found the most up-to-date and complete resource available for doing just that. The Knightdale Chamber of Commerce tries to answer most of your questions and/or direct you to those who can answer them. (Be sure to visit our Business Resources page on our website.)
If you are interested in available space or land in the Town, check the regularly updated listings of developed properties (PDF) and undeveloped properties (PDF) for sale or lease.
Knightdale's strongest benefit lies in its location within Wake County and in the Triangle region and its close proximity to Raleigh. Knightdale is located 6 miles east of downtown Raleigh, the state capital and is the largest municipality in the eastern Triangle region. The town is near to major intrastate corridors connecting us to Rocky Mount and I-95 northbound, points east as well as to Raleigh, Cary, Research Triangle Park and other points west. U.S. 264 connects Knightdale to southeastern North Carolina and places like Wilson, I-95 southbound, and Greenville.
Before you make a decision on any location within the corporate limits or extra-territorial jurisdiction of Knightdale, the Chamber suggests contacting the Town of Knightdale directly. The planning department can answer your questions and offer you a plethora of local information related to land use, zoning, subdivision and town ordinance issues. The staff will also be able to direct you to other town departments like public works which is the authority on water, and wastewater that is available and where.
If you are looking for land and tax assessor information you can access Wake County property information through their interactive mapping system, IMAPS. From there you can see Knightdale and othe Wake County parcels, property owners, topography, soil, hydrology, and aerial imagery. You can also access BOOKS, the Wake County Register of Deeds online database of deed records. When you are ready to buy and need realtors, attorneys, and other professionals the Knightdale Chamber membership is here to help.
If you are a larger employer, industrial developer, commercial real estate fim, or consultant, you will also want to refer to the resources available from the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, Wake County Economic Development, and the North Carolina Department of Commerce. NC SiteSearch is an integrated statewide industrial property management system available on the web to disseminate information on North Carolina industrial buildings and sites.
