Medianeras In Raleigh

Medianera is a Spanish word used to describe a wall shared by two buildings. In Barcelona it is frequently used to describe a wall of a building that retains characteristics or artifacts of an adjacent building that has been torn down. One of the most easily noticed is the one off of Wilmington Street, as seen above.

Another one is the ghost staircase off of Salisbury Street, near the Court House.

Another one, visible on a building next to Lot 13.

These are the only examples that I am aware of. Do you know of more? Comment on this article and I’ll cover it in a follow-up.
