In 2014 Prince Hall was added as a new historic district. In 2016, a hotel developer wished to build a hotel in the district, but did not want to comply with the guidelines. He promptly began inciting a movement to “delist” the portion of the district where he wanted to build. Aided by other developers who stood to gain by this reversal policy, the proposal was pushed through the process. OCPA supported the Raleigh Historic Development Commission in efforts to preserve the Prince Hall District.
