North Hill's Premiere Urban Oasis.

Raleigh, NC

North Hills’ upfit and expansion continues with the incorporation of its first residential high-rise to create a sought-after mixed use destination in the once heavily focused retail center. Highland North Hills, a 12-story tower with 287 units and ground-floor retail, integrates within North Hill’s existing developments creating an upscale living destination with connectivity to adjacent retail spaces, public plazas, and offices.

Bridging urban living with neighborhood charm.

As the first residential building in the Main District, the high-rise needed to respect the existing two-story retail to the east and single-family residences to the west. Setbacks were introduced on the top five floors, creating substantial terraces and outdoor amenity decks. This design approach minimizes the perception of a continuous 12-story structure and provides residents with a more intimate and private living experience.

Unparalleled exclusivity.

An 8th-floor amenity deck with firepits and sunset views, a second-floor pool deck overlooking an active public plaza, a coworking lounge, and an indoor and outdoor fitness center differentiate the development from others.

New York elegance exuded.

The interior design team addressed the client’s needs for an eye-catching leasing entrance with a high-end “New York” feel by incorporating a classic black-and-white scheme that exudes elegance.
