The residents tower will be phase 2 . The plans have changed & the new plans from the new owner has just submitted new site plans for the office/hotel tower .
What the…? If it’s staying at the 20 stories, why a resubmital?
Sorry, clueless in DTR…Lol
Glad to see a new office tower get going! (assuming plans work out). There’s so much momentum for companies moving into the downtown area, so I’m sure developers are keen to get these projects going pronto. It’s really good for the tax base as well.
And the residential components are sure to follow. A new 250’ tower? I’m down with that!
They just need to get started. All these projects in development but no real construction just yet. Is there going to be a point in 2020 or 2021 where there’s 15-20 cranes hanging over Downtown Raleigh?
Let’s hope so. One just came available from the Peace project

Some interesting looking renderings over at the latest appearance commission agenda. Here are just a few.
That’s a nice looking complex. I find it interesting that the first (overhead) picture depicts 400H rather than the current buildings.
are they saving the oaks on hillsborough st??
It surprises me how often glaring mistakes are made on presentations. That’s not the NW corner of the Capital District.
So from the 2nd and 3rd images it looks as if two towers are going up first? They’re coloured in while the SW tower is not.
Good catch on that. Seems to be the case. I know the initial tower that renderings were released for was the office tower. I’m assuming the second tower is residential since no hotel brand has been named yet as part of the project.
Nevermind looks like Dwight answered that earlier. Phase 2 tower will be residential. Though after looking at the full PDF in the agenda, I’m not sure both are going to be going up at the same time. I’m assuming the office tower is going up first and will be slightly taller then the other two. 263ft. I like the designs of all the 3 buildings.
City Municipal block is shown at full build out as well. Shows how dense this area will be.
Very dense. The buildings should be somewhat similar in height too. Should be an interesting grouping.
263’ to the top of penthouse according to 3rd rendering
Actually, after looking through the full gallery of renderings, I see my mistake. The main wall of each building is coloured according to the district of downtown which it faces. The colour of the residential building just isn’t shown in that image. Here’s what I mean:
Also, here’s a few additional renderings:
At 263 feet tall, this will be similar in height to the Skyhouse at 264. The Flying Saucer will feel tiny after both phases are complete. They also included 5 retail spaces on all four sides of the development. This development along with N&O will create destination locations within themselves and increase foot traffic for each district. For those curious Phase 1 will be the office and Phase 2 will be Hotel and Residential.
“South Herrington St.”
Good catch that they depict 401H in the upper left of the overview street diagram.
With 301H, 401H, and the round hotel, this will be quite the cluster.
It’s interesting that the round hotel, at 239 ft, was the tallest building in Raleigh from 1969-1977. So this part of town is use to being high profile.
And now the area is filling in with towers that are taller than that former record holder!
