The Dillon

Completed in 2018, The Dillon includes an 18-story office tower with retail space and two, six-story apartment buildings with an adjoining parking deck. The Dillon makes up an entire 2.5-acre city block bound by S. West Street, W. Martin Street, S. Harrington Street and W. Hargett Street. At street level, the building complements the surrounding historic neighborhood and from a distance assumes a monumental presence in downtown Raleigh’s skyline. The building is anticipated to receive LEED® Gold certification.
