About The Event

Please join us for our April program where members of the design, construction, and ownership team will tour the Dillon project and talk about the design of the project, the collaboration efforts required on a project with two architectural teams and two construction teams, the owners vision and what all parties learned from the process.


The proposed Dillon Supply mixed-use project includes three buildings with a total of 256 residential units, 214,000 square feet of office space, 39,000 square feet of retail, and 1,030 parking spaces. Located in the Warehouse District of Downtown Raleigh - specifically the site of the Dillon Supply Warehouse - it will preserve parts of the exterior façade of the existing warehouse building to serve as a connection to the history of the area.

The southern building (across from the Contemporary Art Museum and Union Station), being designed in conjunction with Duda Paine Architects, includes the existing warehouse façade to be preserved, ground floor retail, roughly 980-parking-space cast-in-place parking garage, with eight stories of office building tower starting at the 9th floor, and a public roof terrace overlooking downtown Raleigh. On the same block adjacent to the parking structure, J Davis architects and Stewart are designing two mixed-use residential buildings for the project which include 167 residential units on a podium above ground floor retail and leasing office. A third residential building is located across Hargett Street (across from Citrix) with 89 residential units above a podium with ground floor retail, scissor ramp parking for approximately 50 spaces below the podium.

The existing Dillon Supply Building was surveyed with laser scanning. This survey was used to determine to what extent the existing building would remain and to update their existing documentation with great accuracy and ease.
