Duda|Paine Architects, Kane Realty Corporation Celebrate One North Hills Topping-Out

The new Class-A office tower reaches a construction milestone

Feb 15, 2023

Raleigh, NC (February 15, 2023)— Duda|Paine Architects, a premiere international design firm, celebrates the topping-out of the new Class-A office project, One North Hills. The 10-story office tower is immersed in Raleigh’s mixed-use North Hills Main District, by developer Kane Realty Corporation. General contractor Brasfield & Gorrie marked a construction milestone at the topping-out celebration, completing the vertical structure by placing the last beam.

Featuring 266,000 square feet of office space, the dynamic design speaks both to its prominent location on the I-440 Beltline and to the intimate, human scale experienced within North Hills. The building presents an iconic moment along the Beltline with an expansive angled glass volume, which leans out to invite passersby. One North Hills Tower includes ground-floor retail and a generous 2-story lobby connected to various lounge and meeting spaces, conference and pre-function space and a grand terrace.

“The modern design of One North Hills respects the mixed-use district’s pedestrian-paced environment,” said J. Scott Shell, Principal at Duda|Paine Architects. “Interior spaces include features to meet the growing need for office space that enhances people’s day-to-day work experience with amenities focused on health and well-being.”

“One of the highlights of this project is that we have the unique opportunity to develop on an urban infill site, replacing underutilized parking areas with vertical density – meaning a more efficient and thoughtful use of space,” said Kallie Walker, senior development manager for Kane Realty Corporation. “This is precisely how successful smart cities are growing today, and we are excited about what this means for the future of North Hills and all of Raleigh.”

One North Hills will be Duda|Paine Architects’ third project in Kane Realty’s North Hills, joining Advance Auto Parts Tower and Bank of America Tower to further expand a dynamic mixed-use environment for workers, residents and visitors.
