Downtown Urban Mixed-Use District
Phase 2 of the Smoky Hollow mixed-use district brings additional office, apartment, restaurant, and retail space to downtown Raleigh. 421 N. Harrington Street is a nine-story office building with loading docks, restaurant, and retail at ground-level. The Line residential complex includes a six-story building, seven-story building, and nine-story parking deck to accommodate 283 apartments and ground-floor amenities.
