Warehouse District

Located within the city block bound by S. West Street, W. Martin Street, S. Harrington Street and W. Hargett Street, The Dillon is in the heart of downtown Raleigh’s Warehouse District – downtown Raleigh’s most eclectic area. The Warehouse District is just blocks from the Raleigh Convention Center, Glenwood South, Fayetteville Street and attractions like Red Hat Amphitheater, an outdoor live entertainment venue. With a rich industrial history, the district is undergoing a resurgence and has developed a new identity as an arts and cultural destination. Home to entrepreneurial start-ups, innovative tech space and collaborative work space, this area is also attracting a new generation of office users. Much ongoing development activity is bringing additional jobs and life to this special historic neighborhood.

Nearby Nash Square Park offers plenty of green space and fresh air, while the nearly 20 restaurants and bars within a few block radius provide a multitude of options for dining and entertainment. At Boxcar Bar + Arcade you can play over 50 classic and modern arcade games, pinball, skeeball, air hockey, and shuffleboard, plus a full selection of drinks and many fun events. Crank Arm Brewery is a local craft brewery and tasting room focused on providing fresh artisan beer with a small environmental footprint, utilizing green transportation methods. North Carolina is known for its legendary barbecue joints and The Pit has continued this tradition by serving authentic whole-hog, pit-cooked barbecue using free-range farming practices and the freshest local produce. Going far beyond traditional barbecue offerings with contemporary twists on Southern favorites, The Pit is a downtown Raleigh hotspot. Humble Pie is a New American restaurant that serves a fresh, eclectic menu of food procured from local and specially selected vendors. The warehouse vibe and outdoor patio/tiki bar provide the perfect atmosphere for casual get-togethers and holiday parties.

The business address for Citrix headquarters and HQ Raleigh, the Warehouse District is a proven employment and economic center for Raleigh. With several apartment and condominium options already in the neighborhood and more planned in the near future, including 260 units at The Dillon, this is quickly becoming a desirable address for residents who thrive on living in the center of cultural activity.

Union Station, a new multi-modal transit center directly adjacent to The Dillon, will be completed here in 2017, further connecting tourists and commuters to this historic district. Other transportation and infrastructure improvements are underway, providing easier accessibility to the neighborhood. Many other attractions can be found in the dynamic Warehouse District, with The Dillon to be at the center of it all.

History

Nestled in what is known today as the burgeoning Warehouse District, the building where The Dillon will now stand was once owned by Dillon Supply, an industrial supplies distributor and steel service center that opened its doors in Raleigh more than 100 years ago. Still used in recent years by Dillon Supply for storage of materials, this captivating building is part of downtown Raleigh’s history. Red brick warehouses from a time of warehousing and manufacturing in downtown Raleigh are now repurposed into art galleries, tech work space, restaurants and more. The new multi-use building standing in its place will reflect the history of the Warehouse District, yet stand as a symbol for the reemergence of a neighborhood – bringing people back to live, work and play in this urban environment.

A joint initiative of the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Rail Division and the City of Raleigh, with assistance from GoTriangle, this project will provide further connectivity to downtown Raleigh and specifically the Warehouse District. This important project further signifies the strong commitment to downtown Raleigh and the Warehouse District.
