The Dillon Residences


Clancy & Theys Construction Company provided construction management for The Dillon Residences.

The Dillon Residences are the premier urban living environment in the Warehouse District of downtown Raleigh. This unique 271-unit apartment community includes two separate buildings on either side of W. Hargett Street. The housing element on the southern site connects to a parking deck and mixed-use office tower simply called The Dillon. That project has incorporated two masonry walls from a mid-century warehouse into the office tower. The apartments have been designed and constructed to aesthetically blend with the 1960s warehouse by incorporating brick masonry primarily with Hardie Plank and metal panel highlights.

Both apartment buildings have five-stories of wood-frame construction over a steel podium with a concrete slab. Total square footage of both buildings is 313,100 and includes ground-level restaurant/retail totaling 25,000 SF. Amenities include an elevated courtyard with pool, a clubroom, and a fitness area.

The project as a whole requires a great deal of coordination above and beyond the challenges faced on a construction project on tight urban site. Why? The southern apartment building ties into the parking desk integrated within an office tower further south on the sight. The entire project has one owner, two designers, two contractors and various engineers. Add in the coordination with city inspectors and this truly is a testament to the power of teamwork and coordination.

The Dillon Apartments project was one that presented challenges of a tight, urban site shared by multiple contractors, unique structural design, and a fast-paced schedule… The project completed both buildings on time and within budget. Kane Realty will continue to see Clancy & Theys as a valued construction partner…
