Raleigh approves plan for five-story Hillsborough high-rise
Posted February 6, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Raleigh City Council voted unanimously Tuesday on a revision for a planned Hillsborough Street apartment building.
Developers initially wanted to build the Stanhope project, at Hillsborough and Concord streets, to 86 feet and seven stories high. In a concession to neighborhood opposition, they reduced the height to 79 feet and five stories to get the council approval.
The building is part of a three-section Master Plan for the area, and it would be on the same visual level as the 74-foot Kerr Drugs building proposed for Hillsborough Street and Friendly Drive.
