Renters are moving into the new 400H tower in downtown Raleigh, and the finished building they are stepping into matches closely to renderings shared years ago.

Driving the news: The 400H building — which has more than 240 apartments and 150,000 square feet of office — opened last month after two years of construction.

  • It was developed by Trammel Crow and the Raleigh-based real estate firm HM Partners.

Why it matters: 400H is one of several buildings that have turned HIllsborough Street from a collection of low-slung buildings into a row of high-rise towers.

  • The buildings on Hillsborough Street, including Pendo tower and the Bloc83 towers, have contributed significantly to the expansion of Raleigh's skyline out from Fayetteville Street and are helping connect Glenwood South to the rest of downtown.

What we're watching: Those buildings were planned before the pandemic and are still trying to attract more office users.
