Seaboard Station, a large apartment and retail development building in downtown Raleigh, has added two new restaurants.

The latest: Developer Hoffman & Associates said Monday that Omakase by Kai, led by chef James Chung, will open an omakase-style restaurant in the bottom of the future Hyatt House hotel.

  • The 3,000-square-foot restaurant is expected to open in August.

Palm Berries, an acai chain started in Denver, North Carolina, will open its first Triangle location in Seaboard, Hoffman added.

  • The 1,300-square-foot store will be the chain's sixth in the state. It is expected to open in December.

The big picture: Washington, D.C.-based Hoffman is betting big on downtown Raleigh, building Seaboard Station along Peace Street and the Union West tower next to Raleigh Union Station.

  • Seaboard is a $500 million project that will add hundreds of apartments, retail space and a hotel across three different phases of construction. Already one apartment building has opened, with the Hyatt House and another apartment set to be finished this summer.
  • The intense construction has caused some existing retailers to complain about falling foot traffic and sales in the area.

Flashback: Seaboard previously announced three tenants: Biscuit Belly, The Yard Milkshake Bar and the Eye Institute.
