The 2011 opening of the CAM Raleigh modern-art museum followed by Citrix Systems’ trendy office in 2014 signaled that change was underway at the downtown Warehouse District. The Dillon, developed by Kane Realty, has accelerated that momentum, and tenants are lining up to be a part of it. Arch Capital will lease four of the office tower’s 18 floors, bringing 365 jobs, while Spaces coworking will take up two floors. Retail tenants include clothing store Urban Outfitters, grocer Weaver Street Market and restaurants O-Ku, Barcelona and Oak Steakhouse. Raleigh-based Stewart moved its headquarters to the Dillon after providing structural and civil engineering and landscape architecture for the project. In all, the complex includes 221,000 square feet of office space, 50,000 square feet of retail and 271 apartments. Parts of the Dillon Supply Warehouse were preserved and incorporated in the structure. The “sky window” on the building’s sloped facade is a distinctive feature.
