Here’s the Latest on 2304 Hillsborough Street Apartments

2304 Hillsborough is one of the brand new apartments that’s popped up near NC State’s Main Campus. This building is located at 2304 Hillsborough Street, in between Jimmy John’s and the former Sugar Magnolia boutique on the spot where Hot Box Pizza (and before that, Sylvia’s Pizza) stood.

CHASS majors, you’ll love this place. It’s the closest you can possibly live to Tompkins, Caldwell, and Winston Hall — right across the street.

A Brief Timeline of 2304 Hillsborough’s Development

This place has been under construction since August 2015. Naturally, there’s been a lot of progress between demolishing the 1-story pizza joint and building the 5-story apartment building.

So here’s a brief overview of everything that’s happened, with pictures. (But to be honest, we just wanted a reason to keep all the pictures we’ve taken of the building.)

We dug deep into City of Raleigh development plans to find the details about this apartment building. It’s been under construction since August 2015, but although the sign on the building says “Fall 2016,” it’s looking like 2304 Hillsborough will be completed November 2017.
