About North Hills Innovation District
A $1B new multi-phase District, NHID, now underway.
With the mission of bringing together private innovation in technology, life sciences and entrepreneurship with meaningfully scaled Public open space, NHID is the latest District of North Hills to be unveiled. The 33-acre district will offer an unprecedented amount of open natural area (including outdoor working spaces), and bustling, walkable ground level with experiential retail and maker’s spaces, NHID will facilitate interaction and collaboration with a wide range of office users, entrepreneurs, retail tenants, creatives and makers through the urbanization of the traditional Innovation District.
NHID will be constructed in phases. At full build-out, the District will include two high-rise class A office towers and four residential buildings totaling 700,000 SF of office and 1000 residential units, 60,000 SF of ground floor retail space including a two-story Food Hall with Event Space, and 4 acres of outdoor and natural space. Phase 1 of NHID included the Vine North Hills Apartments, which saw its first resident move-ins during the summer of 2020. With the completion of the first project at NHID, plans are underway to begin construction on phase 2 of NHID.
Phase 2 will break ground in 2021, first with Channel House, a 200-unit Class A residential community featuring indoor/outdoor work from home spaces and a room dedicated to music and podcast recording complimented with 13,358 SF of ground level Retail, Micro-retail and maker’s spaces.
Tower 5, an 18-story Class A office building will break ground in Fall 2021 and will be designed to accommodate a mix of traditional tenants, entrepreneurs and start-ups, Tech Transfer Offices and Life Science and Biotechnology.
Also included in Phase 2 will be the expansion of existing structured parking onsite; The Pumphouse, a 1500SF retail jewel box with biergarten outdoor space; and the dedication of land within the District to create new trail connections that tie into the Capital Area Greenway system.
