The Eastern Named Grand Winner, High Rise, in 2023 MFE Awards

Kane Realty Corporation (KRC), a leader in innovative urban development and placemaking, is proud to announce that The Eastern Residences at North Hills has been named the Grand Winner in the High-Rise category of the 2023 Multifamily Executive (MFE) Awards. Designed to celebrate the multifamily industry’s top people, projects, and programs, the MFE Awards received nearly 240 nominations from across the nation this year.

Jurors of the 2023 MFE Awards praised The Eastern for redefining luxury living in Raleigh, which has consistently ranked as one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. With this growth, increased demand emerged for high-rise luxury apartment buildings comparable to those found in major markets like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. When The Eastern opened in April 2022, it surpassed all expectations due to its elevated finishes, vast amenities package, and 24-hour concierge services.

“We are extremely honored to receive this prestigious recognition from Multifamily Executive,” said Rob Reid, KRC’s Managing Director of Residential. “The Eastern is the incredible result of over five years of passionate persistence and collaboration between our development, construction, and property management teams, along with our talented partners.” Atlanta-based Smallwood served as the architectural firm for The Eastern, while Balfour Beatty was the general contractor.

The Eastern’s studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes are nearly 90% leased, with limited availability remaining. Availability is also limited for The Eastern’s uniquely crafted collection of penthouse residences located on the top three residential floors, which feature additional upgraded features such as premium gas ranges, sub-zero refrigerators, and primary bathrooms with drop-in tubs and walk-in showers.
