North Hills Raleigh Senior Living

The Cardinal at North Hills has broken ground! Located in the vibrant North Hills Midtown District, this new full continuum senior living community will be steps away from a variety of restaurants, shopping and entertainment options. Go out or stay in – your home at the Cardinal will offer not only spacious, beautifully appointed residences but a warm, inviting community to share with family and friends, discover new passions and create The Art of Living WellSM on your terms.

Redefining senior living

The Cardinal at North Hills will be Raleigh’s first licensed CCRC offered in a pay as you go format.  A simple monthly fee is based on the type of residence you select and also provides priority access to state-of-the-art assisted living, memory care and nursing care in an on-site health center directly connected to the community.  No large entrance fee or purchase of an equity interest in your residence is needed to enjoy life at The Cardinal.

The design of The Cardinal has been shaped by extensive input and ideas from future residents to reflect the best of their existing homes, lifestyles and ideas for the future.  A 35,000 square foot club house is directly accessed from the residence buildings as well as the secure underground parking garage.  Understanding that food is a kind of social currency, the clubhouse features multiple dining venues.   A bistro/café will offer full display cooking where you can watch demonstrations, take a cooking class or have a gourmet lunch with friends. The tavern and adjacent outdoor terrace is the perfect place to meet for cocktails before a sumptuous dinner in the Veranda dining room with views of the main garden.  You can have your extended family over for a party or celebration in the “Great Room”, a combination residential kitchen and family room similar to a single family home.  For social, spiritual and vocational experiences there will be a large gathering room, non denominational chapel, theater, art studio, library and card room with wet bar.   On the garden level there is a fully equipped fitness center and spa complex with an indoor pool, strength training room, tai chi/yoga/dance studio, massage and treatment rooms and full service salon.  Outside is the main garden with walking paths, yoga lawn and outdoor kitchen with grills and prep area.  If a more strenuous hike is your aim, the North Hills greenbelt runs the full length of St. Albans Drive and connects to the Crabtree Creek trail system. 

In town yet apart, The Cardinal offers everything in this special North Hills setting.  As you continue this rewarding chapter in your life, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle with a sense of security for the future..  Learn more >

Built to last

The Cardinal at North Hills will utilize the best quality, environmentally friendly building design and materials.  The structural frame is steel and concrete with high quality windows and doors to ensure a quiet, solid building.  A central heating and cooling system provides quiet, energy efficient comfort throughout the community.  Large windows with high efficiency glass allow abundant natural light while blocking harmful glare and heat.  State-of-the-art elevators reduce energy use while providing quick access to all parts of the community including direct access from assigned, under building parking directly to the residences.  As long term owners and operators of senior living communities, Kisco and the Raleigh based design and construction team is putting our extensive collective experience to bear to make The Cardinal a strong, enduring environment that will be a source of pride for our residents for years to come.

Lifestyle options

The Cardinal will offer a full continuum of senior lifestyle options from Independent Living to Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Skilled Nursing.

Wellness is our lifestyle

In keeping with Kisco’s award-winning “The Art of Living WellSM” philosophy, wellness of the mind, body, and spirit will be infused into every aspect of life at The Cardinal.  The fabric of this community will encourage a celebration of each new day, as well as a sense of assurance for tomorrow. Welcome to your enriched future as a member of The Cardinal, a unique senior living lifestyle unlike any other.
