Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, North Hills is a mixed-use shopping area. North Hills spans roughly 100 acres of the Midtown district. It began as North Hills Mall, which opened in 1967 and was the first enclosed two-level mall in Raleigh. In 2003, with the exception of JC Penney and the parking deck, the entire North Hills Mall closed and was torn down. It was rebuilt as an open air center.

Kane Realty Corporation turned the North Hills Mall and the surrounding area into the mixed-use community that it has become. As a mixed-use area, North Hills offers shopping, dining, movies, events, office spaces, residential areas, and hotels.

Alane's, Lamb's Ear, Oh Baby!, Elaine Miller Collection, The Spectacle, Quintessentials & Divine Collections, Vanity, McKenzie Tribe, Liles Clothing Studio, Fantasia, Vermillion, and Tyler House.
