One of the most eye-catching buildings in the neighborhood, the multi-story Forum 1 business center is situated in a premier north Raleigh business community. Set among abundant trees, extensive landscaping and seasonal flowers, this steel, concrete and granite building makes a real impact. The area is home to a wide range of technology and life science companies. In addition to hi-tech and biotech research, key industries include financial services, energy, clothing, food processing and paper products. This thriving city - one of the fastest-growing in the country - is the seat of North Carolina's government. Several major education institutions are here, and Raleigh's highly educated workforce proudly boasts more bachelor degrees (or higher) than almost anywhere else in the country. The Forum 1 business center is less than a mile from I-540 and under 15 minutes from world-famous Research Triangle Park, and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).
