We’re lucky to be located so close to Research Triangle Park—it means there are constantly interesting conversations and innovations happening right in our neighborhood. But while changing the world can be taxing, choosing where to live should be painless. Below, we break down the top five reasons why life at Alta Blu could be good for your career and your mental health.

1. It’s a breeze to get to work.

Alta Blu enjoys immediate access to 40E, so in just 9 miles (or about 12 minutes) door-to-door you’ll be at your desk. Meaning you can roll out of bed, grab some caffeine from our coffee bar and clock in at work in under a half hour—giving new meaning to the phrase get-up-and-go.

2. ...but it’s also easy to get away.

Office convenience is key, but at Blu we’re always advocating for better work-life balance. So while we are close to the Park, we’re also close to real parks (you know, the nature-filled ones!) that are just waiting for you to explore. If you’re a city person, we’re minutes from downtown Chapel Hill’s leisurely streets, shops and restaurants. If the great outdoors is more your thing, we’re a short drive to Jordan Lake, where you can swim, camp and fish to your heart’s content.

3. Blu was built for creativity.

When we designed Alta Blu, we did it with people like you in mind. We wanted to create spaces that would be great for reading, studying, concepting and collaborating. Come for a site visit and check out the work pods in our business center—they’re the best place to get things done when you don’t feel like leaving home. And when you need to recharge, try taking a lap in the saltwater pool or a spin at the ballet bar—whatever gets those juices flowing!

4. Your friends live here.

Every day, more and more people who work at RTP are making Alta Blu their home. That means you’ll likely be neighbors with interesting folk who are also innovating in their field. Perhaps a conversation over the fire pit will lead to a fruitful partnership or your next big idea. We can’t guarantee it, but we’re certainly rooting for it.

5. The price is right.

We have great deals on leasing right now for our research friends. Contact our team so we can help you find the apartment that suits you best. Or swing by for a tour! We’re here until 6pm during the week and until 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays to show you around. Until then, keep up the good work, RTP fam!
