The first apartment building built west of the North Carolina State University campus, the Wilmont Apartments takes its name from the subdivision located directly to the north. Daniel Allen, the real estate entrepreneur who developed the Wilmont, Hayes-Barton, and Mordecai neighborhoods, and builder C.C. Pierce constructed the Wilmont in 1926. The four-story U-plan building features Spanish Colonial-influenced details, including a stepped parapet with a green tile ornamental roof, an arched parapet piercing the tile roof at the center of each bay, and brick arches. The central bay has a concrete panel with the word "Wilmont" carved into it. Private residences.
