FNB Tower (Charter Square)

It looks like a half-baked design element. From what I can see in the pictures, that part of the curtain wall has a unique mullion pattern, so the architects chose to distinguish it further by extending the curtain wall past either edge of the building.

Doesn’t really work here imo, because it’s too subtle and seems like an afterthought. This works well if integrated into the overall concept of the building. Example: 200 4th street in Nashville, where the glass is meant to be an expression of four pages of sheet music.

What else would he kneel on?

And when he falls, and the rope saves his life initially, he’s swing his head into the side wall of the building or through the glass, and it will kill him.

I’m seeing that the grand opening of the tower is scheduled for Dec 4. :grinning:

Same here the 2 bed/2bath, 1/3 the space and over 4 times mortgage. Much as I would like to live downtown Raleigh, it’s not going to happen. :sob:

Wait, the building opens in two weeks or the plaza area? It just seems way ahead of schedule for that.

Dec 4th it was reported here

Wow…3 grand+ for a two bedroom apartment! That’s, um, pretty insane. It’s going to be interesting to see how fast/slow these rent.

So FNB has lost naming rights for some reason and so the building isn’t currently named, I’ll might end up having other info on this building since it’s Thanksgiving and my grandfather who worked on this is here today!
