FNB Tower (Charter Square)


#101

16 and a half floors to go. Positive change once it’s done.


#102


#103

Some photos from my “smoke break.”


#104

Will this building be concrete the whole way up, or will they switch over to steel at some point? Steel goes up much faster than concrete. Still, looking forward to this addition, just wish it were 5 or 10 floors taller :slight_smile:


#105

(guess) It’ll be concrete all the way up

Leo, give me a heads up next time and I’ll do my hair and wave for the camera. :stuck_out_tongue:


#106

Thanks Leo, that really fills the void on lower Fayetteville. Handsome building except for the top.


#107

Thanks Leo ! Love This Project !

@dtraleigh
Thank you Leo!
Looks like you enjoyed your smoke break…:blush:
It’s not just being in DTR. It’s having a camera and knowing how to use it, which you obviously do, to the appreciation of all! :heart:

Looks like FNB Raleigh is up to the 6th floor.

It’s exciting to get some nice height back in to the downtown core!


#110

Are my eyes that bad? Lol…
I only count 5…:thinking:


#111

They are building the floor of the 6th floor…


#112

Lol I think that’s the roof of the 5th floor. Tomato tomatoe


#113

There’s only one roof. :wink:


#114

Was driving around downtown last night daydreaming of what’s to come and realized that at 6 stories, FNB is almost as tall as Charter Square is at 10 stories - now this could be my bad eyesight in the dark (and using my fingers to “expand” it 4 more floors) but… getting closer to 10 stories, it’s hard to believe it would then be DOUBLE that height. That would be massive! Is it more likely that once they start building the residential floors, the floor to ceiling height will decrease drastically?? Or is this really going to be as massive as my imagination is letting me believe? Have they actually announced the official projected height, or has everyone on here just estimated? Because I’m thinking this thing could end up well above 300ft.


#115

The distance from slab to slab on the residential part is less than the office floors. It will be noticeable.


#116

The official height will be 316ft. Still the fourth tallest in Raleigh!


#117

Wishful thinking on my part then! Still happy to have something in the 300-399ft range - finally! A few more of these would be better to me than one single supertall, at least in the near future.


#118

I’d much rather have a few more of this size than have a single
700 footer.


#119

I would rather have BOTH… :grinning:


#120

…and if you were forced to choose one or the other?
Also, when does a few become several???:thinking:
