Choate Construction and Dominion Realty Partners have broken ground on FNB Tower in downtown Raleigh.

Located at 501 Fayetteville, the 22-story building is being built atop an existing parking deck. The project is designed by Raleigh-based JDavis Architects.

The 420,000-sq.-ft. tower is being built atop an existing parking deck. Exterior elements include a facade with low-emissivity glass, metal skin, and vertical mirror glass fins.

“Downtown Raleigh is home to a rapidly growing population, innovative companies, award winning restaurants, risk-taking entrepreneurs, and amazing cultural institutions, and is also the place where Raleigh comes together and engages as a community,” Raleigh mayor Nancy McFarlane said in a press statement. “The FNB Tower project is a wonderful example of a project that is both reshaping our skyline and adding to the City’s thriving economy. We are excited to have FNB’s regional headquarters in Raleigh.”

Construction has started on the tower, and is scheduled for completion in March 2020. When completed, FNB Tower will be the fourth-tallest building in downtown Raleigh.
