Raleigh City Council has approved a rezoning request to allow construction of a 40-story tower, which will become the city’s tallest building.
The rezoning of the site originally permitting 20-story structures gives the go-ahead for retail shops, offices, and as many as 2,425 residential spaces.
“Several of these 40-story zoning cases have come in front of us and every one of them has got approved. I think we’re nearing the time where it’s time to look at downtown zoning and send a more definite signal that this is where we want tall building,” the broadcaster quoted city councilman Patrick Buffkin as saying.
A construction starting date hasn’t been announced.
