Major Buildings of Raleigh
This section will serve as a showcase of all the major buildings that currently stand in Raleigh, both in the
high-rise and mid-rises of Raleigh. Hardly a city known for its skyscrapers, Raleigh has become a decent blend of
older and newer buildings, some of which are very attractive and worth preserving. In the recent years, Raleigh
is slowly becoming a more attractive place for developers to go vertical.
While mostly a skyline consisting of buildings around 15 stories, a new pattern has emerged and Raleigh is beginning to attract visions way beyond the norm. In this section of RaleighMSA.com I will present all the major buildings in the City of Oaks, along with some information - it will be a future addition. I encourage you to return, as this page will be updated to include new features.
High-rises: For the purpose of classifying Raleigh's towers, we have defined high-rises as buildings of 15 stories and above. Anything above 350 feet qualifies as a skyscraper; according to RaleighMSA.com's classification. For insurance purposes, companies like Aviva may have their own definitions. Definitions vary based on a city's existing collection of buildings and an individual's perception of what constitutes a high-rise.
Mid-rises: Defined as any building between 6 and 14 stories high. Again, this description is subjective to our own opinion and should not be used as an official definition of a mid-rise.
