TOWERS OF RALEIGH
This section will be dedicated to all the high-rises and taller mid-rises of Raleigh. Hardly a city known for its skyscrapers, Raleigh is slowly becoming a more attractive place to build vertical. While mostly focused on smaller towers (around 15 stories), Raleigh is beginning to create opportunities for something more. In this section of RaleighMSA.com I will present the towers that create Raleigh's skyline, along with some information - it will be a future addition.
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 the city's existing collection of towers and the individual perception.
Mid-rises: Defined as any building between 6 and 14 stories high. Again, this description is subjective to our own perception and cannot be used as an official definition of a mid-rise.
