Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

The Bulldozer Building


The North Carolina Equipment Rental Building, aka The Bulldozer Building. You can read about it in the news here.

I can give some additional insight into recent developments. The building isn’t going to be knocked down. Bob Young, the CEO of Lulu, has enormous respect for old buildings with character. As such, the building will remain intact. Provided that the city is accomodating, the bulldozer sign itself won’t be heading for the scrapyard.
