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

What Used to be the Tallest Buildings in Town

In the foreground are Capital Bank Plaza and the Durham Life Insurance Building, (aka “The Superman Building“), which were at different points in time the tallest buildings in Raleigh. The Durham Life Building reigned as the tallest from the 1940s until the BB&T Building (later Capital Bank Plaza) was built in 1965. The view here is seen from what is currently the tallest building, RBC Plaza.
