Facts

  • Despite having been sensitively renovated with its original condition left remarkably intact, and being listed as a Raleigh Historic Site, the Commercial National Bank Building is no more.
  • It was demolished on March 24, 1991 by its last owner, the First Citizens National Bank, to make way for the First Citizens Bank Building, which was never built.
  • It was briefly Raleigh's tallest building until it was surpassed by the Citizens National Bank Building (Security National Bank Building) the following year.
  • Neo-gothic details included pointed-arch doorways and stone-carved heads and gargoyles.
  • The Sanborn Fire Insurance Map indicates a main roof height (excluding the penthouse construction) of 130 feet (40 meters).
  • The RBC Plaza is now proposed for this site.
