Dominion Resources: New High-rise Building Planned for Downtown

Recommended Posts


It looks so good from 7th Street (too bad traffic flows away from the building).  Really soaring and uplifting. It has singlehandedly dragged downtown into the 21st century. 

More of this please!

Wow, now it makes an impact!  I am liking the Wells Fargo tower lighting as well.

I was told by someone in the fire department that there are tentative plans to demolish the old Dominion tower in October of this year.  "Soft demo" should begin in June.  They said the building will be imploded.  No word on what will replace it yet.

This is the most definite tentative thing to happen. 

The way it was told to me was that they had begun applying for the permits needed for the demolition / explosives already.  So it's a strong definitely maybe.

The old Dominion tower is definitely coming down.   I know you can't say "trust me" on the internet and have it mean anything, but trust me. 

If you want to check my post history, note that I was 100% right about the two towers design.

Will the second tower be a slightly shorter near twin (as shown in renderings)  or a similar complimenting tower? I almost think a similar but not exact twin would be preferable, aesthetically. (Think One and Two Liberty Places in Philadelphia).

It is supposed to be 2 floors shorter, if I recall properly (may be 4), though may have changed since.

I got word that the implosion of the OJRP is delayed...could be early next year before the implosion happens.

OJRP*?

I actually kind of wish they'd just build the tower on the lot to the west of the first. I'll miss the old Dominion tower. Glad the street engagement will be getting better though

Many of us were concerned on how the massing of this tower would appear in the skyline.  The tapering crown gives the tower a more balanced look.  Our "fat lady" looks gorgeous.

Is the new Dominion tower a single tenant building?

As far as I know...yes!

Yes with the exception of 2 small street level retail spaces fronting Cary. 

Any retail tenants?

Not yet. I walked by yesterday and the construction fencing is down on that side, but interior work is still going on for those retail spaces. I haven't seen anything out there about tenants that have signed on.
