FNB Tower 401 S Graham St

Podium style buildings (Midrise/Highrise) are just more cost effective to build (far as money & time) than buildings with subterranean parking structures.  Those are also a type of Podium structure but doing anything underground just costs more.

I suspect the aforementioned massive deck will be sold for development in the next 5 years. 

They just have spent the better part of the last 6-8 months refurbishing this deck.  Work continues.

When Duke moves into their new tower this deck is like 3 blocks away and I do agree I think this deck will be gone or sold in 5 years.  Duke will have their own deck with the new tower.  when it was built Duke needed parking and this was the FAR edge of uptown and was  built also to provide parking for the Ericsson stadium aka BofA Stadium.

Is the Duke parking garage always full?  I am kind of curious that it wasn't somehow connected to the project.

Personally I think the fact that they were unable to lease back spaces for their tower from Duke and had to build their own deck shows that there might be future plans for this deck to no longer exist.

That is what I was thinking as well.

I could see it going away, or Tepper buying it for gameday parking and leasing it the rest of the year to uptown workers and residents. I have nothing to back this idea up other than it's well known that the Panthers want more parking, and this is by far the largest parking deck that they could potentially purchase with room to spare.

I personally hope that it goes away.

It's a mural.

Then I guess it’s staying forever cause the parking deck is going to block and prevent someone to remove it lol
