Faits

  • It succeeded the Mechanics & Farmers Bank Building as the home of North Carolina Mutual.
  • The North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company, founded in 1898, is the oldest and largest African-American owned and managed insurance company in the United States.
  • For many years the headquarters tower was the tallest building in the city.
  • To emphasize the structure's prominence, the building was placed at the highest point on the site.
  • The unusual facade is a stacked series of Vierendeel trusses, each composed of 47 T-shaped and I-shaped precast concrete segments held together with post-tensioning. Each truss is 21 feet high and spans 110 feet, including a 34 foot cantilever at each end.
