News posted Jan. 10, 2019 - 3:35 pm | updated Jan 23, 2019

The City of Raleigh is hosting three identical information sessions to introduce the first phase of the Civic Campus Master Plan. The first phase will be a 20-story tower located on the southeast corner of 110 S. McDowell Street, the corner of Hargett and McDowell Streets.

Other features of the new civic tower include enhanced security, larger city council chambers, and efficient office space, housing staff from six downtown buildings. The Raleigh Municipal Building and the parking deck will remain on the site, with services continuing during construction. This civic tower will consolidate city staff and customer services into one location.

The public is invited to attend one of these meetings to learn more about the future of Raleigh’s facilities that will consolidate Raleigh government services and administration. City staff will present a summary of these plans and answer questions about the project.

Two of the three information sessions have already occured. One information session is remaining:

  • Thursday, Jan. 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Raleigh Convention Center, 500 S. Salisbury St., Room 305A
