Originally constructed in 1915 as a Citizens National Bank, this unique 8,782 square foot building was carefully renovated in 2015. In addition to the excellent location, the property features Neoclassical architectural details such as terrazzo floors, high ceilings, huge windows, tons of natural light, and heavy marble columns. This stunning asset is ideal for an owner-occupant or an investor looking to own an iconic asset in rapidly growing downtown Durham.
The property possesses all of the characteristics of Neoclassical architecture. Most notably are its grandeur of scale, simplicity of geometric form, Greek detail, dramatic use of columns, and a preference for blank walls. The building is constructed of masonry and stone. In 1970 the building was converted into law offices. This conversion, unfortunately, involved removal of all of the large windows and filling the openings with similar, but slightly different color stone. In 2015 the owners restored the beautiful arching, multi-paned windows, to match the original building design. Additionally, they worked meticulously to uncover and restore to their former glory the terrazzo floors and the detailed ceilings.
There is ample parking around the building, as well as a public parking deck located immediately behind the building. Monthly parking is available in adjacent garage for building tenants.
