227 Fayetteville St.
Designed in 1961 and built in 1962-1965, the 9-story bank, extends 210 feet deep and features vertical panels of marble and concrete that accentuate its height. It is cited in the Fayetteville Street National Register Historic District as one of several mid-20th century modernist buildings along Raleigh’s principal business street. This was one of several banks the Odell firm designed for Wachovia, a bank founded in Winston-Salem which became one of the largest in the state until its merger with another bank and the termination of its historic name.
