A new addition to the Raleigh, NC skyline is finally coming to fruition. Beginning in 2002, city and county leaders commissioned studies aimed at replacing the aging existing facility with a newer, larger, more modern center. The project is a joint venture effort between TVS and local architects, O'Brien Atkins and Clearscapes. The center is located adjacent to the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts and helps to anchor the downtown cultural district. Currently the project is LEED 2.1 registered and is projected for completion in 2008.
