Posted July 19, 2006 8:11 a.m. EDT

— The City of Raleigh Planning Commission gave its approval to RBC Centura for its new high-rise in downtown Raleigh.

On Monday, the Commission decided to support the 400-foot tall RBC Centura building that the bank wants to build at the corner of Martin and Fayetteville Streets.

At 29 stories - it will be one of the city's tallest structures.

The plan now goes to Raleigh City Council for a final decision next Tuesday. If approved, construction could start by fall.

The new tower would include shops, restaurant, parking deck and condominiums as well as offices for the bank.
