The classical-revival front façade of 216 Fayetteville Street (Boylan Pearce) is one of the most instantly recognizable in Raleigh. Originally constructed in 1910 for the Boylan Pearce Department Store, 216 Fayetteville is composed of three above-ground stories and a full basement level, totaling approximately 26,000 rentable square feet. The ~6,500 square foot floor plates are open and flexible to meet the requirements of almost any space user. The building is full of historic character--high ceilings, hardwood floors, plaster walls, plaster ceilings surrounding reinforced concrete structural elements, a central historic stairwell, restored windows, and to-be-opened light wells and side elevation windows. The building underwent an extensive façade and storefront restoration in the last decade, but the rest of the building requires a full shell renovation to modernize building systems and restore the aforementioned interior historic elements. Empire plans to undertake a historic tax credit rehabilitation in 2021/2022.
