North Carolina's Tallest Building - December 1926 to April 1929

Built by the owner of Nissen Wagon Works. According to Heather Fearnbach, construction started in January of 1926 and the building was completed in that same year. This building had a miniture golf course in the basement when it opened.

William and Ida Nissen lived in an apartment on the 18th floor of the Nissen Building until 1954. Original office tenants included the Office of Flying Safety, Civil Service Administration Region 4 Headquarters, and the Veterans Administration. The Western Electric Company also leased several floors of the building for executive offices. It was converted from office space to apartments in 2005 by Historic Restoration Inc.
