Groundbreaking set for July with a 2018 completion.

This building looks awesome. Raleigh really has some quality projects going up.

^ This was all over on the national news this morning and that fire looked quite scary especially with the crane collapsing !

Is it normal to have multi story buildings built solely out of wood in Raleigh / N.C. ?

It's normal in most places.

Not terribly uncommon to have them burn like this, as they're very vulnerable during this phase of construction before they're sealed up, fire retardant materials put in, and sprinklers functioning. Combine that with welding and blowtorches that can generate sparks, and you have a chance to smoldering that goes unnoticed until everyone leaves for the day and then takes off.
