Tower History

The tower was built by the former Wachovia Bank as its new headquarters. As an early-1960s urban renewal project the construction of the building ended the drought of major downtown building projects in Winston-Salem that started with the Great Depression.

In the mid-1960s, it was the tallest building in North Carolina and the southeast. The building is a landmark in downtown Winston-Salem. It occupies prime downtown real estate and a full city block. Wachovia vacated the building in the mid-1990s.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001 as the Wachovia Building, it was purchased in 2003 and reopened as Winston Tower, the name that appeared on the tower for almost two decades, prior to Truliant’s distinctive name and sunburst. The building is visible from Silas and Peters Creek Parkways, U.S. 52, and other city landmarks, and serves as a centerpiece of the Winston-Salem skyline.
