::Old EPA Building In RTP Being Torn Down

From Raleigh Chronicle Staff & Wire Reports
Friday June 8, 2007

RTP - Old Environmental Protection Agency building in Research Triangle Park known to many as "the fortress" for its daunting walls and slit windows is in the process of being torn down.

D.H. Griffin wrecking crews from Raleigh have already started taking down some of the back areas of the complex and have blocked off the building from the road.

Located at the intersection of Highway 54 and Alexander Drive, the large building has sat empty since the EPA moved to its mammoth new complex further down Alexander Drive several years ago.

According to a real estate developer in Research Triangle Park, the property is jointly owned by the state and federal government and as such, was not listed on North Carolina's surplus property list to be sold.

The property was marketed to be rented as office space under the name of the "Triangle Life Science Center" but there were no takers for the expansive but somewhat dungeon-like building that was a product of an earlier time before large windows were the norm in offices.

Ironically, according to the source, the former EPA property also has some environmental contamination issues at the site due chemical residues from EPA tests that were performed at the property. ::
