The historic water tower (2007)The Raleigh Water Tower, an octagonal brick tower originally topped by a water tank with a small two-story office building attached, was built to supply Raleigh's water needs in the late nineteenth century. It became Raleigh's first example of adaptive use of a historic property in 1938 when architect William Henley Dietrick converted it to use as his office. Dietrick eventually protected the structure with covenants and donated it to the N.C. Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, which used the structure as its headquarters office until 2010, when it was purchased by S&A Real Estate. S&A made additional renovations and improvements in 2018, and it is currently leased out as commercial space,
