North Carolina's National Historic Landmarks This is a list of North Carolina's national historic landmarks. The "Bull Durham Tobacco Factory" was also known as the "Bull Durham Tobacco Factory." It is the highest lighthouse in the United States, standing at 208 feet (63 meters). The Capitol building is included inside the Capitol Area Historic District. It is an example of Greek Revival architecture, and it was built from 1816 to 1841. The dome was added in 1872-1874 after the original one burned down.
The official height of the Capitol has changed over time. The first estimate was that the tower was 40 feet (12 m) high. In 1847, a federal surveyor measured the tower and found it to be 44 feet (13.5 m) tall with a base diameter of 70 feet (21 m). In 1861, after the bombardment of Fort Sumter, an attempt was made to add another floor to the capitol but damage caused by Confederate soldiers prevented this from happening. In 1972, a state survey team estimated the height of the tower at 207 feet (63 m), and in 2006, officials returned to the site with a laser rangefinder and determined that the actual height is 208 feet (63 m).
The district is composed of eight blocks with an overall area of 1.25 square miles (3.1 km2). There are many government buildings in the district including the Supreme Court which is located on Raleigh Street near the center of the district.

Lincoln Financial Structure Since its construction in 1990, the Lincoln Financial Building has been Greensboro's tallest structure. It stands 14 floors and 401 feet high.
The Lincoln Financial Building was designed by the Chicago-based architectural firm of Graham, Anderson, Probst & White and built by Turner Construction Company. When it opened in September 1990, it was one of the first large-scale commercial buildings to be equipped with the "firefly system" which uses laser beams to measure flame spread during a fire.
The building's cost was $80 million at the time it was constructed. At that price tag, it was considered expensive at the time but not particularly so compared with other projects being completed at the time. The Lincoln Financial Building was the first skyscraper to be built in Greensboro in three years and remains the city's tallest building today.
After the Lincoln Financial Building came online, CenterPoint began work on what would become the city's second tallest building. Located just south of the Lincoln Financial Building on Corporate Drive, the CenterPoint Tower was completed in 1997. The CenterPoint Tower stands 45 stories tall and contains 462 rental apartments as well as a few retail spaces.
In 2010, CenterPoint completed its third skyscraper in Greensboro.

One Canada Square is a skyscraper in London's Docklands area. It is one of several high-rise buildings constructed during Docklands' development in the late 1990s and early 21st century. Standing at 165 m (541 ft), it is the tallest building in Canary Wharf and within the City of London limits. The Canadian-born architect Robert A. M. Stern created this glass structure which resembles an iceberg with its core in the south facing docklands. Its 23 floors contain 533 apartments, a roof garden, a gym, a wading pool, a children's play area and a number of other facilities for residents to use.
The building was completed in 2003 and became the second highest point in the London area after the Shard. Its opening drew criticism from some members of the Parliament of England because they believed that the money could have been better spent on health or education rather than building projects.
