The R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company was a prominent economic component and employer in Winston Salem during the twentieth century. The company headquarters building—built in the late 1920s—was iconic, and the inspiration for the Empire State Building. Following the decline of the tobacco industry, the building wasn’t used, but today, the inside has been refurbished as a hotel.
Architects have cited the Reynolds Building, which opened in 1929 as the tobacco company's headquarters, as \"one of the best examples of art deco skyscraper design. \" Developers will spend $50 million turning the 22-story building into 120 apartments on the upper floors and a 211-room hotel on the lower ones. The building will reopen in 2016.
