Raleigh may be getting a new bar on a rooftop that is 11 stories high.

The city approved developers to build Powerhouse Plaza at the intersection of West and Jones streets -- across the street from 42nd Street Oyster Bar.

The property will have retail on ground level, five floors of hotel rooms and five floors of office space.

A 54-hundred sq. ft. bar will go on the building's rooftop.

The developer says construction could start this fall and he hopes to be finished in the spring of 2010.
