An Example For Downtown Property Owners
Rick Howa, I'm looking at you. Regarding City Center Storage, 230 South 500 West, this is from Heather May at the Tribune: Artspace bought City Center in 1997 and, until now, has continued to run it as a storage facility. It would have been cheaper for Norie to demolish the warehouse and start over than to renovate it. Even an appraisal found the land was worth more without the brick structure. But that didn't sway her. "Saving these buildings - if everyone tears them down, we have no history. This is the original ZCMI warehouse. To lose this building would just be a shame," she says. True.
