Issue Background and Overview:
The South Bank building, which sits at the Five Points intersection downtown, was built in 1974. The building, which is surrounded by parking, has poor siting. Additionally, the massing of the building is inconsistent with the surrounding area. However, in a time when 70’s era buildings are being torn down without a second thought, the building is worthy of preserving.
