saving buildings on this corner is abysmal. This building is rated "orange" by the city which means that any permit for demolition would be put on a 90 day hold status while it is determined whether or not the building has any historic value to stop any pending demolition.
According to this, the building is one of two on the northside that feature "Egyptian Revival" architecture that was all the rage in the 1920's so it has significant architectural value.
