I remember when that building went up. So many mixed emotions. The hatred of bringing a highrise to WC the fact that it was a BofA which was recently purchased by A-rabs. then there was the lit up giant peace sign that was attqached to the side - that everyone adored.

It was not a BofA but Pete Starks bank Security National. At bit of history, the arcghitect was Phillip Johnson, one of the greatest designers in modern history. If you take a good look at the building it reflects Johnsons visions. I always thought is was at best at C+ structure, but after i learned it was a Johnson builidng it took on a different look. The new development will look much denser and will cramp the intersection. There was alot of open space around the builidng that will be lost. Guess its progress!
