Demolition Discoveries

A recent site visit to the historic Union Trust Bank building in downtown Providence revealed an original exterior sign from the early 1900s. Discovered during the demolition of the 12th floor, when the ceiling from the 1930s addition was removed. The photograph also highlights the drastic improvements of concrete as a building technology in the span of 30 years.  Similar to the Rooftop at the G building next door, the building owner is investigating designs for a 12th story restaurant with rooftop.
