City wants restored skyscraper to be the state’s Great Places award winner
GREENSBORO — Here’s your chance to turn a Greensboro landmark into one of North Carolina’s “Great Places” and earn bragging rights over a few other cities.
A year after developers reopened the Southeastern Building at 100 N. Elm St., the American Planning Association has chosen the building as a finalist for a “Great Places in North Carolina” award for historic preservation.
Developers Barry Siegal and Willard Tucker spent two years and $15 million restoring the 100,000-square-foot building for high-end apartments, offices and retail. They paid special attention to returning the building’s exterior to the classical stone facade it had when it opened in 1920.
