Historic Status for the Gill Building

The Preservation Board has recommended that the Gill Building at 622 Olive be nominated for the historic register - a necessary step for the building's owner, Mark Pitilangas, to receive tax credits for the renovation work he's performing.

The building really looks great these days, with its glazed terra cotta facade gleaming white and its trim freshly painted. It seems hard to believe that the May Co. was once hell-bent on getting it torn down.

Hopefully, we'll hear news of new tenants moving in soon.
