A court case beginning this week could impact the future of Rhode Island’s tallest building, known as the Superman Building.
The building’s new owner claims it was left in deplorable condition by longtime occupant Bank of America.
Massachusetts developer High Rock, which owns the so-called Superman Building in Downtown Providence, is suing Bank of America for more than 23 million.
High Rock claims that the former tenant left the 26 story building so neglected that it is un-rentable without costly repairs.
The downtown Providence skyscraper affectionately known as the “Superman building” may be getting a new lease on life. The 26 story office building may be going residential.
Providence developer Arnold “Buff” Chace says he has been hired by the owner of the Superman building to conduct a feasibility study into turning it into an apartment building.
