The Providence Preservation Society is out with its annual list of the most endangered properties.
These are buildings of historic or architectural interest that are threatened by neglect or development.
This year’s list includes the Superman Building in downtown Providence, which has been sitting vacant since its tenants moved out last year.
The Statehouse lawn is also included; it was partly mowed over to create more parking spaces.
The city of Providence is seeking to take control of the vacant George C. Arnold building on Washington Street.
The three story structure has been vacant since a damaging fire in 2009 and has been placed on the Providence Preservation Society’s “top ten” list of endangered properties.
President of the Providence Preservation Society, Lucie Searle, says the current condition and vacancy should be a concern.
Searl says she hopes the city's effort will contribute to Washington Street's emerging vibrancy.
