Is Peavey Plaza Worth Saving?
The City Council is considering demolishing and rebuiling the 1970s Peavey Plaza, as a means of addressing myriad concerns with crime and useability. Others say the plaza as a significant work of modernist architecture—work worth saving. The Heritage Preservation Committee voted against demolition. The Council has the power to overturn the ruling, in which case demolition could start next year. Stay tuned for a report on the site, which would determine its status as a historic resource.
