The Star Tribune building in downtown Minneapolis edged closer to extinction this week when a committee of the City Council approved tearing it down to make room for a park.
The building has been described as functionally obsolete, but the Heritage Preservation Commission objects to its demolition. A member of the commission says the building is a "pretty sound example of Art Moderne."
The full City Council will take up the matter on Friday. The Daily Circuit gets an update on the issue from Council Member Cam Gordon.
