Revitalization of Downtown Fresno
Downtown Fresno is becoming a booming area for revitalization in California, since it’s where you’re finding the best in the central valley in one location. The excitement that downtown is bringing to the central valley with its urban living, art galleries every month, Iron Bird Café, and Fulton 55 has brought attention to people around Fresno. Downtown has seen an exceptional increase in construction development in the past years with its development of lofts and different businesses around downtown. Many more investors are recognizing that money is to be made in successful revitalization.
The frosting on the cake in my opinion is the South West Building that’s located on 1060 Fulton, which is the tallest skyscraper in Fresno that has plenty of history to offer in downtown. The South West Building was built in the 1920’s as a Bank Fidelity Branch of the Los Angeles Trust and Savings, but later changed its name to Pacific Southwest Trust and Savings Bank. Throughout the 1920’s the building went into construction and went through many obstacles of revitalization and finishing in the 1920’s before the great depression and later getting the title “The Pacific South West Building.” The Pacific South West Building has lofts, Office space, and Ballroom space available for the public and businesses, which is very beneficial in the Central Valley.
