What happens to buildings that never receive historic protections?  Is it the kiss of death?  Interestingly, there is a list of ten buildings downtown in the National Register of Historic Places nomination form for apartments that are specifically singled out with justifications.  You may be surprised by how many buildings on this list of honorable mentions are still around today.  The first half of the list includes: The Avondale, 545-551 North Senate Avenue; The Celeste, 402-404 East New York Street; The Coburn, 205 East New York Street; The Deauville, 548 North Senate Avenue; The Eugenia, 302-310 West New York Street.  The general explanation as to why these apartments were excluded from the nomination form was based on a “physical integrity” test, more specifically, “whether a specific property still retained a high percentage of its original historic physical materials (brick, limestone, leaded glass, etc.), and its architectural design features (cornices, moldings, doorways, etc.).” (National Register Nomination Form, 1983)
