After all, it is the Rich Building on Exchange Street in the city. Built in 1892, it looks to be quite vacant on those top floors. As they say, I do believe it has some great lines. I'm sure it's thoroughly ensconced on our city's historical preservation list too. It's not going anywheres soon either, because there are just too many hoops and ladders one needs to traverse, if there might be even a hint of any inside remodeling in its future.
Here's a bit of building trivia for you. Did you know that the tallest building in Maine is but 16 stories high? Franklin Towers, on Cumberland Avenue in Portland, holds that mantle at this time. That structure makes Maine 47th out of 50 states as far as tallest buildings go.
"Maine, the way Life should be."
Kind of an intriguing slogan, if you ask me.
Life is still kind of slow here.
I like it that way.
