The Superman building, as it is commonly called by locals, is a distinct part of the Providence skyline and an iconic Rhode Island building. Officially titled the Industrial National Bank Building, it sits 428 feet tall, making it the tallest building in the state. The structure, completed in 1928, was built in an Art Deco style and bears striking similarity to the Daily Planet building from Superman. The last tenant was Bank of America, who chose not to renew its lease and vacated in 2013. Since then, the building has remained empty. A plan to convert the building into luxury housing, proposed by owner High Rock Development, was rejected for requiring too much in public funding.
