Residential apartments in Fred Building (Southern Mutual Building)
Plans have been submitted and approved for remodeling part of the Fred Building and changing them into residential apartments. The plans show how the second, third, and fourth floors could be changed from office space into apartments. The Fred Building was formerly known as the Southern Mutual Insurance Company Building and is located at 220 College Avenue; it houses Wachovia Bank and the City Bar. Although I do not know the status of any permits or actual decisions to implement any part of the plans, the plans themselves have been approved as meeting zoning requirements. I do not think that any further regulatory review will be required as there are no proposed exterior changes that would necessitate review by the Historic Preservation Commission.
