Very good pictures, truly some different angles.

Really should spell the name of the place correctly in the title, though "Haydon" Burns ...


[edit to add] thanks for the correction

Very nice pics indeed.  Has anyone heard where the deal with the non profit organization for this building stands?

The woman from the non-profit was on one of the local news stations the other night (story about derelict buildings) - sounded like her plans were moving ahead.

It's sobering to realize I remember when the "new" library opened...and now we're wondering what lies ahead for this significant building!

Does anyone know who has the keys to this building?

It was just purchased by the DuPont Fund last week.  Someone with that organization has the keys.

I really had high hopes for Latitude and opening an entertainment center in the space. Now that it will become a non-profit center how will that impact the area at street level? No doubt as great as the buildings around Hemming Plaza have been restored by the city, it's still a great disappointment that there is no activity at street level. Will this project be the same? I really miss the activity in this building during Art Walk.

^It will all depend on what uses are placed at street level.  Just because it will be filled with non-profits doesn't necessarily mean it can be interactive at the human scale. For example, the Wilmington non-profit example has street level retail with non-profits located on upper floors.
