The Petroleum Building was built in 1953 as a five-story parking garage known as the Downtown Auto Park. In 1956, offices and retail space were added and the building was renamed the Petroleum Building. In recent years, the building has been vacant. In 2018, just after this photo was taken, renovation began to turn the building into apartments which will be known as Alton Plaza. [map]
