    Superman Building Tops List of Most Endangered Buildings

    Preservationists say Providence's iconic Superman Building is still facing the kryptonite of neglect.

    The landmark formally known as the Industrial Trust Building tops the Providence Preservation Society's list of most endangered properties for 2019.

    The 91-year-old skyscraper, Rhode Island's tallest building, got its nickname because of its resemblance to the Daily Planet headquarters in the old TV show. It's been vacant for more than five years.
