But then, I started looking at the structure, and I realized I knew what it was: The Mockbee Building, on Central Parkway.
And then I took a closer look, and realized something was missing between then and today. AN ENTIRE FLOOR was chopped off the top of the west side. Who does that?!?
There is/was a nightclub/art gallery/hipster event hall inside, called fittingly The Mockbee, but it does not appear to be operational. Other than a company with the same name that sells fasteners and joints and stuff, in Northside, I've been able to find out zip about this place. I was hoping Queen City Tour would have sumptin.
