Birmingham in Jefferson County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
The Clark Building housed multiple businesses until 1986, when it became vacant. In 1996, plans had been made to demolish the building when John Lauriello of Southpace Properties and Bob Moody of Moody & Associates recognized its potential for historic rehabilitation. Through their efforts and those of Operation New Birmingham, the building was saved when the property was purchased by partners of Lightfoot, Franklin & White in 1997. Restoration of the building was completed in 1998 by Charles & Vinzant Construction Company.
