The Frank and Seder Building is a historic building and contributes to the identity, character, and history of downtown Pittsburgh. The building was built circa 1917 as the Frank and Seder Department Store. Oxford Development has proposed a plan to either refurbish the existing building, or demolish for new construction. We hope to persuade Oxford Development to save the Frank and Seder Building.

      I am a Frank on my mother's side. This building is a part of Pittsburgh history and architecture. Once those are gone, they are lost forever.

      As a native Pittsburgher and member of the Frank family, of course I have family reasons for wanting to preserve this building. I am also a preservationist, and an interior designer, and as part of the important heritage of Pittsburgh, this building deserves to be saved, which is also the greenest thing to do with it. I am all in favor of refurbishment and adaptive reuse, but please don't tear this lovely grand dame down!

      Buildings like this keeps Pittsburgh the beautiful city that it is. The contrast between old and new is something that makes the city what it is today.

      Too many beautiful old buildings in this city are being torn down for new ones. There is plenty of room to expand outwards, and the historic buildings is what makes this city special.
