The Polaris Building

Federal funding will enable demolition of the derelict Polaris Hotel building in downtown Fairbanks as early as this summer. The 1950’s era 11 story high rise is Fairbanks tallest building, but it’s been long neglected and targeted for tear down. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, a local group has spent years on the project with the goal of seeing the site redeveloped.
