     History
    1)The Virginia Paper Company Building is significant as one of the last large industrial building to be constructed close to the center of the city of Charlotte, relying on freight rail service.

    2) Designed by New York architect Walter Dabney Blair, the Virginia Paper Company Building is significant as an extremely well preserved and largely unaltered example industrial architecture from the 1930s. ( Has AWESOME mushroom columns in it)

    3) The Virginia Paper Company Building is an important reminder of the evolution of parts of Third Ward, from a mixed-race residential neighborhood at the beginning of the 20th century, to a largely industrial and commercial neighborhood by the middle of the century.

    The Virginia Paper Building employed fire-proof construction. The solid brick exterior walls surround reinforced concrete slab floors and roof, which are supported by poured concrete mushroom columns. These noncombustible materials combined with metal frame doors and windows, resulted in a virtually fire-proof building shell. These elements of a fire-proof design became popular in the 1920's and were the culmination of over one hundred years of technical advances.

    Here is the link where this info and TONS more came from as I feel it is better to copy and paste then re-write in my own words.
