Yeah, it was called the Hodge building for years, then changed it to the Begich Towers. There is some homes there when some land was sold up past the Buckner building (use to be the offices and hospital for the military) over the hill, but they are pretty pricey and hard to access after a heavy snow.

The Begich Towers and all the other concrete buildings were built during WWII and after the '64 Earthquake was condemned from the third floor up. Then after they figured that is was worth money to sell them as condos and fees, the city "UN" condemned them and all floor are in use..
