I believe it's always been known as the Fairmont Towers for as long as I can remember going back at least 1970's.

Actually I think the place was once known as the "Downtowner" apartments. The building dates back to the early 1950s.

Thanks for replying - what great memory. I also believe the building was known as THE DOWNTOWNER. It was quite the place to live back in its heyday.

Wink The town house apartments

Thanks for replying - what great memory. However I believe the building was known as THE TOWN HOUSE APARTMENTS. It was quite the place to live back in its heyday. On its second floor, it housed the headquarters the MISTER LYNN'S INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF MODELING, the building's most famous resident for many years. But your memory of THE DOWNTOWNER is a motel on the edge of the CBD directly across the street from another long gone landmark, THE CAPTAIN SHREVE HOTEL. THE DOWNTOWNER MOTEL had a 24-hour coffee shop called MISTER PERKY'S.

I recall a popular downtown lounge called "The Thomas House" which is today "The Straycats Lounge". Hollywood actor Josh Brolin got arrested by SPD there when he was in town making the Oliver Stone movie: "W".
