Most buildings considered for the National Register of Historic Places are at least 50 years old, according to its website, but exceptions are made.

The nomination form up for eventual approval by the city council notes the building was designed without the aid of computers by a well-known architect, has received attention for its unique design and received the American Institute of Architecture's highest award in 1972.

Being listed on the register can add to the value of a building, which could provide an incentive to prospective buyers, Claus said.

“It adds panache to the building,” Claus said. “It formalizes that recognition that it's a place that is a part of the cultural and historical identity of the city.”

If the council approves the recommendation, it will go to the State Historic Preservation Review Committee, and then to the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places in Washington, D.C.
