The Bank of Italy building is an historic 9-story, 38 m (125 ft) high-rise in downtown Fresno, California. The building was completed in 1918 for the Bank of Italy, that later became the Bank of America. Its chief designer was Charles Franklin of the R.F. Felchlin Company. The completely vacant building is the ninth tallest in the city, and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The building was sold to the Penstar Group, a Fresno based developer, in 2009.[5]
