McKinley Building and the MacKay Building, it is the tallest residential building in Alaska Constructed as a 14-story HUD 604 apartment building, it was Anchorage's first high-rise building. It was later bought by Neal MacKay and converted into a state office building after it had sat for years following damage in the 1964 Alaska earthquake. The state moved out in 1982, and it sat condemned by the city for failing fire codes (between 1984 and 2006) as a well-known, dilapidated, pink eyesore earning it several derogatory nicknames. Bought in 1998 by Marc Marlow, it was later remodeled and brought up to code. It is currently the McKinley Tower Apartments.
