Linode, a cloud hosting provider, has started work on a historic building in Philadelphia. The building covers 15,000 square feet and will be converted into an office space for the company. Last year, Linode was selected to restore the building, which dates back to 1902.
It’s a three-story building, which used to be the home of Union Bank of Philadelphia and the Girard Cork Exchange National Bank and Trust Company. It was also used as the set of the MTV show The Real World: Philadelphia in 2004.
The building is listed on both the local and national register of historic places. It provides unique features, such as limestone columns, a granite stoop, glass pocket doors and bronze throughout.
