The Bever Building, the former Sub City building, and Albert Auto sit next to each other on First Avenue SE.

The preservation commission says it needs time to see if the buildings, or parts of them, can be salvaged.

Skogman Realty owns the buildings, and wants to tear them down to make way for new office space.
