Another deal to revamp the wonderful U.S. Custom House building has fallen through. The Portland International School was set to take over the building but withdrew their application last week for budgetary reasons. More information on this can be found in this Daily Journal of Commerce story. Another story, from the Portland Tribune, can be found here.

This monumental building is in great condition – even the 100+ year-old windows still function as they should. Let’s hope someone acquires it and restores it to it’s former glory.
