No, UAB did not buy the Liberty National Building. But you never know about UAB. UAB did rent space in that building from time to time and may still be using space there. A real estate firm (can't think of who they are) owns it and had plans to demolish it back when BBVA Compass Bank was looking to expand. They said it would have been very expensive to renovate because the elevators alone would cost about $10 million dollars. But BBVA decided to renovate and expand their Brock Banking Center down near Lakeview instead. So that building is just sitting empty and unloved. Hopefully when 20 Midtown is completed a use can be found for it.
