Detroit —Historic preservationists are rallying to stop the city from demolishing an empty Albert Kahn-designed building in Grand Circus Park.

An online petition to save the former Park Avenue Building was started Monday morning on change.org. More than 125 had signed by the afternoon. The campaign to save the historic building has support from the president of the board at Preservation Detroit and the influential HistoricDetroit.org, which posted a link to the petition on its Facebook page.
