Arctic style tenement buildings

In the 1970’s and 1980’s as oil money flooded the North Slope Borough, and Barrow was growing by leaps and bounds, housing was needed.  At least eight 12-plex apartment buildings were built (not to mention a 36 unit, a 32 unit, and two 29 unit buildings).  Now, in 2015, some of these buildings are used as office space, but most are still functioning as rental units for family housing.  They are aging though, and currently are being renovated one by one.
