History of Pickwick
The Pickwick Plaza (now Pickwick Place) was developed in 1987 by the late Dr. Donald Kahn, who wanted to construct a European-style shopping center in the heart of Five Points. The name came from the former Pickwick Club, a dance club which operated nearby until the late 1950s. Development of the center included the conversion of the Medical Arts Building, the first professional office building for physicians in the city, into a hotel originally called the Pickwick Hotel. A tiled plaza was built connecting the hotel to a 4-level parking deck with several retail spaces and meeting rooms for the hotel.
