Boeing site artifacts

Dear Editor:
As they close in on demolishing Building 290 at the old NAA/Rockwell/Boeing site, I was wondering if any attempts were being made to save building artifacts.
In particular, there is a sheet metal panel at the upper northwest (front) corner of Building 290 that has the old NAA logo embossed upon it – it’s hard to see with the Downey Studios dark blue paint over it, but it’s there – I’m sure some of the craftsmen from the space program made that panel.
It sure would be nice to save it for historical purposes (both the company and plant are now gone).
