This is the former headquarters of First Home Federal, a casualty of the S&L crisis.

I recall that the building was built to house a regional branch of the federal agency that oversaw savings & loan banks. After that agency moved (to Atlanta, I believe), Home Federal S&L (by then First Home Federal S&L) took over the building. Google found this scrap of info about the story: http://www.ncbankers.org/uploads/File/fhlb-greensboro.pdf .

One of our Facebook Fans, Tracy, pointed out that VF no longer owns the Vanity Fair brand. So, VF is just that-VF.
