Rhode Island's tallest building is opening for another set of free public tours.

A spokesman for building owner David Sweetser, of Massachusetts-based High Rock Development LLC, announced Monday the so-called "Superman Building" will open for three tours on Nov. 19, Dec. 3 and Dec. 10.

The 90-minute tours will include the vault, the banking hall and the 25th floor. The tours will be led by members of the Providence Preservation Society. The reservation website will go live at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

Five public tours were held between July and September.

The Art Deco-style skyscraper opened in 1928 as the Industrial National Bank Building. It has been vacant for more than three years. High Rock has been pushing to get public money to help pay to redevelop it.
