Concerned Citizens of Chatham: Will the Independence Bank building survive?

Worlee wrote yesterday about the coming takeover by Urban Partnership Bank of the former branch of Northern Trust Bank located at 7801 S State St.:
The corner of 79th Cottage Grove is currently experiencing challenges because of several large outdated structures. These structures attract nefarious activity and leaves a lot to be desired. Also, east on 79th street,is what is considered the worst beat in the City of Chicago by the Chicago Police Department. So the question that many in the Chatham community are asking will Urban Partnership abandon the Independence Bank Building for the old Northern Trust Clock Tower Building. Calls to Urban Partnership have gone unanswered, so we will have to wait and see what will happen.
What will happen to this nice building once Urban Partnership sets up shop at their new digs on State Street?
