The Fish Building was originally erected on virgin soil by developer and philanthropist Wilton J. Fish. Though Mr. Fish was noted in the community for his strong, lengthy body of charitable work, his personal life would soon explode onto the public stage and forever stain his public face.
A local television journalist who had been investigating Mr. Fish for a soft piece on local celebrities began probing some backdoor deals that didn't smell right. He eventually uncovered a shell company operating within the Fish building. The dirty revenue that streamed through this business was fed directly to Mr. Fish's numerous mistresses in return for their silence and continued service. As details came in spurts, Malton's populace found the idea quite hard to swallow. However, when the depths of the scandal were thoroughly plunged, all semblance of doubt was wiped away.
In the aftermath of the scandal, the Fish building slowly became barren and fell into disrepair. It was scheduled for demoltion until the Malton group "Preservation of Urban Streets and Structures for our Youth" started a vast oral campaign, going door-to-door in an effort to create a "mass debate". After circulating a petition and gaining the required amount of signatures, the Fish building was spared a brutal pounding.
The building was then refurbished, including a trimming of the brush, some new shutters, and a tightening from two front doors to one. It then entered a second stage of use, housing a community center that included a women's heath clinic and an outreach program designed to bring in teen girl gang-bangers. In an effort to encourage female mentorship in the community, the outreach group's offical motto became, "Any girl can do it with women!"
The Fish Building was oft noted as one of Malton's historical success stories, with passersby noting a general 'smell of success' infusing the area.
