First Facets of a Fresh Face
Until this week, the ongoing construction didn't give much hint as to the finished façade's final form. Now, however, passerby will have a better idea of how the store will look in the end. The frame around the front entrance has been built, and, although it is still bare wood, it gives shape to the project.
Siding, the first material of the finished look, also started going up this week.
In order to aid in moving materials to the upper stories, construction workers brought in some heavy equipment.
One of the items that needed lifting was shutters. It's been nearly 60 years since the building's windows had shutters. They almost finished putting them on today, but rain put an early halt to the week's work.
