I'm more encouraged that they are actually doing anything with this! So i'll take it for now. This company appears to be relatively new? or somewhat new to the business?

Any kind of improvement to this building would be welcomed at this point, in my opinion.

Yeah I wasn't aware of them until now - then again they seem to mostly be focusing on interior renovations so it would be kinda hard to notice them I guess.

That's true regarding their work with interior reno's more so than actually interior and exterior work.

I'm just happy that someone is doing something with some of these older buildings. I don't know the developer, but I like anyone who makes an effort to do something in our Downtown and in the Core.

Yeah I really want to see all of the exterior facades restored throughout the city. So many buildings with good bones that just need 150 years worth of neglect to be fixed.. like the william thomas facade.

Lots of buildings with missing pediments that would be fixed as well.

They're the Forge and Foster of 2019! It's like there's a five year cycle of these private money placement bros before they descend into chaos...or maybe you need that long to stay ahead of FSCO?

Worst case they fixed up a ton of commercial space in the process. Tons of businesses want to come downtown it seems, but they don't want or have the money to repair 50 years of issues.

Those new bay windows look great

Can't wait to see the first floor signage and original details go back
