1401 Race Photos

I found a few old photos of this building at 14th and Race, so while taking photos of the Washington Park Elementary Demolition a few days ago, I took photos from similar angles for comparison. I know that there are plans for a major renovation of this building, so hopefully I will continue the series.

Cool pics.

OTRCH and Eber plan on fixing up the building a bit with their City Home project. I posted about that today.

Yeah, I thought the project included complete interior rehab, but your post seemed to indicate just an improved storefront.

The biggest difference in the before and after pics is the trees.
