This is one of the last remaining buildings of the historic 4th street corridor. In August 29018, it was revealed that Midtown Locust Properties would redevelop the building into retail and apartment space. Since then, work has been done to the building with the most noticeable thing done is the re-introduction of the original windows and new doors being installed at street level. Apartment windows could go in soon.
In my opinion, apartments are an odd choice for this location as this end of Downtown is pretty desolate and a train bridge is literally 50Ft away. It's not my money so what does my opinion mean to anyone at Midtown Locust Properties.
Progress as of January 8th, 2019.
Closer view. Lots of work still has to be done.
