The last piece of the facade puzzle has been put into place for a building that is located at the corner of Grant Street and West Delavan. A couple of months back I featured this building as it was getting an upgrade, as three of its storefronts were getting their transom windows replaced. At the same time, there was one last pesky storefront smack dab in the middle of the building that had been boarded up for years – a gap in what was otherwise a perfect set of teeth.
Today that gap has been filled in with a new display windows that now give the entire building an almost uniform look. The tenant behind the freshly added glass is a shop called New To You, which specializes in gently worn and used clothing, household items, furniture and appliances. The business now fronts a series of storefronts within the building, and appears to be growing steadily. Below you can see what the storefront looked like a couple of months ago, showing signs of what was to come. This section had been boarded up for years previously with some sort of permanent boarding (not what is pictured below). Kudos to the building owner for the nice completion of this this corner.
