At A Glance
Interior grade facade windows, installed in 2005, were literally melting off of the building.
These replacements were in ruins within 10 years.
Windows leaked in the rain and the rotted wood severely diminished the appearance of this 110 year old historic building.
Number of Windows: 131
Restore windows to their original glory, the way they were intended to be
