This building proved to be an especially tough challenge for its property owners when it was first acquired. This former home of a Kress department store was boarded up with plywood and its most defining characteristic was the amount of ivy growing over the façade. A complete interior remodel was completed, along with re-interpretation of original façade context with new materials. A unique, artist-created sign completes this project, which won the Texas Downtown Association’s highest award for building renovations.
