Some major progress has been made lately at Broadway and Lawrence. Several readers contacted us to let us know the Riv building was getting its ground level windows installed today, and as you can see, they are large and welcoming.
Update: This is what the building looked like a couple years ago. Some difference, huh? It must have been easier to slap some metal panels on it when it started deteriorating than pay for the extensive and expensive rehab. A tip of the hat to GB Properties (corrected!) (and its deep pockets) for seeing it through. (photo courtesy of karbon69 on Flickr.)
A bit further north on Broadway, Crew was given a fresh coat of gray paint and the flower boxes for the outdoor seating area were being repainted also.
