|The framed foundation for the upcoming Majestic Building|
Now work has begun on the reconstruction, at the NE corner of Broadway and Leland.
As you can see from the photo,
the foundation is framed and waiting to be poured. The CTA tells Uptown Update that over 80% of the original white and blue terracotta pieces were restored and the remaining 20% will be cast new to match what was there before. Black glazed brick will fill the former "windows" of the storefront. Plans are in place for art to be displayed, or to be used for neighborhood event announcements.
