Where My Dogs At?

New view looking north on Broadway featuring
CEDARst mascot Lady Louise

The familiar "B" on the south facing side of the former Bridgeview Bank at Lawrence and Broadway is no more.

As Cedar Street completes its conversion of the historic building at 4753 N. Broadway into a 176 unit residential building, they are putting their mark on the building in the form a black & white logo featuring a French Bulldog. Cedar Street founder Jay Michael was the proud owner of a French Bulldog named Lady Louise, who was a constant companion until Michaels death in 2016

Lady Louise has since become the symbol of the company, which has saved and renovated multiple historic buildings in Uptown, including the bank building, the Lawrence House, the future Double Door, and many others.

Most recent logo on the building, The Bridgeview Bank "B"

We think the new dog looks great and provides a much nicer welcome to Uptown than the old "B."
