  • anyone have info on the future of the sewing machine building? Seems too small to have many prospects, with needs for parking and street setback; seemed like its useful life was more in retrofitting the building since it was grandfathered.

  • It’s a cool building, with the negative-inclined front windows. Not sure about the soundness of structure behind the shop-front.
    There’s parking in the back and a half-dozen or so head-in spots along 13th.

  • Sad to see this one go. Its so retro …

  • The old sewing shop is just in between Heights East and West historic districts. So, the wrecking ball is free to swing and, subject to parking/setback, etc., anything is fair game for that lot. Too bad they couldn’t take down the little strip mall with it.
