Restoration is humming along at El Moore, a historic apartment building slowly making its way back from abandonment. The basic plan is for El Moore to offer both apartments and hostel accommodations, including a handful of unique cabins on the roof. As if that wasn't enough, the El Moore now has its own greenhouse (made from recycled materials, of course) and a new "green alley" out back.
El Moore is a project of the Green Garage, hence the abundance of environmentally friendly construction techniques. Last we heard, El Moore anticipated being ready this coming spring.
