Restored Wright-Kay Building Daylights Old Iron Columns

New, 17 comments

The Wright-Kay Building is back. Concealed by a plywood barricade during its months-long construction process, the restored ground floor has been revealed days before its debut as John Varvatos. The new look is a huge upgrade for the 124-year-old building. Installed decades ago, the previous granite facade hid the original cast iron frame like a bulky set of sweatpants. John Varvatos doesn't open to the public 'til Friday, but let's hope Bedrock worked similar magic on the interior. From what we saw in 2013, they have quite a bit to work with.
