A couple of weeks ago we linked to an article in the Triad Business Journal about Barry Siegal and Willard Tucker’s potential effort to redevelop the Southeastern Building in Greensboro. Today’s Greensboro News & Record has a front page story about the redevelopment:
The two finally have the OKs from state and federal historic-preservation officials, the financial backing and even the building permit to get the restoration started.
There’s a bit of paper left to push.
Then, in March, the real work will begin: a 14-month, more than $13 million renovation that will replicate the original limestone column-flanked entrance to Elm Street and other features inside the former bank.
When it’s done, it also will be home to 51 high-end apartments and office and retail space.
Definitely check out the article and its accompanying photo. Lots of interesting tidbits about what the final product might look like, and how Siegal and Tucker hope to retain many of the building’s unique architectural touches.
