Love what they are doing here, but not gonna lie, the sign looks a bit like that of a weed dispensary.

Great job on restoring the facade. I walked by there last week and it still had some gaps, looks complete now.

This really does look great in person.

Does anyone have a before pic they can post just to remind us how much of an upgrade this truly is.

Google street view on desktop would have this. Somewhere in the interface is a slider to go back in time if available for the location

why did building owners ever put that facade on? Cheaper to maintain? Style?

Yeah, probably the same deal as with oak tower. Terra cotta gets dirty pretty easily and needs maintenance, and they probably saw the modern cladding as being more stylish. They might have also been trying to fit in with city center square across the street.
