And Then There Was Light

Deconstruction starts.
Awning coming down. More light.
Original architecture and windows exposed.

That was almost a haiku.

Here’s the before:










Restoration in progress. Coincidentally, they could leave it like this to mirror the Phoenix Pharmacy. You know, if they were sadistic and immoral. Nah…

Red Castle II











Let there be light. More windows, more light, more exposed brick = more sexy for Foster.

Red Castle










More to come…

    Wow, I had no idea there was a moderately attractive building under there! Right on! And thanks again for keeping us all informed and connected…it is no small part of the greatness that is (and will be!) Foster-Powell.

    I wish more businesses used those adorable corner entrances… looks like this building had a nice one that was converted into a window… would love to walk into the store under those cool windows via a corner entrance…

      was eating at Bar Carlo and noticed more of the awning is down… happy to see the cool window above the current Red Castle entrance… hoping they put something lit up and colorful in there so you can see it from both of those neat windows…

    Looks awesome, who thought that awning was a good idea anyway?

    Isn’t she a beaut? As Project Manager for this restoration, I’d like to shout out a big thanks to our awesome landlord, Donald Hanna, for his vision and passion for the building, and to Sue Lewis and the Portland Development Commission for their funding and support!
