The scaffolding is down from the construction site of the O’Shea’ on Main site, revealing the first visible changes on the future arena district restaurant and pub. Besides the newly painted cornice, the drooping limestone on the right hand side of the building has been fixed. Work involved removing some pieces of stone and resetting them and tuck-pointing the entire facade. Small cast iron masonry stars, common on many historic buildings, have been added to keep the facade in place for generations to come.
It’s good to see the building’s Main Street face looking less droopy as the building’s best years still lay ahead of it. The building is currently being cleaned out in preparation for interior construction. Truck loads of stored goods have been removed, leaving a blank palette on the inside for work to begin soon. We’ll bring you more news on this one soon.
