Scaffolding has gone up around the eastern half of the Whiskey Row Lofts site for facade repair. Facade repairs have already been undertaken on the western L&N Headquarters building, and now work begins on the former whiskey warehouse and Burwinkle Hendershot store next door.

It also looks like facade repair is moving along nicely at 121 West Main Street a couple doors east. Now that the Whiskey Row Lofts, O’Shea’s, and 121 West Main have all repaired their buildings, that only leaves Todd Blue to fix up his properties east on the block.

  1. Is the building collapse in Butchertown going to hinder the efforts of preservationists to stop Todd Blue from tearing down the rest of this block?

  2. It should have the opposite effect – it shows the effect of doing nothing. I own a building of the same age and construction. I had the same problems, but fixed them 5 years ago. Everyone has known that building had structural issues, I saw them 3 years when it was for sale. The owners choose not to complete repairs and wait until they became catastrophic. It was repairable, probably up until the day it collapsed. If the lesson learned is to just demo before they collapse, then we are missing the point. Anyone can come see my building, it’s almost impossible to even see where the repair was done, as we salvaged brick from interior sections. But a $12,000 repair saved a beautiful $250,000 building. Had 1401 been repaired when the brick first showed signs of failure, the repair could have been done at a reasonable price.
