600 West Main Street

The pair of 1865 cast iron façade structures were completed rehabilitated and returned to useful service in 1980 as office space on the upper four floors and restaurant space on the first floor. A new entry lobby was created linking the street entrance to the elevator core and atrium. The existing area well was converted into an atrium which serves as a main focal point of the building and the oak beamed ceiling under the existing second floor roof was retained and restored as a canopy over the restaurant.
