Community Paint & Hardware awaits reassembly after cross-town move (Video + Photos)

The historic Community Paint and Hardware building was successfully moved from Wisconsin Avenue by the Apex Building to Middleton Lane overnight Saturday. Cut into two pieces, the building halves are set right against each other, but have not been reassembled yet. It appears a separate team will be brought in to reattach the two parts, which are still sitting atop the motorized dollies used to move them up Wisconsin.

Why zero mention of PINSTRIPES opening at Pike and Rose? it is the best new place in decades.

5:52: You may have missed my mention of the opening several weeks ago in my big report on Pike & Rose Phase II opening. I met the Pinstripes CEO that day.

What's changed since the building(s) arrived at the new site yesterday morning?

Did a workman add a nail or two?

I wonder if they will attempt to restore the fa├žade to replicate the original use? Has anyone read about what this will become? Maybe not a real hardware store, but perhaps some adaptive reuse inspired by its historic past. The "hardware" coffee shop, or "hardware" lofts.

6:52: You're being sarcastic, right? It could be seen anywhere.

Looks like there was a nice crowd in Veterans' Square this afternoon.

Sometimes people like sharing things with others. I can watch the fireworks from my backyard all by myself. But it's more fun when there's a group of us watching together.

Big report. Huge!

I think he is serious. They have a bigger readership, so backlinking to your site helps since your readership is smaller. That's how sEO works.
