Improving the view

Taking advantage of one more splendid October day, with sunshine and warm temperatures, crews worked to remove and replace the front windows of the Van Buren Building in downtown Columbia City. The new windows will be similar in appearance to the windows in the adjoining Grant Building and will greatly improve the building's facade. New windows were added to the upper two floors earlier this year.
The project is just one in a series of renovations that will transform the 111-year-old building into a three story reception facility and office complex. The project is expected to near completion in November.
