1810 Walz Street: Before & After

1810 Walz Street, a historic apartment building in Spring Hill, was on the market a couple years ago. It needed complete renovation. Although preservationists will object to the vinyl siding and steel entry doors in place of the original clapboard siding and five panel wood doors, I am still happy to report that this building was given a new life. At least they kept the transoms, fire escape, and some of the decorative trim. What do you think?


  1. I liked it better befors, but like you, I'm glad it was saved.

  2. Some of the touches from before looked better, but it's better for this building to be full and productive again than to sit vacant, as it has for many years (and as some of the houses further along Walz St. are).

    I'm a resident of Walz so having to look at it everyday, I'm a fan of the after :). Great photos!
