Interior grade facade windows, installed in 2005, were literally melting off of the building.

These replacements were in ruins within 10 years.

Windows leaked in the rain and the rotted wood severely diminished the appearance of this 110 year old historic building.

Number of Windows: 131

Project Goal:
Restore windows to their original glory, the way they were intended to be

Interesting Fact:
This building was originally a cigar factory built in 1905 for Lozano, Niztal and Company.

In the 1970s it was used as art studios and apartments.

It is a vital structure to the history and culture of Ybor City.

Currently occupied by the Lion’s Eye Institute for Transplant and Research
