Steve Shellenberger, the owner of Architectural Antiques, is the man running the crew deconstructing the façade, and he told us the whole building is going to be carefully disassembled and and stored in a warehouse. Shellenberger will then sell the package of architecture to another buyer, like a developer or decorator who’s looking for something unique. Considering the visual continuity of the façade, it’s likely to stay together rather than be parceled out. As such, the historic legacy and appealing architecture will be preserved and made useful again, even as its old, somewhat seedy home is leveled.
