It’s original beauty and grandeur is revealing itself. The Bank Building is being restored.
Bank Building Built
First National Bank Relocates
The anchor tenant builds a new building and moves across Sixth Street. The Bank of Cottage Grove occupies the Bank Building creating Cottage Grove’s first “financial district”.
Bank of Cottage Grove Closes
The bank failed and closed its doors forever. Soon after, the upstairs commercial area is converted to apartments.
Bay Window Returns
Dry rot timbers are removed and a new bay window, replicating the old, is framed. The historical windows are restored and put in place.
Renovating a Historic Treasure
It’s original beauty and grandeur is being revealed.
On the outside, the missing second-story cornice, bay window, and balcony are returning. The building’s visual balance and alignment restored. Broken and cracked stucco repaired.
Inside, transformation is also taking place.
Upstairs, there will be six completely renovated, new apartments with tall ceilings, sleeping lofts and large windows.
Downstairs will be Class A office space for 35 professionals, which will bring vibrancy and energy to the downtown.
More workers during the day; new residents at night. That’s the vision. Additionally, a new eatery and coffee shop will occupy the space on the corner of Main and Sixth Streets
