The Richardson Olmsted Complex is famous for its iconic two towers, but take a closer look – the 140-year-old National Historic Landmark also features thousands of windows.
The windows at the Complex have been there since the site’s original construction in the late 1800s. They are all made of original plate glass and old growth hardwood.
When rehabilitation of the center three buildings began in 2014, many of the windows were broken, all were dirty, and some were boarded up. The Richardson Center Corporation was faced with the decision of replacing or restoring the original windows.
To find out if the windows ended up being restored, check out the full issue of The Connector!
