It was ABC action news about a week ago but in a quick segment. You might not be able to find it.

Some new graffiti showed up this week. Bask is a fairly well known local artist.

They're doing fire stuff at Kress. Exit signs and what not. Permits pulled too.

Looks like. They have been showing the building a lot more lately too, this might factor in.

Ah, there it is. I attended last year and it was a bunch of fun. The fire marshall wasn't too excited about it though, so it's good to see they're taking care of things beforehand.

I noticed today that they installed doors (albeit very basic) to the front.

They're working on all three buildings on the Kress block and I snapped a pic of the JJ Newberry building this morning. It was in really rough shape last time I saw it. Obviously a lot of work going on still, but they have removed the ceiling, which was very necessary. There were workers wearing full Tyvek suits cleaning up today.

Guys with coveralls on probably means they're messing with asbestos, or maybe chemical cleanup. (like old cleaners and such laying around. Pretty common)

Here are some shots of the JJ Newberry building from this week. As you can see, they have made a lot of progress. Remember to check out my first gallery, a lot has changed.

Gallery link for full sized images.

A good sized room. Fix it up and it could be used for all sorts of things.

Removing the boards over the windows would make a huge difference, I didn't realize how big the street facing windows were.

I would also be interested in seeing what the second floor looks like.

Wouldn't it be nice if this was actually a first step toward a significant redevelopment of the Kress? It's great that they're fixing it up enough to hold an event in it, but I'd love to see this as the jumping off point for something more permanent and ambitious. Probably not, but a guy can dream, can't he?

From your lips to the developers ears. But my guess is even if they wanted to these guys couldn't get the loans to make it happen right now -- even with the historic building tax credit.

They could, but they do not want to and no one will push them.

Agreed. It could have happened, as Jason mentioned, years ago. But nothing happened then and frankly, I don't think anything significant will.

Huh? Who are these guys that loan are "easy" for them to develop a commercial and residential building in Downtown Tampa. The banks hate that idea despite all the recent successes inspit of the economy in Dtown.
