Firestone Apartments

West of Henderson on 1st, 5th, 7th, & 10th Streets - 1999

 

This is a large apartment development situated on the west end of Downtown where many of the city's automobile dealerships were located in the 1920's. These buildings were demolished for the project. However, this project has given life to an area on the west side of Downtown that was mostly vacant.   The apartments are similar to a brownstone design, with the buildings very close to the streets. The centerpiece of the project is the Firestone Service Store, which was not demolished, and has been restored and utilized as a community center for the apartment development.
