SAVE 18th and Howard
Another historic downtown building leveled for hasty development. Sound familiar? Recently, Douglas County officials unveiled a plan to purchase and demolish a four-story, 1920 brick building at 18th and Howard streets just northwest of the Flatiron Hotel for a new juvenile justice facility. With eminent domain letters in hand, county officials want to take this building away from the current owner, a preservationist dedicated to saving the building and converting the empty space into loft apartments. There are other options.
