    On October 5, 2017, APT WGLC provided a tour of the Old Chicago Post Office (OPO) building for approximately twenty-five WGLC members. The building has more than 2.5 million square feet of floor space and has been abandoned for approximately 20 years. The building is currently undergoing redevelopment and the tour was a rare chance for many to see the interior of the building near the end of the interior demolition phase. Highlights of the tour included viewing of the roof, multiple floor levels, the Post Master General’s office, and the newly refurbished grand lobby. WGLC would like to thank all of our members that participated in this tour and a special welcome to our new members that attended. We look forward to seeing you again at upcoming WGLC events!

    On October 27th, APT WGLC members and friends participated in a hands-on stenciling workshop at Conrad Schmitt Studios in New Berlin, Wisconsin. Participants learned about the use of stenciling as a decorative finish, different levels of artistry in stenciling applications, and methods used to document, restore, and replicate historic stenciling. Participants tested their skills by creating their own three-color stencil masterpiece. While the projects were drying we enjoyed a studio tour and seeing many stained-glass restoration projects in process. APT WGLC would like to thank Conrad Schmitt Studios for a fun and educational event!

    Earlier this month, Jennifer Spencer and Ashley Sarver of Gary W. Anderson & Associates (GWAA) gave a lively presentation on the Illinois River’s Edge Redevelopment Tax Credit Program, how the tax credit has benefited Rockford, and their related project work.  They focused on the rehabilitation of the Prairie Street Brewhouse, where their office is located, and touched on several other projects with similar focus and use of applicable tax credits.  After the presentation the group toured the Prairie Street facility, which has become a center of activity for the local  community.  APT WGLC thanks Jennifer and Ashley and invites its members to visit Rockford and see all that the River’s Edge tax credit program has done for the city!
