42 South Second Street Restoration
Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce
This project's objective was to renovate and restore the 1927 Neo-Classical, 23,750 square foot building for the Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce. The program included providing office space for the Visitors and Convention Bureau and for the Downtown Council, as well as, provide space for the production and presentation of promotional materials. Restoration of the building included removal of materials from previous remodels, opening the original windows that had been sealed, refinishing of pseudo-greek ornamentation, refurbish existing light fixtures and refinishing the bronze entry. The elevator was replaced and the cab was finished out to match the original. Exterior work was limited to cleaning the limestone and granite and painting the steel windows.
