Progress on East Fifth Street

It appears that an interesting facade may be preserved in the conversion of a used car dealership to retail and office space. Plaintalker previously posted about this Art Deco detail with a Ford logo in the middle.

Paramount Property Management, the company that acquired 45 Plainfield storefronts in 2007, received city approvals some time ago to convert the building into four offices and 10 retail spaces.

The location is 110 East Fifth Street, south of the main train station.
Modern windows are being installed as the building is being converted to 10,245 square feet of retail space and 3,173 square feet of office space.

Debris from the conversion is piled up for removal. If you happen to pass by the corner of Cleveland and East Fifth, peek through the chain-link fence draped in blue tarpaulins to see how things are going.
