College Inn Building

Soldano Luth worked with the building owners to reinvigorate the exterior of this historic building in the University District. Several remodels had made the once prominent building dull and uninspiring. To transform it into the gem that it should be, a program of restoration was started. Original brickwork was exposed, pointed, and cleaned. Windows and relites that had been walled in were replaced and trimmed. Fresh paint colors now brighten the façade, and an elegant steel and glass canopy was installed. The building is now a focal point for this area of the University District, providing services, including a small inn, a pub, restaurant, coffee shop, and small grocery, for university faculty and staff. Meet me at the College Inn is an easy refrain to sing for this delightful building.
