Storefront True to Kresge Original Although the owner wanted to place offices along the street front, the original storefront configuration was restored: this was done to meet the Secretary’s standards, but also to provide access to retail uses, should they be added at some point in the future. Glass and framing were placed on a base of polished, locally quarried quartzite.

Ground floor window openings on the north façade, which had been made smaller in an 1980’s renovation to accommodate a lay-in ceiling were restored to their original size and proportion. Original second floor windows were salvaged and retrofitted with insulating glass. The limestone coping, part of which was missing, was restored and the masonry selectively tuckpointed and cleaned.

Made Accessible: An elevator is unobtrusively inserted. HVAC Invisibly Inserted: By adding a chase behind the parapet and above the roof structure, space was created for supply and return ducts to deliver air to all spaces without impacting the character of the interior.

Similarly, lighting was added by furring the ceiling 1-1/2� to provide space for conduit, below the original plaster ceiling which was attached directly to the roof joists. Skylights were reconstructed where evidence showed they had previously existed.

Restrained Treatment of Largely Intact Upper Level:

2007 Condition

The second floor had been altered from its 1928/1941 layout and appearance and had been unoccupied for over 20 years. Much of the original historic fabric was still present under the various alterations. New partitions, to create the large number of private offices required by the South Dakota Trust Company, were neatly inserted into the original pattern of larger offices without removing existing walls or altering the rhythm of doors and windows along the main hallway.

Tall Ground Floor Ceilings Restored: Lowered ceilings were removed and pressed metal ceilings restored. New partitions are held below the original structure to allow the proportions of the original Kresge retail space to be seen. Ductwork is routed through the basement.
