Tipton Block

Facade renovation to the historic Tipton Block on Whyte Avenue included new glazing and windows, repointed brick, restoration of metal cornice and details, painting, new signage, new architectural lighting and new roll-up awnings. We aimed to restore the main floor glazing sizes closer to what would have been originally built, removing a bulkhead and changes made in the 1950’s, while using modern commercial glazing and functional accordian folding windows that provide connection between the main floor business and the street. Work was supported by the City of Edmonton’s Facade Improvement Program.
