More from the St. Louis Fox

Here is another St. Louis item from a few days ago courtesy of DALE CARTER:

 St. Louis Fox Theatre goes dark for repair work

 Most visible of $2 million in improvements will be new façade.

 The Fox Theatre is going dark for seven weeks while it undergoes $2 million worth of improvements, according to an announcement. The improvements include replacing the theatre’s air conditioning system and installing LED lighting for energy conversation. The lobby ceiling is being repaired from fire damage in May and the massive Fox chandelier will be lowered for cleaning and relamping.

 The most visible change to visitors will be the creation of a Grand Boulevard façade that runs across the frontage of the Fox Theatre and its adjacent buildings, including the Humbolt office building at the corner of Grand and Washington boulevards. New glass storefronts and awnings will be installed, and a balcony will be added to the Humbolt building.

    Does the new facade mean this would be covered up?
