This week bricks are coming down and will soon be going back up at
Friendship Manor on the city's southwest side across for the Lincoln
Community High School.
According to Lincoln Building and Safety Officer John Lebegue, the
upper levels of the brick facade in particular were deteriorating to
an unsafe point. The owners of the Manor spent quite some time
considering what they would do with the building.
They thought about doing something new to the facade of the building
to give it a different look. However, in the end they determined
that they wanted to maintain the building in the manner in which it
was originally constructed. Therefore, when the work is competed the
building will have that same familiar look we all know.
