Renovations begin on downtown Phoenix Luhrs complex

[Source: Barbara Stocklin, City of Phoenix] — The City of Phoenix continues to coordinate with Hansji Urban, Ltd, the owners of the historic Luhrs complex on the south side of Jefferson Street between 1st and Central Avenues regarding their rehabilitation work. 

The street-facing historic windows on floors 2 through 7 of the Luhrs Building have been temporarily removed, and are being restored off-site; they will be re-installed once the wood components are restored and new laminated glass and E-film are inserted into the original window sashes.  The 1970s aluminum windows on floors 8 through 10 will be removed and replaced with replica historic dual pane aluminum windows which will closely resemble the historic wood windows.  Staff of the Historic Preservation Office approved all of the window rehabilitation and replacement plans and work is now underway.
