723 Main Street- Glass Wall Please
Avalon Development has signed an anchor tenant for its 723 Main Street renovation project. So what will the revamped property look like? RisingDamp666 on Queenseyeâ€™s original post demands, â€śPlease no old-timey facade! Put a glass wall in front of this.â€ť Does this qualify?
Avalon Copy Centers is taking 4000 sq.ft. of the one-story, 5500 sq.ft. building at 723 Main. Chris Jacobsâ€™ Avalon Development has been buying and renovating a string of non-descript buildings on the east side of the 700 block in recent years.
In 2002, Avalon redeveloped the circa-1911 Stokes Seeds Building at 737 Main Street. The three-story building features 18,000 sq.ft. of commercial space that has been a big hit with technology and other firms that can be creative with the loft-like space.

As an encore, the firm renovated 731 Main Street, re-christened the Swan Building. The 9,000 sq.ft. building features new terra-cotta cladding, dark bronze aluminum windows and doors, and art glazed transoms. According to Chris Jacobs, 731 Main may have been the first new terra cotta building downtown in over 30 years.

Last October, Avalon purchased 739-741 Main Street. Full Circle Studios recently moved into the building. The Avalon properties with their high ceilings, exposed brick walls and on-site parking have been a hit with tenants.
