The Transformer Station to electrify the neighborhood
by WKSU’s Mark Urycki
The brick block building on West 29th street was built in 1924 to house transformers that powered the trolley cars on Detroit Avenue, which is just one block to the north.
“This is a building I’ve known for many years. I think every architect in town wanted top get their hands on it.”
The concrete floors have been poured on all three levels of the building, the roof installation is complete. HVAC units have been dropped on the roof and duct work is being installed throughout the building for the museum-grade temperature and humidity controlled system.
