RICHLAND CENTER, WI (Ben Caxton) — Officials from the A.D. German Warehouse Conservancy announced last week that the organization has reached the halfway point in its fundraising goal for the restoration and enhancement of the 1915 Frank Lloyd Wright designed building. The only warehouse designed by Wright, located in his birthplace of Richland Center is being “re-imagined” using Wright’s principles to enhance economic development in Richland Center, Richland County and the Driftless Region the group said in a press release. Plans are to restore the Warehouse and adjacent 1912 building as well as to develop space for social, cultural and economic activities. Of the estimated $4million needed for the project, approximately $2million has been raised including historic tax credits, private donations, and grants. The priority is to raise $50,000 for design drawings that will lock in 2020 contractor prices. Other grant applications are in process. Work on restoration of The Warehouse, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, will begin once the fundraising goal is reached.
