Downtown Clearwater June 18, 2007  

Historic Telephone Exchange Emerging from a Concrete Cocoon As Cleveland Street undergoes its $8 million makeover, a historic building on the corner of Cleveland and Garden Ave. is fi nally getting the restoration it has been waiting for.

Having spent the last 50 years encased in concrete panels the three-story Telephone Exchange Building is ready to come back to its original look.

Building owner’s Jon and Sylvia Heneghan are overseeing the removal of the panels and removing the bricks from the windows. So far the restoration has uncovered the historic “Telephone” sign on the front of the building. As seen in old black and white photo’s. It is quite possible that no one has seen this building in it’s full color in over 50 years. As Mr. Heneghan has not been able to fi nd any color photo’s of the building as it was before it was encased.

Station Square the newest 15 story 126 luxury condo building, with main fl oor retail and a restaurant will be completed in June 2008.

The gorgeous $9 million dollar street scape in downtown Clearwater will be completed fall 2007.

$9.64 million dollar 129 boat slip project at the end of Cleveland Street will have two spaces for water taxi which will be completed 2009. The next closest marina to this project has a 3 to 5 year waiting list. Our boat slip project has also interested US Fish & Wildlife Services into granting Clearwater $1.2 million dollars in federal monies, after we beat out 32 other cities that applied. This was made possible because we were able to prove that at least $4 million dollars of the boat slip project would benefi t transient boaters....who like to travel marina to marina.
