Blakey-Yost Building

Blakey Yost Law Offices • Order A Print

The Blakey-Yost Building is an example of an urban structure that has changed purposes—and appearances—over time.  Today it is an office building; prior to that, a restaurant.  And prior to that?  Well, who knows....  The structure as it appears today is the result of a major renovation that occurred after a fire.  The first floor facade was essentially totally gutted in the late 1980s.  Local architect NuTec Design was commissioned to design a new building behind the facade, as well as create a historical external appearance.  The Blakey-Yost Building essentially contains heavy Renaissance Revival influences, including three district levels, arched windows, eaves with brackets, and arched doorway with keystone.
