Phase 1 – 1616 Latimer Fund façade
The main façade of the Cosmopolitan Club’s 1616 Latimer Street Clubhouse establishes the impression of the building, not only by members and guests, but by the general public who pass by. The ultimate restoration, preservation and rehabilitation of the main façade will greatly enhance the appearance and long-term continued use of the building. It is a key component of the 1600 Block of Latimer Street and contributes to the City’s Historic District, as recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. The entrance will be much improved both visually and made more physically accessible. Additionally, the ADA Component will give better access to the building for members and guests.
