Went to the dentist today in the Leader. They have cleaned the back of the building and the difference is amazing!  I'm sure someone has an old picture but this used to be BLACK. Sounds like K&D is pretty behind schedule but making progress. Dr. Rosenblitt is moving into an amazing space on the first floor that used to be a bank. I had a tour late last year and even though it was in rough shape a lot of the original architecture was intact. The skylights are also being redone. Should be a great project.

To add to the above, here is a quick shot out front. Not much to see but work continues.

If you go down Vincent or 6th, you'll see this beast of a crane:



It appeared to be taking HVAC related stuff to the roof.

The Leader could use an extensive bath as well.

Was there ever any overall plans released  for Leader building re-development other than the possible number of residential units going in (i couldn't find anything)? Specifically will there be any upgrades to the ground level retail?  I think an upgrade to Porcelli's and the coffee shop next door, Tabu, would be a fantastic idea. It doesn't have to be anything major either, I don't think. Maybe  a little expansion of the square footage, if possible. Also something like the warm weather accordion style sliding glass doors/wall  for Tabu. It would be a great place to sit outside and have the morning espresso at.

I'm excited for this whole 6th, Short Vincent area. Actually kinda anxious because of all the residential coming on line. I believe all the near-by parcels that have been examples of poor land usage for so many years will quickly become very apparent to everyone. Leader, Garfield building and possibly 515 residential tower, this will become a hot little area and fast.

They're power washing the East 6th side of The Leader Building.

Not done. Quick Google search produces several helpful articles, including this one:

Kind of tired of seeing the red and blue light scheme downtown. Glad to see they have lighting though.

Agreed.  Same lighting as the Hanna building.  Would much rather see the continuous, recessed cornice lighting with well placed spotlights.

I read in another thread that the Leader renovation is nearing completion and is
100% leased.
