The old Cedar Falls Post Office building on Washington Street sat empty after it was no longer needed by the city or the school system. Plans were made to demolish it and use the space as a parking lot.
Jim Newcomb from the newly formed Cedar Falls Development Group told us how his organization stepped in at the eleventh hour and renovated this structure. Now this attractive historic building is the home for a downtown bicycle specialty store, Bike Tech. Jim said the success of this project has his group thinking ahead for future projects as opportunities present themselves.
Jim, thanks for sharing your story about preserving and repurposing this building. For more information about historic rennovation in Cedar Falls, Visit their Facebook page
