An early rendering of facade changes currently underway at the Hayward.

The ground floor retail space in the Hayward Hotel at 6th & Spring is getting a major rehab, part of owner Pacific Investments' efforts to upgrade the building's presence in the Historic Core.

Worn awnings are giving way to ceiling-high windows and a modern feel. The effect, even in its current, unfinished form is a more open feel to the sidewalk and the storefronts.

The Hayward Hotel is actually a series of three buildings, constructed between 1906 and 1925. The original hotel is at the corner, and opened in July of 1906. The addition on Spring street was added in 1918, while the 6th street annex was opened in 1926. The original building also received an extra floor in 1916.

According to Eric Shomof of Pacific Investments, part of the company's plans for the Hayward involve giving each of the building's a different treatment. The work is being designed to reflect the original architectural styles, while giving a cohesive feel to the retail spaces.
