It's a little hard to believe that the building on the corner of 9th and Hill is actually a parking garage. It just looks too nice...

The 1927 structure, built by the May Company to serve its massive store across the street, has looked a bit decrepit in recent years. Today it emerged from underneath scaffolding sporting a new set of windows and a shiny exterior.

The city issued a building permit for the garage on December 6, 1926, valuing the project at $500,000. Architects Curlett and Beelman designed the structure.

Scaffolding remains on the garage's ground floor, itself slated for a new look. The interior is also set for a renovation.
