The Historic lyric piano co. building History

The Lyric Piano Building was constructed in 1919. Lyric Piano Co. was a subsidiary of the Ralph Wurlitzer Co., the internationally renowned piano and organ manufacturer.

The company never recovered from the Great Depression and shut its doors in 1937, leading to various subleases of the space over time – including several restaurants.

This four-story building features many great architectural features like Venetian Renaissance style columns, a multi-arched balcony, white terra cotta tiles, and circular medallions. In the 1950’s the building housed a dressmaker, and in later years a succession of hamburger restaurants. In 2007 the building was purchased and redeveloped into a mixed-use space with retail on the first floor, office space on the second, and a residential unit on the third and fourth floor.

Appelman Properties acquired the building fall of 23' with full intentions of bringing it back to is full former glory.
