(STURGIS) – A project to renovate some buildings in downtown Sturgis is getting underway.

Crews have been working on the outside of the buildings in the 100 block of East Chicago on the south side of the road. A few years ago, Sturgis Bank & Trust purchased one of the buildings and remodeled it to house Oakleaf Financial Services.

Recently, Sturgis Bank & Trust bought the remaining buildings on the block and plan to remodel and revitalize them as well. Bank President Eric Eishen says he wants to restore the buildings to their original look, which is a trend in other communities. ...... {LISTEN}.

Eishen says he hopes the project will encourage other downtown businesses to do the same thing.

Eishen says the timeline to get the work done is up in the air because it's not known what kind of damage may be underneath the tin that was put on the buildings, put he wants to make sure the restoration work is done correctly. ...... {LISTEN}.

Once the work is done, Eishen says they will look to rent the lower portion of the buildings to businesses. And he said they may consider creating studio apartments for rent in the upstairs of the buildings.
