TOLEDO – A White Tower in the way of the expansion of a downtown YWCA will be moved rather than destroyed, according to The Toledo Blade. We wrote about the imperiled hamburger shop earlier this year, and the YWCA’s offer to sell it for $1 to anyone who would remove it.
According to the Blade, Rumpf Development Ltd. purchased the 600-foot-structure. Writes The Blade, “Bruce Rumpf, managing member of Rumpf Development, plans to work with Jim Moline, 2007 HBA Builder of the Year, and Bob Seyfang, an architect and preservationist, to dismantle and reconstruct the building. It is expected to be dismantled in 30 days. The White Tower, to be located at Ontario and Monroe streets, will keep its name and will be operated as a 24-hour diner.”
