New Plans in Motion for Dick's Brewery

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The old Dick's Brewery hosted tonight's Quincy Preserves annual meeting.

The building now houses an art studio known as the Gallery Solaro on the ground level.

Owners took guests on a tour. They've been working on renovating the brewery for the last year and a half.

Owners say they plan for the upper levels to be turned into office space, a city garden, and condos on the top floor.

Quincy Preserves President Vicki Dempsey says this is a good example of turning a historic building into something new and useful. "We have in this city a wealth of historic homes and buildings, and we want to highlight the people who have kept their structures renovated, and we also want to encourage - there's still a lot of structures that have fallen into disrepair and need restoration," she said.

Owners say they have also considered renting out space to a coffee shop or cafe on the ground level.
