New Plans in Motion for Dick's Brewery


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.
