The former Bank of Ensley building on the city’s westside is currently undergoing an extensive, long-term renovation project by its owner, Monumental Contracting Service. The company moved into the building, most recently used as storage for the city’s library system during the renovation of two area branches, early last year.

Here you see scaffolding up in this image from last weekend as windows are replaced in this historic building, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The downtown Ensley area will soon surveyed for purposes of it receiving landmark district status.

We’ll take a look at additional projects taking place on the city’s West Side in the coming weeks.
