Winchester Towers, Winchester, VA

Sitting just outside the historic downtown core, this 1962 hotel is currently being redeveloped and it is unclear if the current structure will remain. The hotel incorporates traditional materials like brick that blend in downtown as well as mid-century elements like the concrete block screen. The vertical sign is also intact and serves as a visual beacon for drivers. The building was recently included in an expansion of the National Register of Historic Places district in order to be eligible for tax credits. It will be interesting to see if anyone takes advantage of those to restore this building.
