Walnut Street soon could witness the transformation of one of its century-old downtown buildings. Local developers just purchased the Vandivort Building and plan to turn it into an upscale, boutique hotel. Designs are already underway and construction should start in early 2013.
“I think you can walk out the front door and feel the energy of what’s happening down here,” said John McQueary, one of the purchasers of the Vandivort.
McQueary is a computer programmer turned property developer. He has an eye for detail and a heart for the Queen City’s history.
