​​​​Rendering of redeveloped Firestone buildingAMARILLO – During the restoration process of the Firestone building in downtown Amarillo, workers and managers had to monitor the maximum PSI of the pressure washer used on the decades-old brick.

The project is to turn the historic vehicle service and tire distribution center at 1004 S. Tyler St. into The Firestone.

The property will contain 13 luxury lofts anchoring a community living space that those in charge say will provide modern city living while honoring a piece of Amarillo history.

The nearly 100-year-old building was listed in the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places on July 21, 2015, as the “Louis H. Smith Inc. Firestone Store.” 

The first residents in that apartment and the other dozen at the corner of South Tyler St. and Southwest 10th Ave. could move in starting Dec. 8, 2017. 

The project’s price tag is estimated at nearly $3 million.
