4th Avenue Theatre Capital Improvement Project 2007-2008:

In early 2007, Combs & Combs, AIA and our Historic Preservation Team including our restoration contractor were selected by the Municipality of Anchorage and the Anchorage Downtown Partnership to complete the 4th Avenue Theatre Capital Improvement Project.  The project included the restoration of the historic theatre that would allow the continued use as a theatre and multi-use and art education facility.

The project  continued until mid-2007 when the funding did not materialize from the Rasmuson Foundation.  The building was  sold by the bank in 2009 to a San Francisco developer who has let the building deteriorate.  The building remains closed and Combs & Combs, AIA has continued to try and save the building through a local non-profit group-4th Avenue Theatre, Inc. to save the building for community use.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_Avenue_Theatre_(Anchorage,_Alaska)
