Fixing the back end

Construction of the Williams-Sonoma project, as seen from the rear on First Street West. At the business address of 599 Broadway, the retailing giant is building a cooking school and café with a retail component, which has been described as a small shop in tribute to the original store Chuck Williams founded on the site in 1956.

At the back of the rehabbed structure will be apartments for visiting chefs and company guests, along with an outdoor fireplace, fountain and arbor. The store is scheduled to open in October.
