The Ten-Story Kaley

Kaley: the ten-story, slender building, opens. I’ve worked on the Kaley as SMG’s interior architect. The building interior, one that has received preliminary mixed reviews, will be opening her hallways to Kalkreuth over the next few weeks. Serving as the company’s main office, Kaley derives her name from the combination of the two top executives, Hurley and Kalkreuth, making Kaley. As the Kaley Center has evolved from the Riley building, the ten floors have hosted a variety of smaller tenants throughout construction. Through the renovation as we (SMG is located on the 6th floor) have moved floors, picked up our feet to make room for new carpet, and have climbed the stairs awaiting new elevators, we couldn’t be more excited to see construction come to a close.

An old post card found in public library files depicts the light-colored windows that you will see again today.

These are nice, but to gather the full range of change see some of the ‘before’ photos below. These pictures below, which were taken during the past year at different phases of construction, are all by the in-house architectural photographer, Julie Doerr.
