Starbucks in the old McMahon Tire Building- Fort Wayne, IN

Despite the fact that it is a chain, we have to applaud Starbucks for their downtown Fort Wayne location. This cute building used to be McMahon Tire building and was built in 1929. It was on the endangered structures list at one point but Starbucks moved in and even kept the integrity of the art deco building. We hope that the completion of Parkview Field downtown will bring them even more business.

I've always dug this little building. Nice shot with the Lincoln Tower in the background (which is my favorite tall building in the state...sorry Indy).

It would have been awesome if they would have built a more prominent Art Deco building like the Lincoln tower in Indianapolis back in the 20's and 30's.
