The slender building at 7243 NE Glisan Street, opened as a Snow Cap Dairy in the mid 1920’s. The original address was 1857 E. Glisan and it received its final plumbing inspection October 8th 1925. However, Portland maps lists its occupancy date as 1928. In the Mid 1940’s it was Dainty Diaper Service. Over the last few years it has hosted many more local businesses.
Now, after a stunning facelift completed late last year, this building is the new home of Sparrow Salon in the front, and Orbit Heating and Cooling in the back. A great deal of care was used to modernize the storefront portion of the building, while maintaining the original character of the structure. This should be a celebrated restoration. It will secure the building seeing its 100th year and also spotlight the businesses within.
