Burling & Adler was Dankmar Adler’s firm before teaming with Louis Sullivan. Adler & Sullivan’s Schiller (Garrick) Theatre was adjacent to the Apollo, and the Borden Block, Adler & Sullivan’s first commission, was adjacent to the Schiller.
Looks a lot like the Vic.
The building at 4717 is the one with the glass block that looks like it used to be a garage. Maybe the same building.
The neon is presently being restored. There are big plans for the Logan in the future including new seats, a more arts and community focus, restoration of some historic elements, lobby remodel, etc.
