The landmark Ellicott Square Building is getting a facial to keep it attractive in Downtown's competitive real estate market.

Anyone walking or riding past the building can see the giant cherrypickers in use to take workers to windows high above or parked for another day.

Ellicott Development CEO William Paladino said a building as old as the 19th Century landmark needs watching and maintenance.

Right now, it's cleaning stone work and painting windows and monitoring the stone. 

Paladino said it's good for business, with questions about what's going on.
