     Unfortunately over the years, the building became dilapidated due to lack of maintenance.   In the 1990’s, the Holsten Development Company acquired the property and under took a $7.5 million renovation project.  The apartments, lobby and corridors were revamped.  New elevators were installed. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing were updated.  The masonry, windows, and roof were repaired or restored.

     Currently, the building features a roof top garden, an air conditioned exercise room.  Mia Francesca Restaurant occupies  the ground floor. 

     The Bryn Mawr was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
