Reads Stores, highly visible from the street with its twin green domes, was constructed as a massive department store in the heyday of Chapel Streets retail dominance. The street level has been altered substantially in the 1970s, and the store renamed Pran Central, but the building remains otherwise unaltered in its distinctive Federation Freestyle form.
