ROCKFORD (WREX) -  For nearly a century, the Talcott Building has stood tall in downtown Rockford. 

"It's a super historic building," says Urban Equity Properties Founder Justin Fern. "Obviously one of the tallest buildings I think in five counties."

That history will continue in 2020. Urban Equity Properties is nearing completion of renovations to the Talcott Building which will now be known as The Residences at Talcott.
