Just a few years ago, the aging 10-story AT&T building, a couple of blocks off the Capitol Square at 316 W. Washington Ave., was sitting mostly empty.

Along with its new identity, it sports a new name: the 316 Building.

Its brew house, main bar, restaurant, rooftop beer garden with a bandstand and a fire pit demonstrate that this is an ambitious design that may well fuel the revitalization of downtown Waunakee.
