The building’s ground floor, with its exceptional construction, could easily support more stories to create greater density. As a result, it was reimagined as a five story, contemporary building totaling 50,000 square feet. As a midblock building, outdoor space was nonexistent, so the team designed an inviting rooftop deck that provides exceptional views of the Capitol and created street-facing balconies. The design, in a nod to its original architecture, is midcentury and reflects clean, modern lines. Brick, taken from the original building, was reused on the façade.
Inside, high-efficiency HVAC and other elements were incorporated. The interior design reflects streamlined elements and a neutral color palette to give the building an upscale and modern feel. Common areas also include storage for bikes and showers for occupants.
