This public / private mixed-use development consists of three distinct elements: a 379-space city-owned parking ramp, a 7-story commercial office wing and an 8-story, 42-unit residential development with ground floor retail space. The distinctive merging of traditional brick with contemporary curtain wall fits the neighborhood like a comfortable sweater, softening the modern edge of the commercial environment as it reinforces the human-scale of the building’s residential wing.
Brick and beams salvaged from the original building grace the commercial lobby. Conference rooms, employee lounges and open office space take full advantage of the building’s signature corner facade as the ‘prow’ of the building offers dramatic urban vistas.
Building amenities include roof-top patios and residential balconies overlooking the restaurant and entertainment district. Apartments and condominiums provide compelling urban living space that solves a city parking dilemma by connecting directly to the corresponding floor of the attached parking ramp.
