The 106,000 square foot building will contain 88 new, one and two bedroom apartments. These new homes will be characterized by the use of the exposed concrete structure and masonry spandrels as the focus of the loft interiors. New minimalist features such as millwork, faucets, fixtures and hardware will clearly identify the new construction from the original, historic building elements. The mechanical penthouse will be cleared of outdated equipment and converted into two luxury penthouse units creating an additional floor of living space which will have views of the city scape from rooftop patios. The ground floor will preserve the original lobby and house retail tenants and classroom space for the neighboring First Baptist Church. ERN Architects prepared the application for federal historic tax credits.
