FEATURED PROJECT, HISTORIC RESTORATION, MULTI-FAMILY
As part of this ambitious project, 146 market-rate apartments were meticulously crafted, each averaging around 1,000 square feet in size.
To achieve this, the project entailed demolishing the factory production equipment that had been used before the site was vacated in 2012. Additionally, a sizable silo structure situated between the two buildings was replaced with an inviting open courtyard, featuring a pool and designated gathering areas for residents’ enjoyment.
In order to enhance the living experience, various amenities were included in the Roaster’s Block development, such as a fitness center, social lounge, and a coffee bar.
Moreover, the larger south building of the former factory plant now provides underground parking options on basement and sub-basement levels. As for the north building, it is served by surface lots, which also accommodate any overflow parking needs from the south building.
