This unique adaptive re-use development involved merging a new eleven story modern steel and glass tower construction on top of an existing seven story brick and concrete building that had been erected in two phases in the 1920’s and 1950’s. The new and old masses converge at the eight floor, where the top of the existing building has been converted into a rooftop patio and sundeck with kitchen. The tower’s hanging balconies, patterned to match the facade color and material change, serve to further integrate the two forms. An 11,000-square-foot basement amenity level includes a fitness center, lounge, games room, putting green, movie theater and center-piece 2-lane bowling alley. Ground floor retail, parking and lobby space anchor the structure contextually and provide a dynamic street presence.
