Re-envisioning a distinguished building for continued future use
The original iconic 1924 building will be remodeled into 103 affordable housing apartments. The first floor will house the main lobby and amenity areas. The original multi-story volume press room will be converted into a restaurant and brew pub. The unit mix will consist of studio, one bedroom, two bedrooms and three bedroom apartments as well as street accessed walk-up units.
The 1962 addition will be converted into student housing with 217 beds in studio, two bedroom and four bedroom apartments. The 1962 press room area will be converted into a regulation sized basketball court and fitness complex. Over 160 parking spaces will be provided in the lower levels of both existing buildings.
Designated a historic complex by the Historic Preservation Commission, the building qualifies for historic tax credits.
