This award winning adaptive reuse project featured a structure that was added to again and again over time. The removal of a non-historic in-filled section revealed window-walls of older building sections. The structural steel from that section was left in place to stabilize the older structures, creating a unique courtyard space. This affordable housing project also included a ground level parking garage.
