Completion Date: March 2003

Location: East New York


This 3 story, 100,300 S.F. Building is used for retail self-storage. It was designed to accommodate local residents and business alike.

This highly successful retail venture was fully occupied with local residential and business tenants within weeks of opening. In fact, the success of this project has brought two separate competitors to the neighborhood and led the owner to expand this facility in a subsequent building project.

The most notable feature of this building is its adaptive reuse of an existing, but empty warehouse. By utilizing the existing interior height to add one floor in that volume, the design doubled the value of the building to the owner and increased the level of service to the community.
