This project consists of a gut rehab of the old Municipal Powerhouse located on 11th and Clark Street. The original building consisted of Forty-Five foot of vertical spaces but no horizontal space for offices. The solution was to build a “ship in a bottle” as it was called several times. The exterior windows were all removed for replacement with historic replicas. We took that opportunity to boom in the steel to create two additional floors thus providing a total of 33,000 square feet of usable space. The exterior brick walls were only cleaned to preserve the historic nature of the building. This project was able to utilize Historic tax credits along with Brownfield credits for the clean up that had to happen in the existing shell. We are very please to say that this building has achieved LEED Gold certification.
