This renovation project gave new life to historic waterfront industrial buildings in Astoria. The building changed from industrial use to retail use, but windows and siding were replaced to match the original style and locations. The building was seismically upgraded and has new electrical, plumbing and heating systems. Care was taken to distinguish old from new, as well keeping the wide open expanse of the building by having interior windows between spaces to show the roof structure. A new public “indoor/outdoor” public space was added as an amenity for the Astoria Riverwalk.
