This project ties seven historic, abandoned brick and heavy timber warehouse buildings together to create a single, smooth-functioning midscale hotel. In order to take advantage of tax credits, the design team worked closely with officials from the National Park Service and the State and City historical preservation agencies. The buildings are clustered around an atrium and an adjoining outdoor courtyard, with the existing timber structure preserved. The restoration won a state historical preservation award and has revitalized the surrounding neighborhood.
