A long abandoned office building gets a new lease on life

 

This 30,000sf 4 story commercial office building has been empty for decades, victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time after the race riots of the civil rights movement. Now, owned by a single WBE,veteran business, the building will be reborn as offices for their senior care nursing business and home to a local charter school. Two private entrances will be created on the ground floor to serve these unique uses and the site redone to separate parking from pedestrian access and provide outdoor space in a heavily urban environment.
