Forefront Structural Engineer is collaboratively working with Hartshorne Plunkard Architect to optimize the adaptive re-use of the existing 10-story cold storage building. Constructed in 1919, the original building contains a secondary perimeter frame that thermally isolates the building structure.

FSE worked carefully with the contractor, architect, and developer to implement a scheme to decommission the cold storage building and modify the structural elements to include new elevators, mechanical systems, rooftop amenity deck and sub-basement parking.

Immediately adjacent to the 10-story building, FSE is designing a new modern 7-story office building with a link to the existing building. The new building will contain ground level retail and sub-grade parking.
