Marks, Thomas Architects’ 520 Park Avenue project is a perfect example of neighborhood transformation through the adaptive re-use of the former Hochschild, Kohn & Co. warehouse, constructed in 1942. It is part of the National Register Historic District. The renovated building offers 121 luxury apartments as well as retail space slated for an assortment of 15 local artisan vendors creating a neighborhood marketplace.
This building’s modern transformation incorporates a unique and expansive courtyard into the center of the building. This allows double-loaded corridors with half the units overlooking the street and half overlooking the courtyard creating a sense of community. Other amenities include a living wall, cyber cafe, multipurpose living & dining areas, business center, fitness & yoga center and dog wash station.
