Our firm designed a new 99-unit loft apartment complex on 2.8 acres of land in downtown Decatur. Included in the project is the rehabilitation of an existing 12,000 square foot Ice Production and Distribution Plant, built circa 1923.
The two new buildings respond to the industrial nature of the neighborhood and the existing historic Ice House. The larger building contains two levels of parking below grade and a five-level apartment complex above the parking area. The rehabilitation of the existing Ice House incorporates a restaurant tenant at the street level. Both buildings include concrete frame construction with precast and brick exterior finishes.
