40 South School Street

Built in 1963, the 40 South School Street building thrived for decades, but was then neglected, leading to deterioration and vandalism. But in 2008, the three-story concrete structure was purchased. With an excellent location near Downtown and solid structural bones, the buyers saw potential in the abandoned structure. Committed to renovating the building in a sustainable way, our design team transformed the derelict structure into a visually appealing contemporary commercial building.

The project received a LEED Silver Certification and incorporated a number of innovative green strategies and materials, including a photovoltaic roof array, storm water management, and a roof top garden. It remains an excellent example of the potential that lies in many of the existing buildings in our community.
