This structure was selected by the Victorian Outlet Mall Developers to demonstrate the rehabilitation potential that is typical of many historic structures within the outlet mall redevelopment district. The building’s three facades serve as an example of an intact storefront and façade, a severely altered façade and how the middle façade can be transformed to create a unique and exciting retail image.

Historically significant interior architectural features were to be preserved and the remainder of the interior was prepared to accept the new retail tenant’s improvements. Replica tin ceilings were incorporated within the first 30 feet of the retail space. Streetscape, sidewalk and landscaping directly in front of the renovated façade were designed to reflect the intended master plan concept.

Kayafas Architects worked with Heritage Architectural Associates, the State Historic Preservation Office and the Developers to achieve results consistent with standards set forth by the Secretary of the Interior for Historic Buildings and tax credits.
