This mixed use development project to create a new chocolate factory, retail outlet, offices and a future restaurant involved interior and exterior renovations to a historical building that originally functioned as a street trolley car barn and most recently a brewery.
The design team worked closely with the owners to create a unique chocolate processing plant. It is the first of its kind in the United States in the past 20 years.
The last phase of this project renovates the south facade to open a restaurant space to the street and adjacent ship canal. The design is reminiscent of the wide expanses of the trolley barn and creates an indoor/ outdoor space for dining.
