520 Park Avenue is a perfect example of preserving the built environment through the adaptive re-use of the former Hochschild, Kohn & Co. warehouse constructed in 1942. It is part of the Market Center National Register Historic District and the renovated building offers 171 luxury apartments as well as retail space slated for an assortment of 15 local artisan vendors creating a marketplace that will help transform the neighborhood.
The design concept was to push the boundaries and create a space unique and unlike other similar projects types in the area. The ultra-modern aesthetic of the lobby infused with color captures the curiosity of street traffic and provides a youthful image that appeals to local professionals and students. Building amenities include a living wall, cyber cafe, multipurpose living & dining areas, a business center, fitness & yoga center, dog wash station and interior courtyard.
