Commercial, 325,000 SF
Originally built as an ice sporting facility, the Uline Arena changed ownership over the years and eventually became a general entertainment space known as the Coliseum. In 1964, the Coliseum hosted the Beatles for their first sold-out performance in the U.S. An ice-making facility is located on the east side of the property that declined in use along with the Coliseum over the years. This adaptive reuse project links the arena to the ice house building transforming it into one mixed-use complex, with retail use on the ground levels and offices above. A new parking garage was added to the southeast corner of the site, terraced green balconies to the east, and an entry plaza on the northeast corner. Work done at Antunovich Associates.
Gang of Three
Commercial, 20,000 SF
Located in historic Blagden Alley this project initially consisted of three separate existing victorian rowhomes which were combined into a single commercial property. An addition was inserted to stitch the east facing rowhomes to a small carriage house that faces the alley. The rowhomes maintain their individual historic appearance on the exterior but are connected internally at each floor. The basements were underpinned, connected and expanded to twice the original footprint. The industrial material palette of stacked concrete masonry units, steel channel window frame and ipe wood accents used on the addition is inspired by the adjacent alley. Work done at Antunovich Associates.
