The planned conversion of a manufacturing building in Ridgewood into an office, light manufacturing and retail space is now complete, and the developers have shared several new images of the finished product.
Earlier this year developers Hornig Capital Partners and Brickman Associates released renderings of their $10 million conversion of the factory building at 1519 Decatur Street. This large structure once housed Brick & Ballerstein, which manufactured boxes for perfume and jewelry.
The restructured three-story building now offers up 55,570 square feet of office space, and 7,430 square feet of retail. The first floor will feature office units with 14-foot tall ceilings; that goes up to 18 feet for units on the second floor; the third floor will have a 3,713-square-foot office space with private bathrooms and a pantry.
The marketing and leasing agents on the property, ABS Partners Real Estate, are trying to push the location, now known as the Box Factory, as a creative hub, but the developers haven’t yet released details on potential tenants. The developers are hopeful that a coffee or food purveyor will take over the retail space. The conversion was designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture.
