Client: Brown Field Ventures
Architect: Alamo Architects
Completion Date: Phase I 2008; Phase II 2011
Project Size: 48,000 SF
As part of the continued surge in rejuvenation of the South Flores district, Alamo Architects helped drive the transformation of the former home of the McCormick Deering International Harvestor Company at 1344 South Flores into a mixed-use property. The new vision is for a building that will house retail and office tenants and possibly residential lofts.
For the physical changes, the concept behind the transformation was a phased rehabilitation that included improvements for the overall site, infrastructure and enhancements to the building shell and core. Following the initial improvements, the first business to call the new 1344 South Flores home was Cleary Zimmermann Engineers. The projected third and final phase of work will convert an open warehouse structure at the rear of the building into lofts and covered parking.
