This new mixed-use project at the intersection of Pine Street and Melrose Avenue will act as a gateway to the Pike/Pine neighborhood and set a precedent for adaptive reuse of historic buildings in this vibrant and unique area. The site's two character structures, the Timken Roller Bearing Building and the Melrose Building, will have their facades restored in the process.
The new building is set back from the face of the retained character structures on three sides. It is detailed as four distinct buildings, each tailored to the historic structures and the street character below. The new buildings are of concrete construction, with window wall facades incorporating a variety of colors, textures, and window patterns.
The building's colorful retail and residential terraces will add activity and interest to the street below, keeping with the transformation of Melrose Avenue into a future pedestrian promenade.
