With 80,000 SF demolished (a half-block segment that parallels 25th Street, starting at Eighth Avenue), this mixed-use project breathes life into the former ‘Silk Mill’. Space will include office areas on the first through fourth floors, a restaurant, a café, and 11 residential units on the fourth floor. Office spaces will range from 2,000 SF to 8,600 SF. The building’s façade will be renovated, with windows now arched, and the smokestack will be restored.
