About 161 First Street
161 First Street is an existing, four-story brick building constructed circa 1907 for factory and warehouse uses. The historic structure is currently undergoing a complete renovation to restore architectural features to their former glory; address deferred maintenance, code compliance, and energy efficiency issues; and create forward-thinking spaces appealing to modern behavior.
The Project will include new windows and masonry repointing respectful of the building’s historic character preservation and energy efficiency goals; code compliance improvements to entries, stairwells, elevators, and building systems; building common spaces including a patio at the building’s western edge and a roof deck designed to support a collaborative, modern work environment. The Project will also include approximately 8,000 square feet of Innovation Office Space.
