Saxon Court was the first major redevelopment on this unique block, which previously consisted largely of auto repair garages and associated vacant lots. The project mixes new construction with adaptive re-use of the historic structures. New façades were deliberately designed as contemporary reinterpretations of the original industrial architecture, including characteristic window patterns. The project incorporates habitable penthouses leading to individual, private roof decks—an ECA innovation that took advantage of a previously unappreciated opportunity within zoning laws and which was subsequently copied by other firms.
