To activate the key intersection for our O&M project (at the corner of 19th and Indiana), BUILD included a 2,000-sf ground-level retail space that wraps the corner of the building and opens onto the adjacent Dogpatch Arts Plaza with floor-to-ceiling mobile glass walls. We then worked with the local Piccino restaurant to bring to life a new cafe called Noon All Day.
The build-out of the cafe was coordinated with overall construction to open in late 2017 as we were leasing up the residential spaces. Immediately, the cafe has helped define the project, the plaza, and the overall feel of the area. Visitors enjoy both indoor and outdoor seating, bring activity to the Plaza, and build connections with the apartment buildings as they can see through into the interior courtyard of Building O.
