185 Central Avenue Renovations

Project Description

This project involved the major renovation of a 2 story 17,000 ft2 abandoned warehouse located across the street from NJIT. The exterior was refinished with new brick veneer and storefront systems while maintaining the industrial character of the original building and allowing for new ground floor retail spaces with additional retail on the second floor. New mechanical, electrical and fire protection systems were added. New tenants include the owner’s business furniture company, an after school youth program, a sandwich shop, and convenience store which help to bring back street life to an underutilized area.
