Tower Proposed for Former Juan Ribbon Machine Shop


Update (2/24/16):

New renderings have surfaced for the 144 1st Street project. These updated images show how the proposed building would look from the east, north and south directions. Although I’m not a big proponent of demolishing historic warehouses, I have to say I’m a fan of the design.

The Juan Ribbon Machine Shop, most recently occupied by Parlay Studios at 144 First Street has a development proposal working its way through the city process. The proposed plan, designed by LWDMR Architects, calls for an 11 story tower with a roof deck.

Final renderings aren’t currently available, however, there is a previous design here and PANDA has a lot of good information here.

The existing building was demolished in January 2016.
