The renovation of the Treacy Building, an early 20th century residential/ commercial building with an iconic 1950s sign, would result in improved storefronts for several neighborhood businesses and 12-20 units of affordable rental housing. An interdisciplinary design team created two redevelopment scenarios for the building. The first option renovates the original building and explores opportunities for historic tax credits. The second option proposes new construction behind the original facade.
