Originally built as part of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) created by President Roosevelt during the Great Depression to employ 8.5 million Americans. As with many other post offices, the building was sold in 2012 by the US Post Office Administration to private individuals and developers. The building has since been deemed a historical asset. BOTO Design was enlisted to transform the building into a new modern creative office space. The original facade and customer lobby were retained, and the restored Edward Biberman “Story of Venice” mural will be reinstalled. New steel windows, skylights, and a large two-story lightwell infuse the interior with natural light. The large west-facing loading dock was converted into an outdoor amenity area, accessible through new overhead folding glass doors. The existing concrete structure remains, and new custom cast bronze railings historically consistent with the original building were installed. New landscaping & finishes modernize the exterior and bring new life to the building.
