Office Building Conversion to Residential

Formerly the five-story concrete headquarters for the American Automobile Association (AAA), 2040 Market Street received a renovation and vertical and horizontal expansion for conversion into a mixed-use residential building featuring 282 units of one- and two-bedroom apartments with ground-level retail and an underground parking garage.

Using a system incorporating a load bearing cold formed steel wall panel along with a composite joist floor system, a 120,000-sf vertical overbuild was designed that added eight residential floors to the existing building. The project also included a 68,000-sf horizontal expansion.

The basement of the existing building was converted into an underground parking garage. The high ceilings of the basement level allow for the use of vertical car stackers to increase the number of spaces.
