Box Factory Lofts

Box Factory Lofts

Tampa, FL

Lord Aeck Sargent sensitively designed the adaptive use of a c. 1915 cigar box factory in the historic Ybor City section of Tampa for a 53 two-story unit residential condominium.

The project entailed carefully restoring the existing masonry walls and replacing deteriorated windows with long-lasting, insulated windows similar in appearance to the originals. To minimize visibility of structural changes, a second floor addition is set back from the face of the building and structured parking is hidden within.

Amenities include a landscaped courtyard and swimming pool with individual residence access.
