Facts

  • The building was originally built as the Lafer Brothers Wholesale Grocery store, and contained a large coffee bean roasting oven on its top floor.
  • The structure was originally constructed with an spiral chute that ran from the 9th floor down to the 2nd floor which was used for the cooling of the hot, roasted coffee beans coming down from the 9th floor, and to send dry goods down from higher floors to the lower floors.
  • If measured to the main roof parapet, excluding the penthouse, the building measures 115'-10.5".
  • Mercier Development Lafer completed a $2.8 million conversion of this building between August 2006 and January 2008, creating 16 lofts on floors 2 through 9, and reserving the ground floor and its mezzanine for retail.
