Our approach to the renovation process has always been straightforward: A home shouldn’t just accommodate your lifestyle — it should elevate it. Allow us to translate. You deserve to live like a f***ing boss. And to achieve that goal, sometimes there’s nowhere to build but up.

Now, to be clear, the preceding paragraph’s obvious hyperbole should be taken lightly. Or with a laugh. We’re not huge advocates of bass-dropping, Solo-cup-slinging bangers in a cordial community setting…or at all. But we digress. Something that can be taken literally here? This very real warehouse conversion in Upper Lawrenceville.

In recent years, shipping containers have gained popularity on the East Coast as sustainable facets of architecture. We’re celebrating accordingly by building out three loft-style condominiums with a little edge. Here’s the plan: One loft will be constructed entirely from shipping containers, while all three abodes will feature the structures as roof-level entertainment spaces. Designed by award-winning architect Peter Margittai, the Cargo Lofts are a clever fusion of practicality and efficiency; the old ‘n’ the new.

Built in 1900, the existing bones of the warehouse are packed with character, charm, and outrageous potential. As we transition the building into separate living quarters, we’ll pay homage to its roots by preserving the original ceilings, exposed brick, and overall industrial feel. To complement those old-school elements, we’ll add black stairs with raw metal railings, stainless aluminum doors, and rooftop pools, just for kicks. And there you have it, folks. Boss status achieved.

Units A, B, and C are available for pre-sale. Contact us for the full rundown.
