Bognet Construction, Old City Development Group, Cushman & Wakefield, and PGN Architects partnered to transform the historic Holzbeierlein Bakery to The Adora, a 60,000 SF mixed use building in the heart of Shaw DC that includes retail, office space and luxury condos.
Historic preservation was a critical element during the rehabilitation and construction. The Adora was built to preserve the original architecture and charm of one of the oldest bakeries in DC that once housed delivery wagon sheds and horse stables, now individual parking garages.
The scope included the renovation of the original building and the addition of 3 floors above the existing structure – tying into a new 5 story structure on the adjacent lot. Our team and trade partners strategized on constructability to ensure the internal steel structure tie into the existing brick façade, shoring and underpinning, and elevator installation was carefully coordinated and executed. Other elements of the project include a green roof, private terraces, modern finishes and high end appliances in each residential unit.
