Originally housing the American Nut and Candy factory, JL Dunn and Company converted this abandoned 16,000 sf brick and beam low rise into a lively urban community grocery store. Due to the nature of the building and it's long dormant status, extensive HazMat abatement and structural work were required before the conversion could begin. Core construction of the grocery store required all new underground plumbing, below grade waterproofing, storefronts, operating doors, structural and miscellaneous steel, all new electrical, mechanical, and life safety systems. Final completion of the space encompassed ceramic and quarry tile, IPE plant walls, stainless steel kitchen assembly, refrigeration plant and coolers.
