The Conversion of 184 Kent Avenue Marches On

184 Kent Avenue, Cass Gilbert's 1913 design known as the Austin, Nichols Warehouse (click here for history), has been gutted and is in the process of getting a paint job and a new set of windows as part of its residential conversion. Those of you paying close attention will remember that the building was the subject of a high-profile, and ultimately unsuccessful, struggle by preservationists to get the building landmarked. Luckily, the developer ended up deciding to keep the building more-or-less intact, though he is planning to plop a sizable addition on the roof. Coulda been a lot worse.
