Jordan Lofts is an adaptive reuse, multifamily housing, and mixed-use project in Boston’s South End. Located in the emergent SOWA district, the building was constructed in 1913 as industrial stables for Jordan Marsh & Company, a Boston-based chain of department stores. Today, Jordan Lofts holds 12 residences, a day care center, fitness center, and an array of lifestyle-related businesses. Ornate brickwork was preserved and excavated beams were salvaged while the structure’s flammable wood assembly was converted to steel and concrete. In addition, openings were created for large scale windows and balconies with views of the city skyline. The lobby was designed as a nod to the building’s original identity as a commercial stable. While the project was retrofitted with underground parking, historic facades and contemporary exterior interventions reinforce the neighborhood’s character where old meets new.
