The Press Building
The Press Building is an exceptional urban reuse of one of Lancaster’s most notable historic properties. Greenebaum Structures assisted Lancaster Press Partners, composed of Tippetts/Weaver Architects, The Drogaris Companies and Wagman Construction, in the structural condition review of this building prior to design, prepared structural construction documents and assisted in the structural review of renovations.
The vacant, six story, 78-year old former industrial building was converted into 90,000 sq. ft. of luxury 1, 2, and 3 bedroom Apt/Condos with 5,900 sq. ft. of retail space on the first floor now developed into an up-scale restaurant, Armorette. Open living areas feature exposed brick walls and concrete columns from the original Lancaster Press structure along with new exterior balconies suspended from the original concrete framing.
Greenebaum Structures designed numerous custom connections between new steel framing and the existing concrete framing. We also designed roof reinforcement for a new roof top deck and roof-mounted mechanical equipment, two new stair towers and an additional elevator shaft. The new entry lobby required significant modifications to the existing structure including the addition of an ornamental canopy extending from the building which meets architecturally exposed structural steel specifications. The building now serves as a stellar example of urban reuse in the center of a thriving city.
The Lofts at Worthington
A stellar addition to the upscale 87-acre Township Square neighborhood in Manheim Township, The Lofts at Worthington-Building A features a first-floor restaurant topped by two floors of traditional apartments and trendy loft-style apartments.
Partnering with Speedwell Construction and Cornerstone Design Architects, Greenebaum Structures designed 14,906 sq.ft./two-story wood construction on a precast concrete plank pedestal to separate the building’s two uses. Additionally, vaulted roof trusses provide a functional well to hide roof-mounted mechanical equipment and also creates dramatic cathedral ceilings in the apartments below.
When the Worthington at Township Square neighborhood is completed, this mixed-use building will be joined by 196 single-family homes, 33 townhomes and 30 duplexes along with a commercial center, Worthington shoppes at Township Square.
