Florida Brewery Historic Renovation
Ybor City, Florida
Owner: Tampa Florida Brewing, LTD.
This 45,000 s.f. historic structure was initially built in 1896 in Ybor City, Florida. The scope of work entailed the complete renovation/conversion of the five-story historic brewery into offices and retail spaces. All the masonry was tuck-pointed, the historic tower was rebuilt with a standing seam copper roof, new windows were installed, a new built-up roof system was installed, and all interior spaces were completely renovated, including installing new electric, voice/data, and HVAC.
The difficult task of maintaining the historic integrity of this 19th century structure, while updating it for 21st century occupants, was met through constant communication and cooperation among team members. All tenant requirements were satisfied by the design team and implemented by the construction team.
