This historic mixed-use building , a two story brick masonry structure with beautiful detailing, has been restored with updated commercial spaces on ground floor and apartments above. The restoration of 511 brought original brickwork, timber beams and wood floors back to life while adding modern finishes and amenities in the living, dining and bathing spaces. By curating the new and old, the original character is enhanced by taking advantage of the abundant natural light from the large, restored windows and the elevated ceiling height. A new set of residential balconies and a proposed commercial terrace take advantage of the new Roebuck Square and help knit this historic structure into the public life of the SoDo District.
