This property was originally built in 1937 and expanded in 1948 as the central warehouse for the Hecht Company Department Stores. The six story building was constructed in a Streamline Modern style featuring glass block extensively, culminating in a twelve-point star shaped cupola at the corner that is illuminated at night.  Douglas Development purchased the building in 2011 and is currently redeveloping the property into a mixed-use retail and residential complex. A 900+ parking garage has been constructed and MOM’s Organic is open as of October 2014. Construction is nearly complete on the warehouse building which features over 300 apartments and 150,000+ SF of retail.
