Case Studies in Commercial Ductless Systems: LG for Historic Building Retrofit

9 June 2017
At the edge of Downtown Providence, RI, stands the Sharpe Building at the Foundry, a 157,500 square foot former mill that has been renovated into a six-story building with 196 loft-style luxury residences.

The Challenge
Originally built in 1872, The Foundry has a rich history dating back more than a century. Once the former manufacturing campus of industrial powerhouse Brown & Sharpe, the 13 brick buildings located on 26 acres at the edge of downtown Providence, RI have been meticulously restored into a mixed-use complex, which bridges the old and new.
 
In the middle of the sprawling complex is the Sharpe Building at the Foundry, which served as a mill during the building’s manufacturing years. The goal for the renovation of the 157,500-square-foot, six-story building was to develop 196 loft-style luxury residences. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003, the Sharpe Building required a renovation that upgraded the functionality of the building while maintaining the historic design.
