520 Park Avenue and the Mount Vernon Marketplace
Originally constructed in 1942 and now part of the Market Center National Register Historic District, the Hochschild, Kohn & Co. Service Warehouse is an adaptive use project that has transformed the 216,000 sf site at 520 Park Avenue into a variety of ground-level retail spaces and 171 apartments on the upper floors. This building’s modern transformation incorporates a unique and expansive courtyard into the center of the building. This courtyard allows double-loaded corridors, with half of the residential units overlooking the street and half overlooking the courtyard, creating a sense of community. Amenities include a business center, fitness & yoga center, cyber café and multi-purpose rooms. Mount Vernon Marketplace is located at the ground floor. This furniture showroom has been transformed into a 15,000 sf artisan food hall. The innovative space has garnered significant attention for its wide-ranging food items, special events, modern aesthetics, and its ability to bring the community together.
