Building 203: Project Background
Formerly a U.S. Army locomotive repair shop for the Charles Melvin Price Support Center, the structural integrity of Building 203 is superb, with a 10" thick concrete pad surrounding the entire structure. In July 2018 the Port was awarded a grant from the Economic Development Administration to bring Building 203 up to a stable and watertight condition, allowing the Port to market the building to potential manufacturing tenants. The Lawrence Group and Horner & Shifrin were engaged to design Phase I improvements to the building, which included $1.42 million in construction, including selective demolition, structural repairs, roof replacement, and miscellaneous site improvements. The total floor space is just over 40,000SF, with a 40' ceiling height at the center and 22' at the eaves. Rail service into the building is currently disconnected but there is potential for reinstatement based on the needs of the next tenant. Explore the virtual tour below to learn more.
