What if we could renovate a long-standing industrial eyesore into a resource for the community?
The Cape Ann Tool Company building, located on Pigeon Cove in Rockport since the 1890s, grew over the years of its operation to encompass nearly 100,000 SF of factory and production space. This project restores the building to its historic core, for use as local retail and restaurant space. Inspired by the coastal New England industrial vernacular textures, forms, and proportions, the building balances existing conditions with contemporary needs – all with smart, efficient design strategies to maximize rental space and create a commercial and community hub.
This project is currently under construction.
