Constructed on the site of former plumbing supply warehouse, Atlantic Plumbing is a 310-unit, mixed-use apartment building and shares the site with an adjacent condominium building, 2030AP. Atlantic Plumbing residents enjoy a fitness center, rooftop pool, below-grade parking, and landscaped roof terraces. The cantilevering glass and aluminum facade offer a modern feel, while prominent steel frames and materials salvaged from the original warehouse connect the ten-story building to the area’s past. SGH consulted on the building enclosure for this project.
