616 Niagara is made up of three buildings, connected with a new atrium that spans the vacant lot between two of the buildings.
One of the largest challenges of working with an old, vacant building was uncovering unforeseen conditions once interior demolition began. Montante Construction had to work through extensive water damage and major structural issues including floor leveling and wall shoring, while maintaining as much of the original fabric as possible.
The first floor is now anchored by Niagara Global Tourism Institute (NGTI) and a café space on the corner, with the upper two levels consisting of 17 residential units. This project is listed on the National Historic Register and is renovated to comply with the National Parks Service. The first floor received new store front windows to replicate the original design intent, and the upper floors received new windows in their existing openings. Brick was re-pointed and repaired where necessary, a new roof installed and the overall structure stabilized.
