ACME Timber Lofts is a preservation, restoration and vertical expansion of an existing 3.5-story, 150-year-old, unreinforced masonry structure, via a new CLT stair and elevator core and two-story CLT honeycomb extension, with exposed CLT interior and exterior walls and ceilings. The renovated building is also designed to Passive House standards.  The five-story project will contain 18 residential apartments, ground-floor retail, cellar gym, bike room, and trash room, and rooftop tenant amenity space and solar panels. Located at 33 Crown Street in the Ninth Square Historic District, the ACME building served as the headquarters for the multi-generational ACME Furniture business since the late 1980s until its closure in 2017 and is situated Downtown, proximate to New Haven’s train stations, the Yale New Haven medical complex, Yale University and the City’s growing biotech center.
