After decades of neglect, the long-forgotten Burlington Mail Terminal is revitalized and rebranded as the Rail & Commerce Building. Considerate of its listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the 100,000 SF building is freshly renovated while offering glimpses of the original 1926 design throughout the five-story structure. Once used as an access for train cars to pull inside the building to unload the mail, the “track level” or lowest level, is utilized for underground parking. It is directly adjacent to and accessible from a new two-story parking garage built to the west of the building. The 30-foot ceiling height provided optimal space to insert an additional floor level, creating space for Commerce Village, a coworking community for creatives and entrepreneurs. The main level of the building is the new home for Boyd Jones adjacent to a restaurant with access to a 2,300 SF patio. Levels 2 and 3 are the new office and collaboration spaces for Warren Distribution. The comprehensive renovation included removal of toxic material (chemically treated flooring and lead paint); demolition of select interior walls; facade improvements; installation of new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems; new, energy efficient windows; an additional set of stairs; two new elevators; and a rooftop solar array.
