The historic Hofheimer Building was built in 1928 and according to the Department of Historic Resources is the only example of Exotic Revival-style architecture in Scott’s Addition. As part of a turn-of-the-century revival in "Oriental" architectural influences; It was constructed for the Herold R. Hofheimer Rug Company which stored and cleaned oriental rugs. Mr. Hofheimer's firm opened for business in the early years of the Scott's Addition industrial district and is considered one of it's iconic landmarks. The building's annex and rooftop were adapted in 1937 to allow for outdoor cleaning and drying of carpets and rugs, the standard process at the time. Our team analysed the structure and were able to convert the rooftop back into a fully functional commercial restaurant space.

The 15,000 sq. ft. property was revitalized utilizing federal and state historic tax credits. The property was re-zoned to B-7 and leased to 3 commercial tenants. Award-winning restaunteur Peter Chang occupies 3,000 sq. ft. of ground floor space. Uzurv, a local technology company occupies 3,000 sq. ft. of office space. And the remainder of the building houses the The HofGarden, a 9,000 sq. ft. rooftop beer garden & event venue.
