Knoebel Construction has completed construction on the $3 million historic renovation of the former Langenberg Hat Building in Washington, Missouri, at 330 W. Front St. As general contractor, Knoebel Construction converted the two-story brick building into a multi-use space featuring six two-bedroom lofts and Streetside Tacos, a sit-down restaurant, on the first floor.
The developer was Marquart Landing Properties, L.L.C. and the architect was The Van Hooser Partnership.
The construction of the historic building included renovation of the façade, structural modifications and all-new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, roofing, sidewalks, stairs, parking lot and elevator. The historic renovation was funded in part through the city’s Downtown Building Rehabilitation Program.
The new 2020-square-foot Streetside Tacos features an open-view kitchen, outdoor patio, vibrant artwork, salsa and chip bar and views of the Missouri River and Washington Riverfront. The first floor also features two lofts, room for future build-out of additional retail space and offices. Four additional lofts are located on the second floor. The 1,350 to 1,730-square-foot, one-bedroom and one-and-a-half bathroom lofts retain the historic charm of the building with exposed brick, hardwood floors, wood beams and tall ceilings.
